OANN suspended from YouTube after promoting a sham cure for Covid-19

The company said that the conservative news outlet, heralded by Trump, has repeatedly violated its policy on coronavirus misinformation

YouTube has suspended the conservative news outlet One America News Network from posting new videos for a week and from making money off of its existing videos after it promoted a sham cure for Covid-19.

The video was removed under YouTube’s policies to prevent the spread of Covid-19 misinformation, which prohibit saying there is a guaranteed cure to the virus. OANN has been suspended for “repeated violations” of this policy, said a YouTube spokeswoman, Ivy Choi.
