Today, Google announced in a blog
post
that it is updating YouTube’s community guidelines. The move will
further reduce the presence of supremacist and hateful content on YouTube’s
platform.

“It’s clear Google has listened to concerns from Congress
and the public about harmful content and the role of content moderation,” said
Carl Szabo, VP and General Counsel at NetChoice.

“Google rightly met with voices from across the political
spectrum to craft these fair and effective rules.”

“We should all celebrate Google’s move to increase
transparency and make YouTube better for its users and advertisers,” continued
Szabo. “Google is ensuring that YouTube prevents the spread of cruelty online –
regardless of political affiliation.”
