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

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.

Take notice they have ONE common lowest denominator...
They're all owned by communist kikes

That should tell you something.

mobros don't like jews do they WTFRLY, err horseman, they've made a centuries old scapegoat for their own maladies, huh?

Fourth Horseman's picture

You must be a kike instigator in here.

Note to the libtard, one doesn't have to be a sandnigger to know the kikes M.O.

One only has to know history

house biscuit's picture

Sure....because an instigator would never resort to emphasizing terms like 'kike', 'libtard' & 'sandnigger'

You know, I expect infitration of the site. I just wish they'd budget for better quality.....

Another popular platform that sounds like it will be ruined by growing bias and censorship.

It's a shame but maybe it's time people looked else where to voice free speech opinion.

Jewtube moves to banish all anti-commie, anti-libtard, and anti-snowflake facts and truth.

that you WTFRLY, or is your mosque chiming in?

No, actually i'm a WASP who just so happens to also be ex-mil and agnostic. Have any other weak comments ya fuckin libtard commie?

"including ones that contain inappropriate or exploitive content involving children, which YouTube has also been trying to weed out."

 

Yes, anything that sheds light into pedo-psychopathic satanic scum at the top of the smelly heap of "world goverment" should not be heard. Funny how this whole "controlling the content AND russiagate" started nearly year ago with Pizza emails, which I still haven't found *debunked*. Reddit did it too so they moved to voat...

 

A LOT of effort for something outrageously conspiracy-theorish which is easily debunked.

 

Now, how about some sauce on pasta with domino, oh, and I forgot handkerchief...

can't make a buck in the market until this day, yet hires 10k to watch videos on their own platform.

Genius!

Think a little further down the line: Let's say after one year they weeded out the "extremists", and new "extremists" won't bother to upload anything. What will those 10k do then? Going back to serving coffee? Of course not - they'll find new "extremists" to justify their jobs. It's like antifa - the longer the Reich is dead, the more nazis they seem to find and fight.

Goodbye, ytube - it was nice while it lasted.

I would observe google software products are controlled by the corrupt establishment for exploitation purpose.

Lol... "extremist content" in English is what they mean... unless they intend to hire 10,000 Arabic-speakers.  The Muslim terrorists do not produce much "extremist content" in English, I do not suspect.

I have a piece of advice to all of my conservative friends in the English-speaking world.  Learn Spanish.  They cannot censor you if they do not understand what you are saying.

There are some really great pussy waxing videos on jewtube.

calm down WTFRLY, we get your hatred.  how many times must you repeat the same, on most every article posted????

Don't worry, it's a libtard that enjoys kosher cock that snuck in the back door to instigate.

Why would Google take on the overhead of 10,000 additional watchers?  

They must be under intense pressure from the globalists.

MAGA job creation.
Bigly.

Shay216420's picture

Those 10,000 will not be there long, because the nice people at google are developing an algorithm to weed out the content.

"mislead, manipulate, harass or even harm" others.

What a joke. It’s called censorship, and violates the First Amendment...sue the assholes.

How bout we demonetize and defund Google & YouTube from DAPRA and the DOD....after all, we’re paying for it.

According to their defination of 'extremist' I honestly think at least 33% of ZH articles could be described as such.

Can you imagine what the world would be like if the hag had won over the great man Trump? They'd be gunning for at least half the internet. 

house biscuit's picture

Funny you put it that way, since 'they' already seem to have majority control of the net, despite our Lord of Orange.....

.....it's amost as if........it doesn't matter who reads the teleprompter......

TPTB & their DARPA scienticians took a smart risk by releasing the internet

Similar to the printing press before it, the net is an unrivaled propaganda tool, requiring only the same centralization & control that took place for printed media

I would appreciate it if Youtube would put in half as much effort to weed out the fuckers who put out videos aimed at children attempting to corrupt them with foul language, sexual innuendo and obscene behaviour.  But wait.  That's the left's job isn't it?

Trump should declare Youtube, Facebook, Twitter as the same as open space where Freedom of speech prevails and censorship banned - and let it be fought all the way to the Supreme Court.

Deep state has consolidated information grab by using outlets/technologies like YT/Google and now they are confidant they can do whatever they want.It's not pretty for everyday conscious people, fortunately, some have felt the bogus censorship introduced these days and demonetizations et el.

Its expected uncle scam would do this to ramp up the totalitarian grid system sad fact is that we are still jacked in such system.

Alternatives lot of them may slow this.

Google is the biggest fraud on the world. Their search algos were never good and they have always hired people to do the work it is just now everyone is starting to realize what Google has done to them and the economy.

Google is 100% responsible for the destruction of small business in the U.S.  They have been censoring conservative businesses for the last 20 years and have been using people not algos to determine search results since its inception. Try getting on page one for more than a few months if you live in a blue state or opened you mouth and supported a conservative cause.

Here is another fact, 90% of Amazon's success comes from independent vendors who had to sell on Amazon because the Amazon search engine searches mostly on merit and not political affiliation. If Google were not crooked and against free speech, Amazon would not exist as there would be no reason to pay Amazon a commission for access to its search engine results.

