YouTube moves against anti-vaccine disinformation

 
661Views 24Comments Posted 29/09/2021

AFP - YouTube announced on Wednesday a tightening of its policy against anti-vaccine content and indicated that its measures will not be limited to disinformation videos about immunizers against Covid-19.

"Videos with content that falsely claim that approved vaccines are dangerous and cause chronic health effects, that say that vaccines do not reduce the transmission of diseases or make people contract diseases, or that contain erroneous information about the substances used, will be deleted." the platform said in a statement.

YouTube said the measure covers content according to which approved vaccines cause autism, cancer or infertility or that they can mark those who receive them.

Misleading or lying videos about older vaccines such as rubella or hepatitis B could also be removed from the site.

In contrast, "content on vaccination policies, new vaccine trials as well as historical successes or failures of vaccines" are still allowed as long as they respect YouTube standards.

The platform has already taken measures against misinformation about the anticovid vaccines and said it had deleted more than 130 videos that violated its regulations in a year.

On Tuesday, it suspended the German accounts of Russian public television RT for spreading "false information about Covid-19."

Moscow considered the sanction a censorship and threatened to block YouTube.

You don't have a clue. I don't watch CNN or Fox. I gather news from all over. I developed a mistrust of all things government generated a long time ago. You, my friend are just another opinionated agenda driven source of misinformation.

No Harley I just posted a study done by the DoD that involved over 5 million. But I am sure your Dr CNN is correct that the clot shot is right for you. I bet your peeing your pants with excitement wait for your next booster shot. In fact I read they have caught people going from jab site to jab site claiming not to be jabbed so they can get extra jabs Experimental gene therapy addiction. I can't wait until winter this year. Like your heath throb Dr F says it's going to be a dark winter and he should know he helped develop the kill shot. Also reported that ADE gets worse the farther you are out from the shot. Boy sucks to be you

Typical response of the anti-vaxer. Semantic gibberish.

The typical logic of the vaccinated. The protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that didn't protect the protected.

Well I read it as those unvaxxed are 27 times less likely to suffer reinfection than those vaxxed. According to a study involving 780.000 people. Pretty hard to blow that big of study off. Or look up the study the Department of Defense put out 2 days ago involving over 5 million people. Here is a short interview everyone should watch. And there are a few other videos out showing what is happening to people. https://rumble.com/vnbgal-never-before-seen-blood-doctor-reveals-horrific-findings-after-examining-vi.html

My cut and paste from the article is the bottom line fool. And because yahoo posted the article doesn't change its veracity. I posted a link (which you say I never do) and you draw a different conclusion. Surprise surprise.

Did you even read it or understand it yourself harley. He is a cut and paste part of it mr slug blood. According to the 778,658-person study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, people who recovered from prior infection and remained unvaccinated were 27 times less likely to experience symptomatic reinfection from the Delta variant when compared to those who had not been infected and received two doses of the mRNA Pfizer vaccine. And taking yahoo as a reliable news source is funny

How's this one dip shit? “The bottom line is that if you’re infected and recovered, you’re still susceptible to reinfection, especially from this Delta variant. ... If you’ve not been vaccinated, get vaccinated; if you’ve been infected and recovered, get vaccinated,” he said. https://www.yahoo.com/news/where-does-natural-immunity-stand-in-fight-over-vaccine-mandates-231039244.html. Probably another one you won't read.

I've posted many links to articles that directly refute the crap you spread. Talk about useless. You offer nothing but "what he said" every time "brian" posts anything. My links fall on your deaf ears. Maybe that's why you can't remember any of them.

Just as we all thought. No links from Harley just more stalling. A waste of time replying to his posts as he never offers anything

Proof is in the puddin' chowder head. Look anywhere except your "research" web sites. Good grief. The evidence is right in front of you and you're so blinded by "brian" and his nonsense you can't see it.

Well FR I thanked him for posting something and your head explodes. Life is hard, it's even harder when your a retard.you and a few others have buyers remorse. Sad you were in such a hurry you did not do your own research but don't get mad at those of us who did. Spend more time seeing what you an do to keep what health you have left. Anytime you want to post a true link that tells us how great the clot shot is I will be happy to read it. Harley has been looking for a couple of weeks now since I ask him but to date has posted nothing

Roland, nice try at presenting as rational, what do you mean when you say "nothing like a vaccine at all"? vac·cine | vakˈsēn | noun a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease: there is no vaccine against the virus.

Skeptical started this thread with a lie when he posted a list of disinformation and claimed it was from the Guardian. It is NOT! Then od ya showed his gullibility by picking up on it and brian the troll followed up with his usual lies. What a bunch of pathetic losers.

I do believe the word Anti Vaccine is being highly overused to make these people out to be crazy. Many of these so called people are not against vaccines at all, they are just against this rushed in experiment that is nothing like a vaccine at all. They are simply concerned about their health and the future of their families. These so called labeled Anti Vaccine people are just looking for some truth and are being stopped at every turn by politicians and the media, who are paid to do so. With a slight bit of honest research I can actually find many Doctors who are attempting to speak out but are silenced, I find that very suspicious. I hear every day, follow the science, when it is the politicians, media, and big Pharma leading the disinformation parade. I think it may be time that we stop thinking of these so called Anti Vaccine people as evil super spreaders and listen to what some of them have to say before there no turning back.

There was a breath of fresh air in the comment section for quite awhile when Newsroom Panama finally stepped up and banned those promoting anti vaxer news and comments. The air again has turned foul. Why Newsroom Panama?

You rely on your hero for all of your catch phrases? Use your own imagination, if you have one.

Regardless of your position on the subject, you owe it to yourself to read this short but excellent summary from the Guardian. https://off-guardian.org/2021/09/22/30-facts-you-need-to-know-your-covid-cribsheet/
