YouTube to expand crackdown on material contesting official vaccine narratives

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“YouTube is to remove videos that spread misinformation [sic] about all vaccines, as it steps up a crackdown on harmful [sic] content posted during the coronavirus pandemic. From Wednesday, the video streaming site, which has already banned Covid jab falsehoods [sic], will take down content that claims any approved vaccine is dangerous and causes chronic health defects. Under previous guidelines, the platform demoted — effectively hiding from view — videos that spread misinformation [sic] about non-Covid vaccines or promoted vaccine hesitancy.” (09/29/21)