But overall they are not our biggest threat.

It is the inability of the conservative commentators to come together and make an alternative and drive Google out of business. Jones, Bannon, Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage et al could easily ban together and start their own search engine based on free speech and put Google down (and all the rest including Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon). But they are too busy bloviating and complaining and using Google censorship to rally the masses. If they did something about it they would not be able to sell their crap.

And we learned this because we put up a new site which was headquarted in Silicon Valley and it has since day one placed on the first page of Google while the sites we have based in Texas, and the conservative part of Virginia have been buried on page 50. Yet they all sell the same things.

Arnold's picture

However tech savvy those guys and their teams seem to be, they are entertainment.
They sell a product, based on customer reaction.
I don't want them any where near my information searches,and the same goes for the skizzy left.

Even Encyclopedia Britannica, the go to reference of my youth, showed its' bias, being empire centric.

Bias in information flow will never be eliminated, just recognize it and work around it to become informed or confirm a your own biases.

Looks like that major in Womens' Rights with a minor in Gender Identity Studies will finally pay off!

At least until a small shell-script replaces those 10k jobs.

The scum at YT are quite happy to host pedo content tho...go figure.

Any christian church teaches children about submissive sex, claiming the gestures are prayer.  Folding hands is symbol for oral sex. Kneeling trains child to service authority with sex. Christians and pedophiles are same people

Just want to jump in the pit here and say, Quo warranto?

Punctuated equilibrium is a thesis, a theory, of evolution. Now it's any 101 anthropology course type shit.

You can spare me the Leaky, Lucy bullshit. Now contrary to Youtube, naturally, anything outside the pervue of the controllosphere eye of horus beligerant freedom of speech oppressing whores ten thousand strong wouldn't know what extreme is and can't contain it.

Let's imagine for a moment what some dumb fuck you tube cencor is. It's not creative, it's told. It obeys. It can't do what one AI can do. It's a write off. It creates more entropy than it solves. It's a whore of babylon. It's a sea of hate.

There aren't ten thousand people on this earth that know or have been where I have been. And I'm not all that. Hiring ten thousand dipshit losers for christmas to get fired is a dick move.

I'll have you know that according to the complete asshole theory human beings evolved from the cusp, the farthest reaches of security. Human beings did not come from the bossom of ten thousand cencors on youtube. Humans are chthonic, autochthonic, God made, free will, bad asses. Science cannot explain us and Youtube definitely is gonna hit the shitter like myspace. That's evolution. Hire 100 thousand. Hire a million dumb fucks. Who cares? Youtube doesn't know what "extemist" even means. Say hello to the octopus. Figure that shit out. Fuck off.

lol  I call out Stefan Molyneux, for not addressing no Jewish questions, or issues and the fucking cunt gets my posts removed. I can talk about niggers and spics, but Jews are simply off limit.

Molyneux is controlled opposition and knowingly doing so. Who the fuck are globalists? To him it just means Soros and Molyneux and Paul Joseph Watson won't go any further in their analysis.

Given Watsons undoubted intellect and research skills. Jewish questions and issues is the glaring omission from his depictions of world affairs and events. YOUTUBE already censors any disparaging remark about either of them not tackling Jewish questions. Censorship has been going on for years on YOUTUBE and its more perverse, targeted and subtle than people think. 

MATA HAIRY's picture

no, he is just old enough and educated enough to know that the problem is not just jews, but all elites

Kretenoid's picture

All of the most renown alternative media on N00b-Lube are cucks .

Starting with the likes of Molyneux , Alex "CaveMan" Jones going trough Paul Joseph Watson and ending up right on Sargon Of Akkad .

 

All of them tip-toe around the real issue .

The Supplement salesman was asked (very very politely) by a listener on a call about 2-3 years ago to watch the series "The Greatest Story Never Told" - guess what - he cut the caller and left it there .

As things go , I am afraid the only place where the likes of you and me will be able to get unfiltered news will be the deep web - everything else is controlled and/or censored beyond belief .

If you want truth for now and later; read and understand the Word of God.  If you desire to understand who is telling the truth in our little world, then filter it through the Word of Truth...it works.

house biscuit's picture

Let me give you a tip

If you intend to misdirect, never, ever, use Paul Joseph "Lips" Watson & the word 'intellect' in the same sentence

There's more you need to learn, but start with that one. Think about it

OCnStiggs's picture

The inability to understand and communicate using logic is a common trait of Soros drones.

Molyneux is a self righteous fool headed for hell.  Reminds me of the Young Turks on the other side of the Isle; both have this in common - full of self.

Do you own any SMART devices or anyone in your immediate family?  If so, you are feeding the beast.  Do you drive a car or shop at Walmart, Home Depot, AMAZON et al?  Then you are feeding the beast.  Is your internet service through Comcast, TWC or the like?  You are feeding the beast.

We all are to one degree or another; it is called living.  Feed the soul and the rest is history.
