Analysts revealed: oil pipe deleted 2.5 million “step” the number of people in the White House video

Data collected and posted online by an anonymous web analyst shows that YouTube recently removed about 2.5 million people who “disliked” White House videos from President Joe Biden’s official White House channel.

All of Google’s video platforms allow users to rate videos with a thumbs up (like) or thumbs down (dislike/step). And while this design has been in use for 2 years, it also has a policy that allows the pipeline to remove videos it considers spam, whether people like or dislike them.

An Oil Pipe spokesman told The Epoch Times via email, “We have policies and systems in place to ensure that participants on Oil Pipe are authentic and to remove any fraudulent messages.” But he would not say what they are using as a metric.

The White House video constantly sees such interventions, but it appears to the analyst that the tube only removes the number of people who “dislike” it, while keeping the number of people who “like” it.

According to data posted on the website, the White House channel has posted more than 300 videos, but nearly 3.7 million more people have “disliked” them, and nearly 2.5 million of those “stomps” have been removed.

The anonymous website analyst has been tracking the White House videos since Jan. 26, and has posted all the data and his methods for collecting it. But she/he would not reveal her/his identity when asked by the media via email.

The analyst disclosed that the oil pipe would remove an average of nearly 8,000 points of dislike for each video of the White House. But the data shows that none of the people who clicked “like” were deleted.

The data also showed that even after the Tube’s intervention, each video was clicked “dislike” on average nearly six times more often than it was clicked “like. Without this intervention, the “dislike” rate for each video would have been 17 times higher than the “like” rate.

The social media posts said that it was some supporters of former President Trump who expressed their dislike of Biden’s White House video. Soon after the online video was shown, it often received thousands of “dislikes,” and a large percentage of those who clicked “dislike” were then deleted.

In some cases, the “dislike” response is removed approximately every hour, keeping the number of “dislikes” at the same level. But the data also shows that in other cases, most of the “dislikes” are cut immediately.

The site also lists the analyst’s analysis of other tubing channels that also have a large following. Under the same analysis, he/she found that the tube did not show this level of removal of “dislikes” for those videos.

The videos of PewDiePie, one of the most popular channels on the platform, did show that the tube removed some of the “like” and “dislike” posts, but a review of the data from the last two dozen videos on the channel showed that each video The maximum number of “likes” and “dislikes” deleted for each video was no more than a few dozen.

And the tube recently announced that it will test a design that still includes a “dislike” button, but no longer shows the number of “dislike” clicks. A Tubes spokesperson said via email, “This is a test for a small group of users and is in response to feedback from creators whose interests may be affected by the visible amount of feedback.”

The Tubes and its owner, Google, have long faced allegations of political bias. Both companies say their products are developed and run in a politically neutral state. But internal materials from their employee accounts and leaks suggest the companies are injecting their political leanings into their products.

According to research psychologist Robert Epstein, Google changed the course of millions of votes in the Nov. 3 election with altered search results and other tools compared to its competitors.

Epstein told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that “Google’s search results are strongly biased toward liberals and Democrats, which is not the case on Bing or Yahoo searches.” His data comes from the observations of more than 700 voters who work with him. They monitor the search results, alerts, search suggestions and pre-election news feeds they get from Google.
