More than one month after the 2020 Election, YouTube has announced it will now remove misleading videos that claim fraud or errors changed the real outcome of the presidential race.
Google-owned YouTube announced that it would begin enforcing against this content on Wednesday, citing Tuesday’s safe harbor deadline for the US election, the date after which the election can no longer be challenged.
- YouTube says it will take down videos that claim Biden won due to widespread software glitches or errors in counting votes.
- It will still allow videos including news coverage and commentary to remain on the platform if they have enough context.
- Videos posted prior to Wednesday’s proclamation that violate the new policy will remain up, but will feature an information panel saying that the election has been certified.
