YouTube Says It’s Stopping Hate Speech. It Is Obviously Not.

As a Google representative championed the company’s work in going “beyond what the U.S. requires” in cutting hateful content from its platforms, users flooded the comments section of a YouTube livestream showing the congressional hearing where the comment was made with white nationalist, supremacist, and otherwise bigoted posts.

The hate speech was so rampant that YouTube, a Google subsidiary, eventually shut the live comments off.

I'm divided on whether YouTube should even allow comments. I've gotten one or two useful facts from them, otherwise it's the online equivalent of the walls of the shitter in gas station rest rooms.
