AN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego-based One America News Network was suspended Tuesday, Nov. 24 from uploading new videos to its YouTube channel for one week for posting a video claiming there is a COVID-19 cure.
YouTube officials said they took action due to a violation of its COVID-19 misinformation policy, resulting in the removal of the video and a strike on OAN's channel. The strike means the channel remains live, but new videos or livestreams cannot be uploaded for one week.
YouTube's three-strikes policy allows for three such violations before an account is terminated.
