Los Angeles-based Prager University is a conservative media organization and technically a charity. It produces online videos that oppose gay rights, multiculturailism, government-run healthcare, gun control and climate change. Hosted by radio personality Dennis Prager, these videos have gotten more than 2 billion views in total. Today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is hearing arguments in a lawsuit filed by Prager University. Prager says Google is censoring more than 50 of its videos because Google’s filters automatically block content deemed offensive.
