Youtube removes a million videos over misinformation
According to a blog post by Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan, YouTube has removed over a million videos related to dangerous coronavirus information, such as false cures or claims of a hoax, since February 2020 as part of its broader efforts to combat misinformation on the platform.
YouTube claims that more than 500 hours of content are uploaded to its platform every minute, but it doesn't say how much time is split between how many videos or how many COVID-19-related videos are available.
YouTube isn't the only company dealing with this issue. Google, Facebook, and Twitter had to figure out how to handle misinformation about COVID-19, the US presidential election, and other topics after receiving widespread criticism.
