Gemma O'Doherty - "I am now censored for the crime of Journalism"
Ms O'Doherty said she lost 4 years of work on Tuesday after she was permanently banned from Google's video platform youtube over alleged breaches of its rules around hate speech .
Ms O'Doherty was a frequent user of the Video Platform where she held live interviews with other Journalists and political commentators from around Ireland and the world and had a substantial following of 26k + subscribers at the time of her ban
Speaking to her supporters outside Google HQ in Dublin , O'Doherty said she is still waiting for an explanation from Google as to why she was banned from its platform .
I am still waiting for an explanation as to why this outrageous attack on my work has happened . They haven't given me an explanation because there is no explanation .
As a Journalist , I have been exposing child sexual abuse at the highest levels of this country and in america , and they know that . My only crime was to protect innocent children and to stand up against corruption . I am now censored for the crime of Journalism .
I have asked Google today , give me one shred of evidence , something that I have said that you can shut down my channel , but they have not been able to come back with even one example of hate speech . How do we judge what hate speech is . Nothing that has ever come out of my mouth has been hateful . All that I have ever done is to speak out against the corruption that is endemic in this state and that is my only crime
Meanwhile , Irish Musician Jim Corr has taken to Twitter to lend his support to Ms O'Doherty , calling for an end to censorship of patriot and conservative voices .
