YouTube has imposed a weeklong suspension of conservative news network One America News (OAN) and demonetized its channel for violating its policies.
OAN was reportedly suspended for indicating that there is a cure for COVID-19 and was demonetized for "repeated violations" of "COVID-19 misinformation policy and other channel monetization policies."
The network has 1.22 million subscribers on YouTube.
Alternative cable networks such as OAN and Newsmax have had a boost in ratings since Election Day, when Fox News called Arizona early for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in a move that disenfranchised many of its conservative viewers. Fox News reportedly lost 3.1 million viewers in the following week.
President Trump has also declared public support for OAN in recent weeks.
Public figures who support the network have faced backlash, such as Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy, who received a $1 million pay cut this year for wearing an OAN shirt on vacation.
In order to regain monetized status on YouTube, OAN will have to reapply to the platform's Partner Program.
