AT&T, parent company of MSNBC, which Trump often calls out as Fake News, got a bunch of tax breaks.
Meanwhile, Trump reportedly talks about pulling MSNBC's license (which he doesn't actually do, but bear with me):
I look at these tax breaks at quid pro quo. MSNBC (which Trump calls MSDNC) talks about Trump incessantly, yet they claim to hate him. "Free" advertising for Trump. Great for ratings.
No advertiser in their right mind would want their products/services advertised against some of the abhorrent shit on YouTube. That and the resulting outrage from advertisers, i.e. those who actually pay the bills, are the only reasons Google (and others) are bothering to take any action against this content: because it cannot be monetized.
These companies are only acting out of their own financial interests, not some moral imperative. And if you're not paying, you're probably the product.
