YouTube has barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for a week, saying it had breached rules on spreading Covid-19 misinformation.
It issued a “strike” under its three-strike policy, the last of which means permanent removal.
YouTube did not point to specific items but said it opposed material that “could cause real-world harm”.
The TV channel’s digital editor said the decision was a disturbing attack on the ability to think freely.
Many taxpayer supported K-12 school districts use Google (YouTube) services, including Madison.
