YouTube Removes 7.8 Million Videos in Quarter for Inappropriate Content

YouTube removed 7.8 million videos and 1.6 million channels in the third quarter of this year, mostly for spreading spam or posting inappropriate adult content, the company said in a report. The Community Guidelines Enforcement Report comes amid growing questions — including in a congressional hearing — about how YouTube monitors and deletes problematic content from the platform, including videos depicting violent extremism and hateful, graphic content.
