    Default Google defeats conservative nonprofit's YouTube censorship appeal

    By Jonathan StempelNEW YORK (Reuters) - Google persuaded a federal appeals court on Wednesday to reject claims that YouTube illegally censors conservative content.In a 3-0 decision that could apply to platforms such as Facebook <FB.O>, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle found that YouTube was not a public forum subject to First Amendment scrutiny by judges.It upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit against Google and YouTube by Prager University, a conservative nonprofit run by radio talk show host Dennis Prager.PragerU claimed that YouTube's opposition to its political views led it to tag dozens of videos on such topics as abortion, gun rights, Islam and terrorism for its "Restricted Mode" setting, and block third parties from advertising on the videos.Writing for the appeals court, however, Circuit Judge Margaret McKeown said YouTube was a private forum despite its "ubiquity" and public accessibility, and hosting videos did not make it a "state actor" for purposes of the First Amendment.McKeown also dismissed PragerU's false advertising claim, saying YouTube's "braggadocio" about its commitment to free speech --such as "everyone deserves to have a voice, and [the] world is a better place when we listen, share and build community through our stories" -- were merely opinions. more >>slotxo
