YouTube doesn't even follow their own guidelines if a channel is making them money. And now we find out their algorithms point pedophila-types to home videos of younger children?!?
June 13, 2019

Here at C&L we've been following the story of Carlos Maza versus a specific YouTube channel that engages in anti-gay harassment specifically of him, by name.

This week Samantha Bee focused outrage on YouTube's continued hosting of those videos, as well as YouTube's algorithm allegedly encouraging pedophiles with "suggested" home videos of younger and younger children.

It's long past time for Congress to regulate social media platforms.

Can you help us out?
