Least Biased - Slight left lean - Credible

YouTube has announced the restoration of former President Donald Trump’s channel on its platform after an almost 14-month suspension. The suspension was put in place following the Capitol Hill riots on January 6, 2021, which resulted in the platform’s decision to remove Trump’s videos and suspend his channel.

YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki stated that the suspension was meant to last until “the risk of violence had decreased.” According to a YouTube spokesperson, the decision to restore Trump’s channel was based on “changes in the political landscape” and “newsworthiness” considerations, as well as their assessment of the ongoing risk of violence. Trump’s channel will be allowed to publish new content, although it will be subject to YouTube’s content policies, including its policies on hate speech and incitement to violence.
