Google-owned video behemoth YouTube, facing increased competition from platforms that are friendlier to free speech including Rumble and Twitter, has dropped a policy responsible for the widespread censoring of conservative voices. It is now possible to dispute the results of the 2020 election on YouTube.

Stressing the need to allow people to “openly debate political ideas,” YouTube said it will “stop removing content that advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches occurred in the 2020 and other past US Presidential elections.”

However, Google stressed that its election misinformation policies remain in place for future elections.

“Two years, tens of thousands of video removals, and one election cycle later, we recognized it was time to reevaluate the effects of this policy in today’s changed landscape,” the platform said in a blog post that is effective immediately.

“In the current environment, we find that while removing this content does curb some misinformation, it could also have the unintended effect of curtailing political speech without meaningfully reducing the risk of violence or other real-world harm.”

The post added that YouTube’s election misinformation policies will remain, prohibiting content that may mislead voters about the time, place, or eligibility requirements for voting.

Social media users did not seem enthused over the news, expressing that it may be a little too late to finally allow discussion on the 2020 election.

“YouTube has reversed their “election misinformation policy” and will now allow users to question the 2020 election results,” Collin Rugg tweeted. “Great! Now that the 2020 election is almost 3 years in the past, you are allowed to talk about it!”

“After nearly three years, YouTube has reversed their “election misinformation policy” and is now allowing people to say whatever they wish about the 2020 election,” Rep. Lauren Boebert wrote.

“Looks like even YouTube is ready for people to start talking TRUTH again. Will they now reinstate everyone who was…,” she added.
