Conservative broadcaster and Fox News host Dan Bongino was permanently banned by YouTube on Wednesday, with the video-sharing platform claiming that he attempted to evade a prior suspension.
The evasion included Bongino uploading new video content to his primary video channel while a second channel used to share short video clips from his radio program was actively suspended due to YouTube’s COVID-19 misinformation policy.
Both of Bongino’s YouTube channels have now been shut down and he will no longer be able to create a new channel, a spokesman from the company told The Hill on Wednesday.
Earlier in January, Bongino said his YouTube account had been temporarily suspended and demonetized for 30 days. His suspended channel had nearly 900,000 subscribers.
