The Australian-based content creator for Gido’s Fishing Adventures said his channel had been demonetised for a month and that he was waiting for a response from Google -owned YouTube.
“(YouTube’s notice) says I need to make adjustments to my content, and it’s to do with animal abuse apparently,” he said on his latest YouTube video . “You can actually read in there that what I’m doing is fine because I’m not abusing animals for shock, or whatever, which is what they’re against—which is fair enough, I’d be against it too—I’m just catching fish. “

“I asked for it two weeks ago, and they check over your content, and they check your channel before they send it—and they did—and they sent it out to me and said everything was good.”
“I’m confused; I don’t know what’s happening,” he said. “This is a major problem for me because the bulk of my income comes from YouTube these days. And I’m not getting paid anything.”
YouTube has yet to respond to Gido and to inquiries from The Epoch Times.
Rob Nicholls, associate professor of regulation and governance at the University of New South Wales, described Youtube’s demonetisation program as an “intermediate step” in its content moderation process.
“It is likely that this content was demonetised as part of an artificial intelligence analysis,” he told The Epoch Times. “To some extent, there is a parallel with the take-down of a chess channel on YouTube earlier […]
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
