YouTube has reportedly apologized for taking down a video featuring journalist Peter Hitchens, who is a fierce critic of the lockdown approach.
The video in question was uploaded on the platform by the New Culture Forum. In it, New Culture Forum founder and Director Peter Whittle interviewed Hitchens and talked about the U.K.’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the media. Hitchens accused the media of one-sided reporting of the pandemic and said he believes that networks are not inviting him on-air because he opposes lockdowns. He also criticized the government’s response to the pandemic and said conservatism is on the decline.
