YouTube’s new rules on hate speech & harmful misinformation

YouTube has unveiled new policies to curb hate speech, extremist views, and false content on its platform amid mounting criticism over its handling of potentially harmful videos.

In a blog post published Wednesday, the firm said it will be taking further steps to eliminate videos that promote violence and extremism, such as Nazi glorification and white supremacy.

It will also remove hoax videos that attempt to debunk known tragedies, like the Sandy Hook shooting and the Holocaust.

The action is expected to result in the removal of thousands of channels and videos that violate its newly established policies around supremacist content.
