Pewds is spiraling down into minecraft-induced insanity.
We’ve previously reported that YouTube was under assault by the mainstream media (and more specifically, the Wall Street Journal) because of some nonsense about ads appearing on terrorist/Nazi videos.
While YouTube has no real immediate financial incentive to cave in to these advertisers (as they have essentially all the leverage), they’ve opted to attack their content creators anyway.
The reason for this is probably that Google is run by dirty Kikes who don’t mind sabotaging their own company if they can push their agenda in the process.
YouTube is taking measures to help ensure its user-generated content doesn’t end up positioning ads by big brands next to questionable content. The social network will not allow ads on channels that have fewer than 10,000 views total, across all their posted videos. YouTube told the Wall Street Journal that the measure has been in development since November, and that it’s intended to block channels which steal content from other sources from deriving revenue from the platform.
YouTube is facing a significant backlash for displaying ads from partners against video containing racist and otherwise objectionable content. Google apologized for the mistake, and adapted its policies, but some major brands, including Coca-Cola, PepsiCo (which is rich considering its subsequent Kendall Jenner snafu) and Walmart pulled advertising other than targeted search following reports of the ads being displayed against unsavory content by the WSJ.
Previously, YouTube has made participation in its advertising program relatively easy: account owners can apply to run ads next to their videos and it turned out there was very little in the way of barriers to getting approved. YouTube’s system also automatically placed ads against content using algorithmic methods, meaning preventing this kind of thing on a case-by-case basis is a relatively difficult, if not impossible.
As PewDiePie said, YouTube has about 9 billion videos.
There’s no way they can sort through them all. By removing all channels smaller than 10,000 views from monetization, they’ve only put a small dent in their little problem. Ultimately, there’s only going to be two ways they can implement their politically correct ideal.
First, they can manually whitelist which videos are eligible. This would mean that that 99.99999% of their content would not have ads, and would thus reduce their revenue dramatically.
The other possibility is to use an AI system to cope with the problem.
I think we all know where that leads, don’t we?
