YouTube Moves to Make Conspiracy Videos Harder to Find
http://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/25/technology/youtube-conspiracy-theory-videos.html?partner=IFTTT





SAN FRANCISCO — Whether it is a video claiming the earth is flat or the moon landing was faked, conspiracy theories are not hard to find on Google’s YouTube. But in a significant policy change, YouTube said on Friday that it planned to stop recommending them.

After years of criticism that YouTube leads viewers to videos that spread misinformation, the company said it was changing what videos it recommended to users. In a blog post, YouTube said it would no longer suggest videos with “borderline content” or those that “misinform users in a harmful way” even if the footage did not violate its community guidelines.

YouTube said the number of videos affected by the policy change amounted to fewer than 1 percent of all videos on the platform. But given the billions of videos in YouTube’s library, it is still a large number. YouTube and other powerful technology platforms have faced rising criticism for failing to police the content that users post.

YouTube’s recommendation engine has been denounced for pushing users to troubling content even when they showed little interest in such videos. It has also been blamed for widening the political divide in the country, pushing already partisan viewers to more extreme points of view.

The new policy is also the latest example of YouTube’s taking a more aggressive approach to content that many find distasteful even if it is not in violation of the service’s community guidelines.

In late 2017, YouTube started putting “controversial religious or supremacist” content in a “limited state” so the videos are not monetized with advertising, and features such as comments and likes are turned off. Some videos appear behind a brief message saying the videos may be inappropriate or offensive.

YouTube provided only three examples of the types of videos that it would stop recommending: those promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, ones claiming the earth is flat or content making blatantly false claims about historic events like the Sept. 11 attacks.'

I have experienced this when searching for videos on Las Vegas shooting. They are been doing this for a couple months.

YouTube Demonitizes Anti-Vax Channels After BuzzFeed Contacts Advertisers
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-22/youtube-demonitizes-anti-vax-channels-after-buzzfeed-contacts-advertisers





'YouTube on Friday demonetized channels which promote anti-vax content, after BuzzFeed notified a spate of advertisers that their ads were being run alongside anti-vax videos, reports BuzzFeed. YouTube said that such videos fall under its policy prohibiting videos with "dangerous and harmful" content to be monetized.

We have strict policies that govern what videos we allow ads to appear on, and videos that promote anti-vaccination content are a violation of those policies. We enforce these policies vigorously, and if we find a video that violates them, we immediately take action and remove ads," reads an emailed statement from YouTube to BuzzFeed.

Quote
Seven different advertisers said they weren’t aware their ads were appearing on videos like “Mom Researches Vaccines, Discovers Vaccination Horrors and Goes Vaccine Free,” which advocates against vaccinating children, and reached out to YouTube to pull the programmatic placements.

Their ads appeared on videos from channels including VAXXED TV, LarryCook333 (a proponent of StopMandatoryVaccinations.com), and iHealthTube, all of which YouTube has since demonetized, or prevented from running ads. -BuzzFeed


One health tech company, Nomad Health, told BuzzFeed News that it "does not support the anti-vaccination movement," and was "not aware of our ads running alongside anti-vaccination videos." The company said it would "take action to prevent it from happening in the future." Another such advertiser - discount vitamin company Vitacost, said it pulled all of its advertising on Tuesday after a blogger made a viral video highlighting a "soft-core pedo ring" operating on the platform.

"We pulled all YouTube advertising on Tuesday morning when we noticed content issues. We had strict rules to prevent our ads from serving on sensitive content and they were not effective as promised," said a VitaCost spokesperson via email, who added. "We will continue to remain off of the platform until those changes are made and are proven to be effective by other advertisers."

The advertisers contacted by BuzzFeed said they were unaware that their algorithmically dictated "programmic ads" were appearing alongside anti-vax videos.

"When we purchase programmatic media, we specify parameters that restrict the placement of our ads from association with certain content. Even so, however, sometimes ads get served in places that we don’t approve of. This is one of those cases," said a Retail Me Not spokesperson. "We’re working to exclude this placement now."

A spokesman for software company Grammarly said the company also took immediate action.'

Anti-Vaccination Videos May Be YouTube’s Latest Front In Battle Against Conspiracies (to these idiots there are no conspiracies, you see)
http://www.tubefilter.com/2019/02/21/anti-vaccination-videos-youtube-conspiracies/





'In addition to reportedly serving as a breeding grounds for ‘flat earth’ conspiracy theorists, YouTube is now coming under fire for propagating yet another strain of misinformation: anti-vaccination videos. The issue has come to light amid a national measles outbreak in Washington state.

