Google is going to ensure that the only videos that will ever be allowed to play on YouTube will be cute kitten videos. This move into censoring anything that misleads or manipulates users and equating that with harassment and harming others is also serving as cover for them to censor politically incorrect videos.
Sometimes, YouTube will not censor the video, it just won’t allow users to find them when they search for them. Essentially they will delist the video by not allowing people to find it and say that they aren’t “censoring-censoring” people.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Susan Wojcicki said some users were exploiting YouTube to “mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm”.
She said the website, owned by Google, had used “computer-learning” technology that could find extremist videos.
More than 150,000 of these videos have been removed since June, she said.
In March, the UK government suspended its adverts from YouTube, following concerns they were appearing next to inappropriate content.
Ms Wojcicki said that staff had reviewed nearly two million videos for violent extremist content since June.
This is helping to train the company’s machine learning technology to identify similar videos, which is enabling staff to remove nearly five times as many videos as they were previously, she said.
She said the company was taking “aggressive action” on comments, using technology to help staff find and shut down hundreds of accounts and hundreds of thousands of comments.
Not even commenting is safe. YouTube is already banning conservative accounts in rates not seen before, so why not move to do it with comments? Especially when you can point to terrorists you’re banning with them, because after all, aren’t conservatives really just like the terrorists anyway?
Google announced that it was working with anticonservative groups like the Anti-Defamation League and the No Hate Speech Movement to censor users and accounts.
Google has also been taking even more drastic action against videos that have been flagged by the leftist hordes that use YouTube that violate its policies on hate speech, but are not terrorist activities or illegal.
As was said previously, the only end point for this is a heavily censored YouTube with the only allowed videos being ones made with cute kittens.
