22, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Susan Wojcicki, YouTube CEO, has announced that any content in conflict with the World Organization health (WHO) about the coronavirus It will be removed from the video platform.
In an interview with CNN last Sunday, Wojcicki explained that “there has been a 75% increase in information from reliable sources since the start of 2020. So we have seen strong demand there.”
“But then we also talk about removing the problematic information,” she added. “Of course everything medically unfounded. So people who say, like, take vitamin C, you know, take turmeric, like these – will cure you. These are examples of things that could violate our policy. “
Then she said, “Anything that conflicts with WHO recommendations would be a violation of our policy. Therefore, withdrawal is another really important part of our policy. ”
An example of content removed from YouTube, said Wojcicki, is the claim that the fifth generation of the new generation of wireless communications technology “is causing symptoms of coronavirus”.
Senator Marsha Blackburn tweeted, “This is alarming because [YouTube] is now relying on biased recommendations [from the WHO] to determine which video content to delete.” “The senator is still laughing at Chinese propaganda, and President Donald Trump’s travel ban to China has been fought,” said the Tennessee statesman.
“If the big tech companies plan to give a police speech on COVID-19, they must rely on honest and objective experts. History repeats itself and [WHO] has proven to be an unworthy promoter of Chinese advertising trust. “
