Seaman said his account was “revoked without any notice” after he linked to a video concerning the presidential candidate’s health. The video, he said, had been watched in excess of 3.5 million times. According to the journalist, the issue “was a very newsworthy thing for me to link out to, people are talking about, that hashtag has been quite popular.”

Seaman spoke about the fact that he has written and filed “hundreds of stories” in his career as a journalist and has not encountered a situation like this, according to Real Politics.
“They’re deleting and censoring commentary on her health – why is that?” asked Seaman. “Do they not want more people to watch that video on YouTube, is that what’s going on here?”
Meanwhile, as reported by the Washington Post, Drew Pinsky’s HLN show, “Dr. Drew On Call,” was also brought to closure effective September 22. While the decision comes eight days after Pinsky commented on his radio show about Clinton’s health and medical care, CNN has not given particular reason for terminating the show.

Pinksy’s comments came in the wake of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump saying Clinton lacks “the mental and physical stamina” for the job of a president. While the episode wherein Pinsky made his comments was deleted, a transcript of such was uploaded by the Washington Free Beacon.
In a statement, CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz said he and Pinsky “have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22.″
