EX-GOOGLE ENGINEER HAILS YOUTUBE CENSORSHIP AS “HISTORIC VICTORY,” NOW LOOKING INTO JORDAN PETERSON VIDEOS

The former Google engineer who called YouTube’s algorithm change that buried “conspiracy theory” content a “historic victory” is now investigating why Jordan Peterson’s videos are so popular on the platform, emphasizing once again how ‘conspiracy theories’ are being conflated with dissident political opinions to justify a new wave of censorship.

YouTube recently announced it would stop recommending videos that contained “conspiracy theory” content or were deemed to be ‘misleading’.

This was in reaction to a BuzzFeed article which conflated conspiracy theory content with videos by mainstream conservative commentators like Ben Shapiro, Prager University and philosopher Jordan Peterson.

Now an ex-Google engineer who previously worked on YouTube’s algorithm has shifted his attention to finding out why Peterson’s videos get so much traction.
