YouTube Will Warn Users When They’re Watching State-Sponsored Propaganda

YouTube also intends to similarly mark news agencies that receive some or all of their funding from the public. At some level, it seems fundamentally unfair to deploy the same UI feature casting skepticism on the agendas of state actors to, say, NPR. “The notice will appear below the video, but above the video’s title, and include a link to Wikipedia so viewers can learn more,” the post explains, which surely will not lead to more vandalism of Wikipedia. – Bryan Menegus, Gizmodo
