This morning, National File was informed via an automated message from Google that our Adsense account was being suspended due to supposedly “sexual” content on this website.
Google Adsense informed National File that “your ad serving has either been disabled or the inventory has been restricted” due to “sexual content” on the website. Google does not provide examples of supposedly sexual content found on National File, and instead informs this publication that it is to “remove the sexual content, then request a review in the Policy Center” or “Remove the ad code from the page, then wait 7-10 days for the violation notification” to be removed.

While making a press inquiry about Google’s decision to censor this publication, National File informed the big tech giant that “There is no sexual content on NationalFile.com, as we are a news website, not a pornography website. Any “sexual” content would be incidental, as it would likely pertain to news reports. Accordingly, it would be heavily censored to comport with journalistic standards.” (READ MORE: Google Search Lists George Floyd As ‘American hip-hop artist,’ Features His Songs About Drug Abuse)

National File asked Google if it has a statement about its decision to cancel a conservative news website’s advertising revenue for such a vague and spurious reason, and did not receive an immediate response. However, National File has a long history of exposing Google’s anti-conservative, anti-family, and pro-China agenda. (READ MORE: Google Notifies Children If Parents Are Monitoring Their Accounts)
As early as 2019, when National File was only a few months old, National File reported that the wife of a Google whistleblower who claimed the tech giant rigs elections for Democrats conspicuously died in a car accident. Only a few months later, in February of last year, National File uncovered that Google funds the radical left-wing Young Turks’ new leftist “journalism tactics academy” with its $300 million Google News Initiative.

Also in 2020, Google began censoring the anti-CCP phrase “communist bandit” from YouTube comments sections, scaled back its diversity program due to fears it would appear “anti-conservative”, and worked with a so-called digital hate watchdog to ban The Federalist and ZeroHedge from advertising with Adsense. It is unknown if a similar alliance was formed to strip National File of its Adsense revenue. (READ MORE: Google Reportedly Scales Back Diversity Program, Fears Appearing ‘Anti-Conservative’)
