YouTube Facilitates Softcore Child Porn Exploitation Network, Says Content Creator

A YouTube content creator is accusing the video platform of facilitating a soft-core child porn exploitation network right out in the open.

YouTuber Matt Watson AKA “MattsWhatItIs” says he’s discovered “a wormhole into a soft-core pedophilia ring on Youtube,” in a viral video that’s garnered nearly 1 million views in under 24 hours.

“Youtube’s recommended algorithm is facilitating pedophiles’ ability to connect with each-other, trade contact info, and link to actual [child porn] in the comments,” the video’s description reads.

He claims certain searches eventually yield suggested videos which then allow users to tap into the international underground network.

TechCrunch confirmed it was “easily able to replicate the YouTube algorithm’s behavior that Watson describes in a history-cleared private browser session which, after clicking on two videos of adult women in bikinis, suggested we watch a video called ‘sweet sixteen pool party.’”

“Videos we got recommended in this side-bar included thumbnails showing young girls demonstrating gymnastics poses, showing off their ‘morning routines,’ or licking popsicles or ice lollies.”

Furthermore, MattsWhatItIs claims the videos are being monetized, with ads from major corporations such as McDonald’s, Disney, Purina, Ikea and other companies appearing in the content.

Due to the sensitive nature of the content, Infowars will not directly embed MattsWhatItIs’ analysis, but his video is available HERE for your viewing.

“It doesn’t matter that they flag videos and turn off the comments, these videos are still being monetized, and more importantly they are still available for users to watch,” says MattsWhatItIs.

Though the videos on the surface are innocuous, the content is characterized as sexual by the users’ many pedophiliac comments, which also include specific timestamps indicating when the girls are in what they view as sexually suggestive positions.

Google and YouTube did not return Infowars’ request for comment as of writing.

A spokesman for YouTube told TechCrunch it’s “reviewing its policies in light of what Watson has highlighted, adding that it’s in the process of reviewing the specific videos and comments featured in his video — specifying also that some content has been taken down as a result of the review.

“However, the spokesman emphasized that the majority of the videos flagged by Watson are innocent recordings of children doing everyday things. (Though of course the problem is that innocent content is being repurposed and time-sliced for abusive gratification and exploitation.),” TechCrunch reported.



‘Haters can’t hate’ Users slam YouTube for mulling thumbs down fix

In a ‘Creator Insider’ video aimed at YouTube content makers, project management director Tom Leung gingerly broached the subject of removing the “dislike” button – but only to combat trolls, he stressed. Users were not amused.

Leung was careful to emphasize that he was merely sharing an “early conversation” that had been “lightly discussed” – and that censorship was only a last-ditch necessity for combating the menace of the so-called “dislike mobs.”

As cringingly apologetic as Leung was – to “remove dislikes entirely from YouTube,” he admitted, was “a very extreme option” and “not super democratic” – Twitter lost no time tearing him apart. “Dislike mobs” are merely “brigading” by another name, a phenomenon YouTube previously ignored, and many suspected it was the matter of who was getting brigaded that had raised YouTube’s hackles.

Many assumed it was the embarrassing ratio on YouTube’s 2018 “rewind” video that was getting under the platform’s skin…


YouTube Cracks Down on Flat-Earth Videos and Other Conspiracies

YouTube is cracking down on “borderline content and content that could misinform,” the company said in a blog post on Friday morning.

The Google-owned video site said it’s tweaking its recommendation algorithm to “reduce” the number of conspiracy videos suggested to users. That includes “videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historical events like 9/11,” according to YouTube’s post.

The company said that this applies to content that “comes close to–but doesn’t quite cross the line of — violating” its user guidelines, and its wide-ranging rule book that includes bans on nudity and videos that promote violence. Cutting back on conspiracy video recommendations impacts less than 1 percent of videos on YouTube, according to the company. But considering YouTube serves more than 1 billion hours of content each day, there’s still a mountain of videos peddling bogus claims.


YouTube Begins Injecting Direct Links To CNN At Top Of Search Results

Google-owned YouTube has introduced a new “feature” whereby news-related search terms now offer links directly to CNN’s website as the number one result.

A search for “Trump Romney” early Thursday brought up a link to an article on CNN’s website under a box dubbed “Developing news.”

The number one video result was also CNN.

Though they started putting links to Wikipedia at the top of “conspiracy-related” search results last year, this is the first time I’ve seen it for regular news.

