Breitbart: YouTube Doubles Down — Will Censor Recommended Videos to Stop ‘Misinformation’

“Just a week after Breitbart News exclusively published internal discussions showing YouTube routinely intervenes in its search results to promote establishment news sources (including in searches for “abortion”), the Google-owned video platform is doubling down on search censorship.

YouTube announced Friday that it will intervene in recommended videos — the content that is recommended to viewers of a video on the right-hand sidebar. Previously a mix of content tailored to users’ viewing history, YouTube says it will now intervene to remove “content that could misinform users in harmful ways” from recommendations.”