BuzzFeed found in a self-conducted study that when searching for ‘immunization’ on a virgin account, and after playing the first suggested video — a pro-vaccination clip — the top video in the ‘Up Next’ section was an anti-vaccination video. After playing that clip, BuzzFeed reports, YouTube’s sophisticated algorithm recommended others. In a report earlier this month, The Guardian similarly found that YouTube’s algorithm was “steering viewers from fact-based medical information toward anti-vaccine misinformation.” While the anti-vaccination movement has gained steam in recent years, given unsubstantiated speculation that vaccinations cause autism, BuzzFeed notes that the scientific consensus is that vaccines are safe. The Guardian notes that the World Health Organization (WHO) calls vaccine hesitancy one of the top 10 greatest threats to global health in 2019.

The issue has recently garnered the attention of prominent lawmakers. California Rep. Adam Schiff sent letters to both Google and Facebook last week, per BuzzFeed, stating that YouTube’s recommendations represented “a direct threat to public health, and reversing progress made in tackling vaccine-preventable disease.”

Accordingly, Facebook says it’s tweaking its algorithm to prevent health-related misinformation from being recommended, per BuzzFeed. And Pinterest, for its part, has taken the most drastic measures of all by banning vaccination-related searches across its platform full-stop, given that most shared images in relation to the topic recommended against vaccination, according to The Wall Street Journal.'

YouTube shuts down comments on videos with minors

YouTube shuts down comments on videos with minors amid advertisers fleeing over ‘child porn’ scandal
http://www.rt.com/news/452708-youtube-pedophile-ring-busted/





'YouTube has disabled comments under "tens of millions of videos" with children doing innocuous things such as yoga, after an investigation revealed the presence of preying pedophiles and sparked a mass exodus of advertisers.

In a blog post on Thursday, the video-sharing site said it had started closing down comment sections on videos featuring minors "that could be subject to predatory behavior." Such videos number in the "tens of millions," YouTube said, promising to expand the purge "over the next few months."

The Google-owned company said that only "a small number of creators will be able to keep the comments enabled on these types of videos."

The accounts that would be allowed to stay open to user feedback, will have to step up their moderating game and will be required "to demonstrate a low risk of predatory behavior." YouTube said that it would directly engage with creators of these high-risk videos. The platform did not specify the type of content at the center of its newest crackdown apart from noting that it features "young and older minors."

Thursday's update is part the company's ongoing efforts to stop big corporate advertisers from fleeing en masse after a viral exposé revealed how YouTube was inadvertently helping pedophiles thrive on the platform.

It all started with a vlog posted by YouTuber Matt Watson on February 17, in which he lambasted the hands-off approach YouTube allegedly takes on pedophiles by not only allowing them to share timestamps with children in comprising positions, but also automatically suggesting videos with the same type of content.

"I have discovered a wormhole, as I would call it, into a soft-core pedophile ring on YouTube. Here pedophiles are trading social media content, they are providing links to actual child porn," Watson said in the video.'

YouTube to Unleash New ‘Hoax Alert!’ Fact-Checking Feature
http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/alexander-hall/2019/03/08/youtube-unleash-new-hoax-alert-fact-checking-feature





'A YouTube spokesperson told BuzzFeed that “[a]s part of our ongoing efforts to build a better news experience on YouTube, we are expanding our information panels to bring fact checks from eligible publishers to YouTube.” While this was originally launched to combat serious and malicious misinformation in places like India, there is concern that it will be weaponized in the future.

As of now, the feature is currently only available in India, which is one of YouTube’s largest markets. India has struggled with the spread of genuinely malicious misinformation, which has caused mob violence and other havoc there. The New York Times cited one particular example where a Pakistani public service announcement about kidnappings was edited to make it look like footage of an actual kidnapping taking place. This sparked a wave of violence in the developing country, where many users are new to the informationally hazardous world of social media. When the YouTube representative spoke to BuzzFeed, they used a screenshot of an information panel written in Hindi, demonstrating how the program works. This information panel debunked the fake news that an attack took place against Indian paramilitary troops. The footage in question was actually an explosion in Syria.

The threat of fake news is also especially potent because of the upcoming national elections in India this Spring, something which multiple big tech companies have allied to combat. Facebook India News Partnership head Manish Khanduri commented that they “now have seven partners across the country covering six languages, who will review and rate the accuracy of stories on Facebook.”'

I do not think any of us are surprised by this.

YouTube says it'll ban accounts that promote Nazism or deny Sandy Hook massacre

https://cnn.com/2019/06/05/tech/youtube-nazi-ban/index.html

YouTube says it will ban supremacist content and remove videos that deny well-documented atrocities, like the Holocaust and the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school. The company says it will be removing hundreds of thousands of videos that hadn't previously been considered in violation of its rules.

The move comes as the the video service, owned by Google, faces increasing scrutiny for hosting extreme and divisive content.
In a blog post Wednesday, YouTube said it was prohibiting "videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status."

No one wins this. Only those in control. And do not fall for the "public forum/public service" bullshit which is an even bigger trap. It's past time to move on from themtube. It'll go the way of myspace and yahoo and things of that sort. No one is forcing anyone to type in certain url addresses in their bar.

BitChute seems to be the best alternative at the moment. And stay away from Mike Adams. Just ask Healthwyze
