YouTube stops deleting false 2020 election claims

ICT Desk

YouTube will stop removing videos with false claims of fraud in the 2020 US presidential election, the social media platform announced on Friday.

The move, ahead of the 2024 US elections, is a reversal of its policy put in place after the 2020 vote.

The company said it has deleted tens of thousands of videos questioning the integrity of past elections, but now "it was time to re-evaluate".
The policy goes into effect from June 2.

YouTube and other social media platforms have faced intense pressure since the 2016 elections to safeguard against political misinformation.

The Google-owned platform says the new policy is being put into place because of today's changed landscape.
