Youtube löscht Holocaust-Leugnung und Nazis, demonitarisiert Rightwing-Latenighter

Youtube entfernt endlich extremistische Videos, Clips die den Holocaust leugnen und Verschwörungstheorien um Gewaltakte wie Terroranschläge oder Amokläufe: „YouTube announced plans on Wednesday to remove thousands of videos and channels that advocate neo-Nazism, white supremacy and other bigoted ideologies in an attempt to clean up extremism and hate speech on its popular service. The new policy will ban ‘videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion’, the company said in a blog post. The prohibition will also cover videos denying that violent events, like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, took place.“

Gleichzeitig haben sie den Channel des Rightwing-Latenighters Steven Crowder demonetarisiert. Mit dieser Lösung in der Sache Maza/Crowler kann ich gut leben: „After nearly a week of sustained controversy, YouTube announced Wednesday that the platform will demonetize the channel of one of its most popular right-wing users due to ‘continued egregious actions’ after his harassment of a gay journalist in his videos was called out. […] However, YouTube will not be removing Crowder’s channel from the platform, spokespeople told VICE in an email.“
