We have been writing about Dennis Prager's 'Prager University' videos since the beginning of the project, and their success is undeniable.
Prager U. reaches millions of people with informative videos about politics, history and culture. Their outreach has become so effective that the left is now offering a version of their own.
One of the two posts of mine that sent some alumni, faculty, and students at Cornell Law School into a rage regarded the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" slogan which has become synonymous with the Black Lives Matter Movement.
Dennis Prager and his YouTube video series known as Prager University must be scaring the hell out of the left. In January, Prager U was targeted by the New York Times. Now, Jon Stewart wannabee Samantha Bee is going after Prager U, even calling it "dangerous."
Several years ago, Dennis Prager launched Prager University, a YouTube series aimed at providing fact-based educational videos on history, civics, culture, and more. Prager's aim was to counter the never-ending flow of anti-American and often wrong progressive views pushed on college campuses.
We haven't written a lot about AJ+ (@AJplus), but we have written some.
We've tweeted about @AJplus more than we've written, with the periodic reminder that @AJplus is the viral video wing of the anti-Israel movement:
Here at LI, we love PragerU and often share their excellent videos with our readers. So it was with great interest that I read an article at BuzzFeed about "How PragerU Is Winning The Right-Wing Culture War Without Donald Trump." They don't quite get it because they can't quite wrap their minds around PragerU's focus on ideas rather than on politicians or parties.
No one trusts the media these days and for good reason. Biased reporting, a disproportionate amount of attention exerted towards tearing down conservatives and traditionalism, and supposed fact-based reporting sneakily meshed with opinion all contribute to the growing tension between the American people and the fourth estate.
PragerU, an online purveyor of educational videos run by its namesake, Dennis Prager, filed a complaint against Google and YouTube Monday. The complaint alleges unlawful censorship and discrimination of first amendment rights.
YouTube, which is a subsidiary of Google, has on numerous occasions censored PragerU videos. Often, restricted or demonetized videos aren't even what most would consider controversial subject matter, but offers opinions from a conservative point of view. “Why America Must Lead,” “The Ten Commandments: Do Not Murder,” “Why Did America Fight the Korean War,” and “The World’s Most Persecuted Minority: Christians" have all been dinged by YouTube.
We're no stranger to YouTube suspensions here, having been arbitrarily subjected to one ourselves.
Former Dirty Jobs host turned skilled worker spokesman was shocked to find a video he'd done in conjunction with Prager U had received the YouTube ban hammer. I mini-blogged Rowe's video 'Don't Follow Your Passion' last year.
