An Introduction to altCensored.com

altCensored.com

altCensored.com is an Unbiased Community Catalog of YouTube (YT) Censored Videos, begun in February 2019. Unregistered ‘not for profit’.

Censored videos are those that have been placed in “Limited State” or completely removed by YT, or self-censored by the YT channel owner.

As of April 2020 we feature 41K+ videos. Of 5K+ monitored YT channels, 700+ have been removed by YT and we are proactively archiving 1.5K+ in case of deletion. (https://www.altcensored.com/about)

Goal
Be the reference for YouTube censored content through a community effort across ideological lines. Raise awareness of increasing online censorship.
