Contents Linked To Manipulation Of Election To Be Banned By YouTube

YouTube made a declaration on Monday that Election-related  videos that are “Manipulated or Doctored” to mislead voters in the latest effort to stem online misfortune will be Removed.

The Google-owned video service said it was taking the measures as part of an effort to be a “more reliable source” for news and to promote a “healthy political discourse.”

Leslie Miller, YouTube’s vice president of government affairs and public policy, said in a blog post that the service’s community standards will ban “content that has been technically manipulated or doctored in a way that misleads users … and may pose a serious risk of egregious harm.”

The policy also bans content which aims to mislead people about voting or the census processes.
