Giant political site Breitbart features an image of Jason Blaha accompanying an article relating to a Youtube censorship purge of gun-demo Youtube channels. The article is short and doesn’t mention Blaha but Blaha has an instructional gun channel along with his fitness channel.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF):
We suspect it will be interpreted to block much more content than the stated goal of firearms and certain accessory sales. We see the real potential for the blocking of educational content that serves instructional, skill-building and even safety purposes. Much like Facebook, YouTube now acts as a virtual public square. The exercise of what amounts to censorship, then, can legitimately be viewed as the stifling of commercial free speech.
Andrew James Breitbart (/ˈbraɪtbɑːrt/; February 1, 1969 – March 1, 2012) was an American entrepreneur, conservative publisher, commentator for The Washington Times, media critic, journalist, author, and television and radio personality on various news programs, who served as an editor for the Drudge Report website. He was a researcher for and close friend of Arianna Huffington, and he helped create an early version of The Huffington Post.
After helping in the early stages of The Huffington Post and Drudge Report, Breitbart created his own website Breitbart.com, a news and right-wing opinion website, along with multiple other “BIG” sites – BIGHollywood, BIGGovernment, BIGJournalism. He played central roles in the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, the firing of Shirley Sherrod, and the ACORN 2009 undercover videos controversy. Commenters such as Nick Gillespie and Conor Friedersdorf have credited Breitbart with changing how people wrote about politics.
