YouTube deletes newspaper's video of pro-Trump protesters shouting claims of election fraud in front of the Colorado state capitol, reinstates video following appeal: YouTube deleted video footage of a protest taking place outside the Colorado state capitol, which was uploaded by local news outlet the Colorado Times Recorder. "A Colorado Times Recorder reporter recorded the video while covering a 'Stop the Steal' rally last December. At the event, speakers touted patently false election fraud conspiracies in front of the Colorado state capitol building," the local outlet wrote. "Upon realizing the video was taken down, we submitted an appeal form explaining that the video was original news reporting on election misinformation, and was intended to debunk the lies being spread. YouTube responded to the appeal within minutes, and soon thereafter, the video reappeared on our channel."
