Youtube will begin censoring recommended content…

The video giant announced in a blog post that there’s no way you follow that they will essentially stop recommending conspiracy theories (wtf is Special K going to do with this life now?), particulary ones that make blatantly false claims like 9/11 didn’t happen or that the Earth is flat.

Hey i’m all for quality content, but i’m a little paranoid when it comes to whether or not content is selectively chosen for censorship. But what do i know? I don’t even know what size tin foil hat I am. What do you think?
