YouTube just announced a new policy to control videos that are not violating any of its policies but contains offensive religious and supremacist content.This was announced on the official YouTube blog :
‘We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes. We’ll begin to roll this new treatment out to videos on desktop versions of YouTube in the coming weeks, and will bring it to mobile experiences soon thereafter.’
This could be part of the liberal media agenda against religion as YouTube becomes more influenced by leftist ideology.However, the world is watching exactly how YouTube will enforce this new policy without inciting it’s large group of religious viewers.
