Youtube is Struggling to End its FAKE-NEWS CRISIS: System Misfires, False Positives and Shooting

... In recent months, despite taking what Wojcicki has called “aggressive action” to weed out the same issue on YouTube, announcing plans to hire more than 10,000 people to screen for “problematic content” and launching new comment-moderation tools, this week the site yet again morphed into a hub for conspiracy theories, this time based around the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Ex-recruiter's lawsuit alleges hiring bias at YouTube

... It's clear that the company will defend itself against Wilberg's charges. "We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity," a Google spokesperson said in a statement, "at the same time, we unapologetically try to find a diverse pool of qualified candidates for open roles, as this helps us hire the best people, improve our culture, and build better products."

... On Tuesday night, a law-enforcement official identified the shooter as Nasim Aghdam, of Menefee, a town in Southern California. Though her motive is still under investigation, Aghdam, whom her father described as a “vegan activist,” was an active YouTube user, and reportedly posted videos criticizing the company for enacting policies that deemed some of her videos inappropriate for younger audiences.
