Johnson Discusses YouTube Censorship on ‘Fox News Primetime’

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) joined Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo Thursday to discuss YouTube’s recent action to delete multiple videos from his official YouTube account of the December 2020 Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on early-stage COVID treatments.

Excerpts are below and video of the interview can be found here.

“I think social media has sunk to a new low by ratcheting up their censorship. What they did is they took down a YouTube video of sworn testimony before my U.S. Senate committee. …The American people now won't be able to watch what U.S. senators were able to hear in testimony before the United States Senate on early treatment using ivermectin. This is testimony given by Dr. Pierre Kory, somebody in a critical care group, world-renowned, publishing all kinds of information.”

“I guess the doctors and Google think they’re just a whole lot smarter than world-renowned, courageous doctors that actually had the courage and compassion to treat COVID patients and save lives. Where does this go from here? This is unbelievable that they have taken down a video of testimony before a U.S. Senate committee.”
