You watch one video of Tim pool lying to Joe rogan and get white nationalist shit showing up in recommendations on youtube.

has failed us.

I'm all for freedom of speech. I don't mind differing opinions, even the horrible ones, but grey and black propaganda shouldn't be actively pushed in front of people.

My theory is that like liqour stores make the majority of their money off a small amount of customers (drinking a ton), it is far more valuable to throw radical stuff in front of fairly normal people in the hopes of catching the eye of the small number of people suceptible to that kind of manipulation.

The engagement of that one radicalized person watching alt right conspiracy video after video is just too high for google to resist.
