YouTube Says It Will Ban Misleading Election-Related Content ND


Davey Alba, The New York Times, Monday February 3, 2020

YouTube outlined its full plan on the day of the Iowa caucuses, where voters will select their preferred Democratic presidential candidate for the first time in 2020. In a blog post, YouTube said it would ban videos that gave users the wrong voting date or spread other false information during the election campaign. This move is the latest attempt by a large tech company to grapple with online disinformation, after Facebook said it would remove videos that were altered by artificial intelligence and Twitter has banned political ads entirely. Leslie Miller, YouTube’s vice president of government affairs and public affairs said: “Over the last few years, we’ve increased our efforts to make YouTube a more reliable source for news and information, as well as an open platform for healthy political discourse.”
