YouTube is demonetising anti-vaccination videos

The You Tube video app is seen on various digital devices

A YouTube spokesperson told AdWeek, "Any content-including comments-that endangers minors is abhorrent, and we have clear policies prohibiting this on YouTube".

Parents remain concerned about safety both on YouTube and YouTube Kids.

And these videos featured pre-roll ads from companies like Peleton, Maybelline, and L'Oreal, just to name a few, and all of whom were alerted by Wired at the publishing of their piece, as most companies purchase YouTube ads across the entire platform and rely on YouTube's algorithm for placement.

Watson's video shows that YouTube's comments section, when it comes to giving child predators a forum in which they can indulge their predilections, goes beyond vile and into the realm of unsafe. The Google-owned site had found itself under fire once again after thousands of predatory and grotesque comments were discovered below otherwise-innocent videos of children. And it doesn't just recommend more of these videos with kids just being kids, they're recommending the videos that are popular with pedophiles. "We are always working to improve our systems and to remove violative content more quickly, which is why we report our progress in a quarterly report and give users a dashboard showing the status of videos they've flagged to us".

Alabama woman who joined ISIS can’t return home, Pompeo says
In a series of interviews this week from a sprawling camp in northern Syria with her infant son, she expressed deep remorse. Shibly said Muthana was brainwashed online before she left Alabama and now could have valuable intelligence for USA forces.

Buzzfeed News on Friday reported the existence of videos on the platform Friday which violate its terms of use, and said that some advertisers had objected to YouTube and pulled their adverts after finding them running on anti-vaccination videos.

The issue hits two ongoing pain points for YouTube: Its role in amplifying conspiracy-mongers and concerns among marketers about the "brand safety" of the platform. August Oetker KG also said they had postponed YouTube spending after their ads were shown to play before the videos.

Last April, advertisers also fled when ads for more than 300 companies including Amazon, Netflix, and Adidas ran alongside videos pushing extremist ideologies. "We also need to fight to have the developers of social media platforms held responsible when they do not assure that age restriction are followed and when they do not remove inappropriate and/or risky material when reported".

She said that the company took "immediate action" by deleting over 400 YouTube channels because of comments that they'd left on videos. Even when brands have kept off YouTube for a significant amount of time, they haven't stopped paying Google to spread their message on search results and through display ads across the web.

Despite being criticized by the majority of the creators, some came out in the defense of YouTube.
