As the historic arraignment of President Trump moves forward, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is refusing to allow cameras in the courtroom.

This decision was reported on by political commentator Lou Dobbs after reviewing court documents. He quoted Bragg on Twitter as saying “the prejudicial impact of pretrial publicity on the jurors, the impact on the truthfulness of the witnesses, responsibilities placed on the trial judge to assure a fair trial and the impact on the [defendant.”

Dobbs then questioned the decision, stating, “Bragg thinks there could be more publicity? That the jury isn’t already tainted, in a city with 8-1 voter roll advantage for Dems.”

While Manhattan is refusing cameras in the courtroom, YouTube is also taking steps to control the narrative around the case.

RSBN itself recently reported on being given a seven-day YouTube ban just as it was beginning to cover the events in New York. Protests and rallies are underway as Americans come out to show their support for President Trump which is highly newsworthy. 

In addition, Steven Crowder was given yet another YouTube strike as he prepared to cover the Trump arraignment. While his latest ban was issued regarding multiple topics, the Trump case was included.  

He noted how YouTube flagged his video about Trump going to prison, on the premise that it was considered harassment. He then went on to state, “This isn’t about really us and the content, they just found reasons to get strikes.”

He added, “This is about YouTube wanting to eliminate competition.”
