YouTube has stopped The Epoch Times from earning money off its videos.

Just the News reported the media company was stripped of its ability to monetize video content just days ago.

"YouTube demonetized The Epoch Times and related accounts last week," Stephen Gregory, publisher of The Epoch Times told Just the News in an email. "This is the latest example of big tech suppression of free speech, a step on the road to communist-style censorship."

A YouTube spokesperson confirmed The Epoch Times and affiliated channels had been demonetized and the publication had been suspended from the YouTube Partner Program. "All channels on YouTube need to comply with our Community Guidelines, and in order to monetize, channels must comply with the YouTube Partner Program policies, which include our Advertiser-Friendly Guidelines," the spokesperson said. "Channels that repeatedly violate these policies are suspended from our partner program."

The spokesperson said those suspended from the YPP can reapply in 30 days.

Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has called it "very concerning" five big tech firms all shut down then-President Donald Trump's social media accounts in the wake of the deadly Capitol Building siege.

In a Jan. 14 interview on Newsmax TV, Paxton elaborated on his civil investigation demands on Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon Web Services, and Apple, asking for their policies and practices on content moderation.
