Google vows to pull ads from extreme videos and sites

“We won’t stop at taking down ads,” Philipp Schindler, Google’s chief business officer said. “The YouTube team is taking a hard look at our existing community guidelines to determine what content is allowed on the platform — not just what content can be monetized.” Google, of course, can’t control what’s published on the wider web, but it can specify where ads are shown via its advertising network. With YouTube, however, the company has end-to-end control, and has a responsibility to moderate the content that’s available to users. – Nick Summers, Engadget
