Dan Bongino has parlayed his experience as a New York City police officer and secret service agent into a career as a Conservative pundit. His rise has been relatively swift. He was tabbed to be the replacement for Rush Limbaugh. Bongino has also been given his own show on Fox News.
To stay in the good graces of his Republican audience, the pundit has pushed the COVID-19 culture war hard. Even though he is vaccinated, Bongino called on his employer Cumulus Media to repeal their vaccine mandate, threatening to quit. He did not, however, make good on his promise.
Bongino has continued to push COVID misinformation on both his TV and radio shows. And now that push has resulted in the commentator being suspended from YouTube.
The ban will be in effect for one week. Bongino will be suspended for two weeks if he violates the policy again. According to The Hill:
“YouTube also removed Bongino’s channel from its Partner Program, which allows users to monetize their content through advertising, on Friday for ‘repeatedly violating’ guidelines on harmful and dangerous acts. A company spokesperson declined to specify what remark triggered the removal from the program.”
