YouTube said on Friday it will no longer remove content that makes false claims that the 2020 US presidential election was rigged, reversing a policy instituted two years ago amid a wave of false claims about the election, according to CNN.
The platform said in a blog post that it will stop removing “content that advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or malfunctions occurred in the 2020 presidential election and other past US presidential elections.”
YouTube announced in early 2021 that it would suspend any channel that publishes new videos falsely claiming widespread fraud in the US presidential election, instead of just giving a warning as the previous policy called for. following the violent events at the Capitol, according to News.ro.
