Back in the day, you’d only find people claiming the Earth is flat or that fluoride in the water supply is dangerous at the farthest flung reaches of the internet. But then YouTube started offering it up. Now noting that some such content may violate their community guidelines, the video publishing site says they will no longer put similar ones in their recommendations.
YouTube admitted in a recent blog post that they want to cut back on conspiracy or medically inaccurate videos and straight up fake news. The videos will not be removed from the site, just taken out of the suggestions from unrelated content.
