Spotlight Impact Story
Google’s YouTube outlined its plans for handling the 2022 U.S. midterm, highlighting tools at its disposal to limit the effort to limit the spread of political misinformation. When users search for election content on either Google or YouTube, recommendation systems are in place to highlight journalism or video content from authoritative national and local news sources such as The Wall Street Journal, Univision, PBS NewsHour, and local ABC, CBS, and NBC affiliates. YouTube will also direct voters to an information panel on voting and a link to Google’s “how to vote” and “how to register to vote” features.
