YouTube said on Tuesday that it is adding fact checks to search results to highlight misinformation about the coronavirus.

The website has had policies in place since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak to monitor videos on the platform. This includes information that can help harmful information proliferate. The company does this using a combination of its ‘automated systems’ and content moderator employees that users can dispute if they feel YouTube has been unfair,” reported Fox Business.

It is now expanding its fact-check information panels. “Today, we’re expanding our fact check information panels to the U.S. During fast-moving news cycles, these panels will highlight fact-checked articles above search results,” YouTube Insider said in a tweet. This then enables viewers to make an informed decision regarding the information presented through the news.

“This follows Google’s efforts to support the ecosystem in the midst of the challenging COVID-19 environment,” Youtube said. It also added that “we'll be looking for more ways to support the fact check ecosystem in the future.”

Additionally, YouTube explains explained via a blog post that the feature “expands upon the other ways we raise and connect people with authoritative sources.”

“Our fact check information panel relies on an open network of third-party publishers and leverages the ClaimReview tagging system,” the blog post then added.

    You tube deleted a factual, data based video by a doctor in California….it was extremely informative, not at all political or opinionated …why? Because it wasn’t based on their opinions or beliefs?
