COVID-19 auf YouTube

„How covid-19 conspiracy theorists are exploiting YouTube culture – Covid-19 conspiracy theorists are still getting millions of views on YouTube, even as the platform cracks down on health misinformation. – When the notorious conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was kicked off YouTube and Facebook in 2018, the lesson was supposed to be that deplatforming works.

But platforms have struggled with effective enforcement. Health misinformation poses its own challenges, and existing conspiracy theories and false claims are adapting and spreading in the current pandemic faster than fact-checking – or sometimes science – can catch up.“
