Google Removes 2,500 YouTube Channels Linked To China
Google has claimed to have pulled down over 2,500 YouTube channels linked with China, in an effort to fight disinformation on the platform.
The YouTube channels were removed between the months of April and June as part of their investigation which is still on, into coordinated influence operations tied to China.
These channels that have been removed have reportedly posted ‘spammy, non-political’ content while a small subset did touch politics,
said Google in its quarterly bulletin on disinformation operations carried out by the giant.
The Chinese Embassy in the United States of America, however, did not immediately respond to a message seeking comments on the same. China has denied allegations of spreading disinformation, in the past.
