    Extract of article:

    In March, the Google News Initiative (GNI) kicked off with the goal of helping journalism thrive in the digital age. Today, we’re announcing steps we’re taking with the GNI to support the future of news in online video, and product features we’ve been working on to improve the news experience on YouTube.



    For detailed information about the steps YouTube are taking (including $25 million of funding to legitimate news organisations), see the official blog post: https://youtube.googleblog.com/2018/07/building-better-news-experience-on.html

    I wonder how they decide what a "legitimate news organization" is?? :eek: I have to take news stories with a hefty grain of salt because of all the biases and selective editing that they do. :/

    I think it can be a sensitive issue, so I'm glad YouTube is aware of it and trying to do something! ^_^ But I hope corruption and some form of "news censoring" doesn't creep in....

    Aren't most of the news "exaggerated". I think they make things seem more out of control than what they are. I mean don't get me wrong, some news are definitely true but I just think sometimes they are not 100% truthful.

    and the winner is..... three multimillion subscriber channels??? hahaha! Whatever happens to the world... stays to ...Youtube!

    I understand that Youtube wants to drive people to it's services, but, there are news that indeed have to pe presented live and accurate from the field while they happen and breaking news that cannot be transformed into a decent video within a few minutes without proper research, material, images, graphics and similar I believe...
