Funding Alternative Media Campaign

Youtube has made a major change to their longstanding advertising policy and this has resulted in an enormous setback for independent journalism. Their policy change deprives independent journalists of advertising revenue if we report on such topics as war and political conflicts. This imposes a serious financial hardship for those trying to earn revenue from reporting. 

YouTube will no longer allow me to earn a living when I report on some of the most critical stories of our time, that's why I'm forced to create this GoFundMe page and ask for your help. The Representative Press channel needs your donation because YouTube has changed the policy which I relied on for revenue to support critical and vital journalism and to advocate for media reform. YouTube has removed the ads from over a hundred videos on the Representative Press channel!

I talk about the situation in the video called "Because YouTube continues their unfair policy, would you consider helping to fight back?" which I embedded at the top of this page. 

I explain the situation in detail in the above video. And there is more information in the YouTube petition video called "YouTube, Please Restore Ad Revenue for Journalists Reporting on War & Political Conflicts ": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3migvCsRxi4

And here is a direct link to the petition (That's the link to the petition attempting to get YouTube to change their policy back. The petition continues but in the meantime, it is necessary to ask for funds to continue.)

I started this petition to ask them to stop imposing such a financial hardship on independent media but their policy still hasn't been changed back so Representative Press channel is still being financially crippled simply because I report news on topics such as war and political conflicts, hence the need to ask for funds now. You can listen to the videos where I explain what is happening and if you have any questions please contact me. Donations and spreading the word helps!
