YouTube closes channel of Venezuelan news outlet El Pitazo for video broadcast in 2019

"On the night of March 24, El Pitazo received notification of a new YouTube sanction against a video published by this native digital media outlet. This action, the third in three months, led to the definitive closure of the channel, which had more than 102,000 accumulated followers since Dec. 8, 2014, the date on which this media outlet began operations, and caused the loss of a six-year archive of news from our country. The video that motivated the sanction was published on Nov. 5, 2019. The audiovisual piece shows a woman yelling at some children and hitting another with a strap. The publication avoided showing the victims' faces."
