“Moderate”? More like “police for politically incorrect thoughts.” This is only going to increase the already rampant YouTube censorship of those who dissent from the leftist line. My YouTube account was terminated in September because of a 2014 video entitled, “Al Qaeda and Islamic State flags in London’s tunnels.” The video shows jihadis displaying al Qaeda and Islamic state flags on one of London’s tunnels (see this).

Although Google, which is YouTube’s parent company, employs machine learning algorithms to automatically flag videos which may breach its rules, the ultimate decision to remove content is made by humans.
In a statement from YouTube’s chief executive, Susan Wojcicki, the company claimed to have reviewed almost two million videos and removed 150,000 since June.
In August, YouTube was criticised for deleting video evidence relating to potential war crimes in Syria as part of its work to remove terrorist content and propaganda from the platform.
A range of private and public sector organisations suspended their advertisements from YouTube in March amid concerns they were appearing beside inappropriate content….
