    YouTube CEO Admits Users Don’t Like Boosting of “Authoritative” Mainstream Channels, But They Do it Anyway

    CENSORSHIP: YouTube CEO Admits Users Don’t Like Boosting of “Authoritative” Mainstream Channels, But They Do it Anyway

    “It doesn’t matter.”

    Published 1 min ago on 12 May, 2020 Paul Joseph

    YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki admits that the company knows its users don’t like the video giant rigging its own algorithm to boost “authoritative” mainstream sources, but that they do it anyway.

    For several years now, the company has artificially gamed its own search engine to ensure that independent content creators are buried underneath a wall of mainstream media content.

    This rigging is so severe that the company basically broke its own search engine, with some videos posted by independent creators almost impossible to find even if the user searches for the exact title.

    The change was made to help struggling mainstream networks who were losing the eyeball war to independent content creators despite their massive financial backing.

    In an interview with the New York Times’ “Rabbit Hole” podcast, Wojcicki said the decision to push “authoritative” search results was made after the Nice massacre, but that even after the change, these results were performing poorly in terms of engagement.

    “The users don’t wanna actually see it,” YouTube engineers told Wojcicki at the time.

    But Wojcicki refused to listen and told them, “It doesn’t matter. We have a responsibility. Something happened in the world and it’s important for our users to know.”

    “In the years since Wojcicki made this decision, YouTube has rigged the site heavily in favor of authoritative sources to the point that they’re now 10x more likely to top search results for some news events while YouTubers won’t even get recommended for breaking news,” reports Reclaim the Net.

    As we previously highlighted, the company’s disdain for its own user base was also underscored by its Chief Product Officer Neil Mohan insulting non-mainstream YouTube creators as basement-dwelling idiots.

    Does this mean there are people who use YouTube for something besides listening to music they have on a CD or tape...somewhere?

    Like Linda Hirshman, self-proclaimed feminist who wrote that she hate, hate, hated throwing Tara Reade under the bus, since she believed Ms Reade was telling the truth.

    But she did it anyway.
