LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2016 – Prager University (PragerU), a conservative online video production site, launched a petition today to draw attention to the fact that YouTube is censoring 21 of its videos.

YouTube is censoring these videos by placing them under “restricted mode.” Many families and schools enable restricted mode in order to keep inappropriate language, and explicit adult and sexual content away from children–not to prevent them from watching animated, age-appropriate, educational videos on topics ranging from economics and history to happiness and philosophy.
In response to an official complaint PragerU filed, Google specialists defended their restriction of our videos, and said, “We don’t censor anyone”, although they do “take into consideration what the intent of the video is” and “what the focus of the video is.”

There is no excuse for Google and YouTube censoring and restricting any PragerU videos, which are produced with the sole intent of educating people of all ages about America’s founding values.
