TikTok deletes clip of Glenn Greenwald's show System Update: TikTok deleted an episode of Glenn Greenwald's show, System Update, according to purported screenshots shared by Greenwald on his Substack. In the video clip, Greenwald spoke about how legacy media reporting on Ukraine changed after Russia invaded the country in February. TikTok claimed the video violated its guidelines against integrity and authenticity. The policy claims it removes "content or accounts that involve spam or fake engagement, impersonation, or misleading information that causes significant harm." It is unclear how the clip violated the platform's policy. Greenwald's team appealed TikTok's decision. It is unclear if the platform accepted the appeal. However, the video appears to have been restored on the System Update account. TikTok did not respond to MRC Free Speech America's request for comment at the time of publication.
