5.) Dave Rubin Experiment
Popular online libertarian commentator Dave Rubin made a video titled “Socialism Isn’t Cool” and it was almost instantly labeled as not suitable for advertisers. His response was playful, yet very telling:
And of course, @TeamYouTube has demonetized my video on socialism. Guaranteed a critique of capitalism would’ve been just fine.— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) January 18, 2018

After failing to receive a reply, Rubin conducted a little social experiment, making a video entitled “Capitalism Isn't Cool.” In this video, he actually extolled the virtues of capitalism. Of course, YouTube gave this video it's stamp of approval for advertisers.
And we’re still monetized. Hmm! https://t.co/qc1cXZ5bDF— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) January 18, 2018
