YouTube will remove videos that encourage election meddling

YouTube announced that it’ll remove videos that encourage others to interfere with the election process in the US. For instance, if a video includes hacked information about a candidate, YouTube will take it down.

YouTube announced the measures ahead of the Democratic and Republican national conventions, both of which will be livestreamed on the platform.

YouTube’s parent company, Google, said last month it’d ban ads that include information from hacks too.

Google, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Microsoft and the Wikimedia Foundation have met with government agencies for talks about securing the presidential election. They discussed “preparations for the upcoming conventions and scenario planning related to election results.”
