YouTube Announces It Will No Longer Recommend Conspiracy Videos
nbcchicago.com | February 10, 2019 06:47 PM

YouTube has announced that it will no longer recommend videos that "come close to" violating its community guidelines, such as conspiracy or medically inaccurate videos.

On Saturday, a former engineer for Google, YouTube's parent company, hailed the move as a "historic victory," NBC News reported.

The original blog post from YouTube, published on Jan. 25, said that videos the site recommends, usually after a user has viewed one video, would no longer lead just to similar videos and instead would "pull in recommendations from a wider set of topics."

YouTube said in the post that the action is meant to "reduce the spread of content that comes close to ? but doesn?t quite cross the line of ? violating" its community policies. The examples the company cited include "promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11."

              Just another example of "Censorship" which is being leveled on several fronts.  Like the 60's Outer Limits they will, "control the horizontal and the vertical".

Censorship??   Surely you must be kidding....  Don't you know the constitution?   Or that fine anthem we sing that tells us we live in the "land of the free"

Conspiracy ?theory? is anti-intellectual.  Good move.

Last night on CNN's 'Facebook At 15' program host Laurie Segall said Zuckerberg allowed Russian spies and "Conspiracy Theorists" to manipulate Facebook...The term "Conspiracy Theorists" was used in a way that accented them as being a criminal, subversive threat...

This is it people...Under this idiot trump who suckered people into believing he opposed this type of fascist government/corporate corruption they are now making their move and going for the censorship they've been planning ever since the people found a new venue for free speech on the internet...Americans are so dumb they probably won't even notice the difference...

Jingos and automatic government-backers always cheer on censorship...No problem if it is the destruction of American Constitutional rights...

                 This is a continued and escalating effort aimed at the 2020 Pres. Election. Pres. Trump used social media to get around the choke hold the Propaganda Arm has held on the flow of information dating back to FDR.

Constitutional rights versus the betterment of society. I shudder to think of people seeking medical advice from ?experts? on YouTube and elsewhere.
