YouTube Hires 10,000 Staff To Weed Out 'Extremist' Content

Tyler Durden's picture

Google has announced the latest escalation in its battle to censor “extremist” content on its platforms, a covert campaign to censor conservative voices.

The company plans to hire 10,000 staffers whose sole jobs will be tracking down extremist content that might violate Youtube’s terms of service, according to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki.

Wojcicki said that "bad actors" had used the video-sharing site to "mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm" others.

Per the Hill, the announcement comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May pressured social media companies to remove radical content after a series of deadly terror-related attacks this year in the United Kingdom.

"The tech companies have made significant progress on this issue, but we need to go further and faster to reduce the time it takes to reduce terrorist content online," May said in a speech to the United Nations in October, according to reports.

But anybody hired to scour Google’s platforms for extremist content and posts planted by Russian bots shouldn’t count on being in the job for long. Google is presently developing an algorithm to automate most of the job.

Wojcicki said they have developed a "computer-learning" technology that helps them to quickly identify and then remove radical content on a site that has hundreds of minutes of video uploaded each minute, according to the report.

 

The technology can be used to weed out other inappropriate videos, including ones that contain inappropriate or exploitive content involving children, which YouTube has also been trying to weed out.

 

YouTube, Twitter and Facebook have all faced calls to increase their oversight on possible extremist content.

Back in August, YouTube announced it would be taking steps to censor content they found to be "controversial" even if it didn't break any laws or violate the site's user agreement. And while the message vowed to be part of an effort to "fight terror content online," the move was met wth widespread skepticism among YouTuber's as nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to censor conservative speech.

 

 

YouTube’s “punishment” for users who express purportedly controversial conservative views is to economically punish the content creator by “demonetizing” their content by labeling it “not suitable for all advertisers.” The site even censored former Congressman Ron Paul when he spoke out about the Trump administration's plans to increase the troop levels in Afghanistan, a decision that had been celebrated as "presidential" by both the left and the right.

Well done YouTube. If I cannot read those comments then they also do not exist.

Ten thousand?  Hired on a whim?  Just like that?  Who is paying for that ten thousand?  Will we notice it in their income statements?  Coming to think of it, who paid for all that Google-Mapping stuff?

Really?  They can afford 10 000 for propaganda but they can't afford 10 000 for anything decent???

Or is that why certain charities were giving laptops to third world countries a few years ago?

Don't worry. ISIS head-chopping videos will still be able to get through the censorship becoz Diversity and You're Racist.

... and when ZH gets banned, suddenly I will have shitloads of free time.  For that reason I don't think they will ever censor ZH.  It is safer for them to leave me here.

10,000 hires, huh?  Those are gonna be quality hires, no doubt.  Always fun to watch a company spend money to blow up its own biz.......

Should be even more fun to watch Google define what is offensive or misleading-  prolly follow the same book that the Nazis did when they hired guys to run the gas chambers- gotta be an awesome flow chart.......

SmackDaddy's picture

You should really read into the details of the hollowco$t tale.......

As the story goes, it was the jews themselves who tended the the "gas chambers" and "ovens".  They were known as "kapos" and "sonderkommandos".

Lovely, selfless people those Jews with such vivid imaginations.

Soo, all the muslum extremist crap is good to go. No Joo's involved. No terroristic content, facebook has the same behavior.

My response: We need to define what is meant by the word 'Extremist'!!! For example, is an extremist your neighbor who is a moral person who believes in the sanctity of life?

DEEP STATE is pulling out all the stops. This YT process has been going on for awhile now and looks to be ramping up. I wonder if this will apply to gmail as well?

My only concern: WORLDVIEW of those making decisions are slanted toward MARXIST PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL worldview under DEMONIC control. The GOOLAG has demonstrated that it is not a MORAL organization concerned with the honest application of FAIRNESS and JUSTICE.

We live in a BRAVE NEW WORLD. Welcome to 1984!!!

