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.
Don’t worry y’all. I’m sure this will be evenly applied across all political spectrums and ideologies and totally not be used for political purposes.
Nothing to worry about.