As I reported last year, YouTube rigged all their search results to favor corporate news organizations rather than actual YouTubers.

As I wrote in August, 2018: “With YouTube’s new search algorithm, if you search the exact title of Ann Coulter’s recent appearance on C-SPAN you have to scroll through 22 unrelated results from establishment news organizations before you can find it.”

“Google has turned YouTube search from a tool giving you access to millions of independent YouTubers to a censored, walled garden which gives you search results from a tiny cadre of establishment media outlets.”

Evidently that wasn’t good enough, so now they’re just injecting CNN’s propaganda directly at the top of their results.

Two weeks ago, a pro-abortion Slate reporter said YouTube “changed search results” for abortion “after I asked.”


Despite Massive Censorship, Alex Jones #40 Most Searched on YouTube

After being kicked off every major social media platform in 2018, including YouTube, Alex Jones still made it onto the top 100 searches for YouTube in America this year.

New statistics released by AHREFS blog show the top 100 searches in the U.S. and worldwide as well as other stats.

Check out the full list here!

Alex Jones being searched for more than Fox News, MSNBC, Rachel Maddow, Ben Shapiro and others proves the American public is desperate for the truth and is not going along with big tech censorship.

For example, coming in at number 40, Alex Jones received 1,990,000 monthly searches compared to liberal comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s 1,370,000.

These type of stats are exactly why the elite started a massive purge of conservative and pro-Trump voices online starting before the 2018 midterms and will not stop until they regain total control.

Meanwhile, as Infowars’ Paul Joseph Watson points out, the YouTube pages of white supremacist David Duke and the controversial Louis Farrakhan are still operating.

The fact that Duke’s page is still available proves YouTube has no intention of preventing “hate speech” as they claimed when pulling down Infowars’ pages.

YouTube Adding ‘Fact Checks’ to Videos that Question ‘Climate Change’

And so it begins: YouTube is now adding “fact checks” to videos which question the man-made global warming scare narrative.

According to Buzzfeed News:

YouTube is now adding fact checks to videos that question climate change, BuzzFeed News has confirmed, as a part of its ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspiratorial fodder on its platform.
On July 9, the company added a blurb of text underneath some videos about climate change, which provided a scientifically accurate explainer. The text comes from the Wikipedia entry for global warming and states that “multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

This new feature follows YouTube’s announcement in March that it would place descriptions from Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica next to videos on topics that spur conspiracy theories, such as the moon landing and the Oklahoma City bombing. In doing the same for climate videos, the company seems to be wading into more fraught and complex intellectual territory.

Sure, in many ways it’s a trivial and pathetic gesture. Quoting Wikipedia as your credible source is a bit like citing CNN as the go-to site for all the latest info on Donald Trump. And anyway, that “scientifically accurate explainer” is at best vague, at worst far more misleading than the videos it is supposed to be “fact checking.”

It says:

“Global warming, also referred to as climate change is the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system and its related effects. Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

So the records show that there has been some gentle warming of less than 1 degree C since the world began emerging from the Little Ice Age a century and a half ago. So what? This whole line of argument is a Straw Man, which wilfully misrepresents the sceptical position. It’s not whether or not climate changes that preoccupies sceptics. It’s whether recent warming is significantly man-made – and if it is, whether, it’s something we should worry about, and whether it’s within our means or in our interest to do anything about it anyway.

But the real issue here, of course, is that like Big Tech’s near-blanket banning of Alex Jones, it’s the thin end of the wedge.

Consumer groups seek probe of YouTube over ads for kids

Consumer and activist groups called Monday for an investigation into Google-owned YouTube for allowing advertising to be targeted at children in apparent violation of US law.

The organizations said that although YouTube claims that the site is only for users 13 and up, Google generates significant profits from kid-targeted advertising on the video-sharing service.

Twenty-three organizations signed a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), arguing that YouTube is among the most popular online platforms for children and offers many programs designed and promoted for children.


Suspect in YouTube Shooting Posted Rants About the Company Online

The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has confirmed the identity of the shooter who opened fire on YouTube’s campus in San Bruno Tuesday. Nasim Aghdam, 39, lived in Southern California and appears to have had a robust presence on YouTube.

In a video posted in January 2017, she says YouTube “discriminated and filtered” her content. In the video, Aghdam says her channel used to get lots of views but that after being “filtered” by the company, it received far fewer views.
