YouTube is removing videos of North Korea and people are asking why

By Matt Hoffman, Buzz60

YouTube has been shutting down channels featuring videos about NorthKorea, according to NK News.

Within the last month, the video sharing website terminated two accounts which regularly featured content about the country, one run by a Polish national living in Japan and the other by a Vietnamese citizen.

In December, YouTube blocked North Korea's state television channel, Korean Central Television. The Washington Post reported at the time that YouTube might have feared that advertising revenue would represent a violation of international sanctions, but that explanation would not seem to apply to the recent terminations.

While the motivation for these removals is unclear, they leave North Koreaeven more isolated from the rest of the world.
