Neither of those links say or show Apple "banning YouTube."
Maybe ban was a strong word. "Obstacles for more value adding services" would be a more correct term.
If "strong" means completely inaccurate and... No, it would not as these are a year old. Apple removed its own YouTube app and permitted Google to release its own more fully-featured YouTube app so Apple actually increased openness, functionality, and content availability.
