More contextualization to refute hoaxes and less Phone Number List content removal In view of the very serious misinformation problem that YouTube has, the verifiers ask Susan Wojcicki, executive director of the company, to act urgently to "improve the information Phone Number List ecosystem" of the platform. While Google's parent company has already taken action against "fake news" (banning videos that promote anti-scientific content or depriving climate change deniers of ad Phone Number List revenue , for example), fact-checking organizations warn that. Many channels that spread hoaxes are still active today Phone Number List and they do so escaping the controls of YouTube. In this sense, the measures adopted so far by YouTube "are not working" and "no quality data has been published to support their Phone Number List effectiveness," say the verifiers. YouTube, say the organizations that sign the epistle, has limited itself to removing content instead of providing context with verified information to refute hoaxes , a method that, according to Phone Number List several academic studies, is the most effective in curbing disinformation. "That alternative also preserves freedom of expression Phone Number List while recognizing that providing that additional information can mitigate risks to life, health, security, and democratic processes," the fact-checkers insist. The platform should, therefore, bet more on Phone Number List contextualization and not so much on the mere elimination of videos and raise the flag of Phone Number List transparency with regard to the "fake news" that circulates on its platforms and the measures to stop it.
