Sure it could. YouTube receives a substantial amount of traffic from music/videos provided by major record labels, who would almost certainly end such partnerships with a website that allowed full-fledged adult content such as nudity.


Meanwhile they're cool with being on the same website that gives North Korea its own channel.


Gives? Google didn't create that channel. Conflating a private companies ability to not host porn with an endorsement of every political idea expressed on their service is just... ****** _______.

They have the ability to not host North Korea porn.

What's more offensive, a boob or the guys who introduced cannibalism as a socialist way of life for the 21st century?

What's more offensive to capitalism?

I'm pretty sure the North Korea channel isn't hosting porn. Flag it for moderation if they are. lol

And you can choose to be offended by anything you want in this world. You may find a boob more offensive than cannibalism. But I'm pretty sure that the guys at Google know what they're doing. They don't strictly regulate political speech on that site. If someone does violate their terms of service, and it's flagged, their mods are some of the quickest on the net.

The notion that Google allowing this freedom of speech is "offensive to capitalism" suggests that capitalism is a petulant obnoxious child who'd be better off sticking their head in the sand if capitalism doesn't want to be offended.

It's not a freedom of speech issue. And if it was, they're banning the speech of artists who use nudity while giving a voice to cannibal gulagists who claim to want to destroy American capitalists like Google.
