The JREF Censored by YouTube?

Editorial

 

It's been brought to my attention that the James Randi Educational Foundation's account has been suspended by YouTube.

 

There are no details as of yet, but it appears that it is a direct act of censorship. We need you to act!

 

Many of you may not even be familiar with the JREF, so here is some background taken from a small section of their entry on the Wikipedia [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JREF ]:

 

The James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) is a Fort Lauderdale, Florida non-profit organization founded in 1996 by magician and skeptic James Randi. The JREF's mission includes educating the public and the media on the dangers of accepting unproven claims, and to support research into paranormal claims in controlled scientific experimental conditions.

The organization offers a prize of one million U.S. dollars which it claims it will pay out to anyone who can demonstrate a supernatural or paranormal ability under agreed-upon scientific testing criteria. The JREF also maintains a legal defense fund to assist persons who are attacked as a result of their investigations and criticism of people who make paranormal claims.
