Despite Lawsuit, PragerU Claims Discrimination From Google and YouTube

How is one supposed to succeed when the system is set up for you to fail?

Five months after Prager University slapped Google with a discrimination lawsuit for censorship of its conservative videos on YouTube featuring prominent names from across the Right-of-Center spectrum, PragerU is now claiming that the restrictions that were being placed on their informational videos haven’t stopped.

PragerU’s Chief Marketing Officer Craig Strazzeri went on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” morning show and spoke with host Pete Hegseth about the censorship of his organization’s videos on YouTube.

Here's video of the exchange:

"We’re still trying to figure out why in the world they’re [PragerU videos] restricted," Strazzeri said. "It’s been a year and a half since we first discovered that our videos are restricted — and for anyone who hasn’t seen a PragerU video — they’re all five minutes long. They feature some of the best thinkers in the world on life’s most important topics."

Some of the PragerU educational explainer videos that have been restricted by YouTube have ranged from “Why America Must Lead” to “Gun Rights Are Women’s Rights.”

Sounds like pretty controversial stuff, right? Why wouldn’t YouTube and Google want videos like this restricted if they’ve been released for educational purposes?

Strazzeri believes the reason is pretty cut and dry.

"So it’s clear to us at this point that they’re targeting us because we’re conservative," Strazzeri continued. "In fact, we have it in writing from them."

In light of PragerU's findings that YouTube has continued to discriminate against them, Strazzeri spoke about what his organization's next step is in its legal fight against the almighty Google.

“We’ve been left with no choice then to file lawsuit, which we did in October,” Strazzeri told Hegseth. “Look, somebody has to fight Goliath. I mean, these big tech companies will keep on silencing conservative voices unless someone fights up.”

We’ll have to wait and see if what the justice system has to say as PragerU’s lawsuit against Google continues.
