By Around the Web

(JUST THE NEWS) – YouTube reversed its 2020 election misinformation censorship policy on Friday, ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

YouTube explained the reason for the reversal in a statement. “We first instituted a provision of our elections misinformation policy focused on the integrity of past US Presidential elections in December 2020, once the states’ safe harbor date for certification had passed. Two years, tens of thousands of video removals, and one election cycle later, we recognized it was time to reevaluate the effects of this policy in today’s changed landscape,” YouTube said.
