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.

It’s turning into FuckYouTube.

Alternative platforms are needed.

Back in the old days, content hosts like Youtube used to argue that they should have no legal (or ethical) responsibility for user-posted material, because pollicing that material would require an army of thousands of employees that they could never afford to hire.  Years were spent wrestling over copyright-infringing content, privacy-invading content, threatening content, violent content, defamatory content, and on and on.  They would up with a system of payoffs to the biggest copyright holders, complaint-based takedowns, supplemented by automation.

But now, they are willing to hire an army of thousands of employees to police political content?

When YouTube is another MySpace, they can look back and see this was the beginning of the end.

Social media is owned by the US government and managed by Zuckerberg, et al. The Elites are using it to control the ignorant masses. Run from it.

Are you sure that those 10000, aren`t U.S. government employees, working for a government agency?.......

The elite wanted control of the Internet as it has become a liability, making their shenanigans harder to conceal and allows other voices to be heard, making the elite's lies harder to pass off...

So the elite import tens of thousands of unvetted people from the third world, many of whom do not even know how to use a toilet, to foment unrest and terrorism.

Violence erupts from the clash of cultures.

The elite offer that if only they could censor the Internet the violence would cease...

Google, fb, yahoo, etc are all gov controlled and owned sites. They want to control every little aspect of your life even what you think, see, and feel. Other sites can pop up but it will only be a matter of time before they are controlled also. Idiots throughout the usa  and the world think complaining and bitching is going to do anything "if protesting and complaining did anything you would have seen a change by now".  Change can only be physical. Thinking that complaining to "people" that are pure evil is just insane and not logical. The only way your change can happen is if you grow a pair and physically eliminate the problem. 

These people poison you, rob you, brainwash your kids and you, murder you with chemicals from the food to the air, they feel that they own you, force you to slave in there system, make trillions off of your strawman and extortion. 

For people to sit back and let it happen makes you no better then the ones behind it.

 

 

Behold, I seen a pale horse and he that sit upon him was called death.

YOUTUBE: 

That wonderful website where you can find explicit offensive language, explicit violence, explicit nudity & sex, explicit misogyny, explicit pro Globalism, explicit LGBT agenda, endless amount of trash & stupid information, BUT if I post a video saying "Fuck the Government" with full supported arguments & facts, I'd be labeled as "Extremist".....

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Wikipedia  https://en.wikipedia.or/wiki/Quis_custodiet_ipsos_custodes%3F

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? is a Latin phrase found in the work of the Roman poet Juvenal from his Satires (Satire VI, lines 347–348). It is literally translated as "Who will guard the guards themselves?", though it is also known by variant translations.


Head over to MediaDon'tMatters for your share of outrageous abuse.

Nobody doing anything about this type of behaviour on this site.

Yawn...