Gmail already censored and being blocked.

Discovered that 12 months ago.

A few questions, entity GUS

The words not in bold & not followed by exclamations- are we supposed to read those too?

Can you show the algebra behind the derivation of marixist = progressive = liberal?

Demons & their control- is it direct, you know, with the hooves, etc. Or just proxy, by possession?

Does Langley let you post from home in the early AM? Or do you have to sit at your cubicle?

Extremist = whoever the joos don't like. Usually just white Christians.

"JooTube is desperate to silence the goy..."  This is undeniably true.  I have been observing first hand the demonitizing, "warnings", blackout, and disapearances of videos and posters that are critical of the jew matrix.

10,000 people at $150K a year with bennies, that's $1.5B.  I doubt YouTube would do that unless the Feds or Soros were paying them back.

New "Work For The Dole" scheme.  "Delete all that libertarian crap or no SNAP cards for you!!!"

When everyone is poor, it is those who are a little less poor or a little more confident that are being paid to spy on the rest.  Either that or they are the cannibals.

$150K per year?  In this economy?  Who are you kidding?
They can staff it up with part time post-collegiate liberal arts SJWs working from mom's basement for minimum wage.

And think of the internship possibilities.
"I interned at Google/Youtube" will dress up some inexperienced kid's resume.

While I have neither the time nor interest to keep firm track of lesser ZH entities like yourslf & WTFRLY, I find one thing intetresting

That for a relatively new article/comment, your post almost immediately attracts a number of downvotes- basically for contravening WTFRLY's "Joo post"

Which suggests to me a small cadre of spook provacateurs encamped here to blackwash this site with 'anti-Joo' noise. Controlled opposition.

Ex-Oligarch's picture

Exactly.  These guys are trying to give ZH a rep as a haven for racist lunatics to marginalize the site's reporting.
Look what they did to the public image of the "alt-right" movement:  from edgy, independent-minded outsiders to drooling neo-nazis in a matter of months.

ZeroHedge should hire at least one, if not more, editors to remove comments which are simply expressions of bias or prejudice or ad hominem.

This is a great opportunity for someone to pick up the gauntlet and set up a new video sharing website, which promotes freedom of speech.
The Youtubers which are already getting demonetized will have no problem emigrating to the new platform, since they have nothing to lose, and the freedom loving public will follow suit. Lets teach those tech giants a lesson in the wonders of competition in a free market.

Hey, I remember them - that's the band of Puerto Rican Satanic Kosher Trannys right?

They, Molly Hatchet, & Cheap Trick were all the rage back in the day.

Trannys, Beer Guzzling Red Necks, & Fems; ah, the 70s.

May's first instinct is to censor anything she does not like. As Home Secretary, she proposed a widespread censorship of the internet to put an end to ideas that she disliked. Surprise. Surprise. It failed. But statists never learn.

"British PM Theresa May Pedophile Ring Cover-up Exposed

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s connections to a serial killer and an Elite pedophile ring have been revealed after a sloppy cover-up has backfired. The PM has caused a lot of controversies in relation to pedophilia during her career, most notably, as her time as Home Secretary, she pushed for a change in legislation that would give more leniency to sex offenders. She backed a claim that pedophiles should be allowed to adopt children because it was “unfair” to stop them and a “breach of their human rights”. One of the arguments for the change in the law was that although pedophile crimes were on the rise, the number of pedophiles that also murder children was “still quite low”.Now, it appears, that May, or her people, have been covering up her family history, by removing any mention of her father from the internet…….Read More"

Interesting how YouTube can describe content as “offensive” and “radical”, yet not provide any reasonable explanation as to what exacty wtf that is.

Almost like they have a political agenda? s/

I think any of Silicon Valley's use of "offensive" or "radical" is anything a WHITE MAN thinks or believes...or TRUMP

anything skype wise, esp holycost analysis, is offensive/radical
