Shortly after burning the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday, news outlets began streaming streaming on YouTube. Below some of the clips is a strange text box: A snippet from Encyclopedia Britannica about terrorist attacks on September 11.
YouTube, a Google Google Alphabet division, has introduced a feature this box of texts last year to combat the spread of the theory of conspiracy, including those of the 9/1
"We are deeply sorry for the constant fire in Notre-Dame's cathedral," said YouTube spokesman. "These panels are triggered algorithmically and our systems sometimes make a misnomer. We are reducing these panels for live streams associated with the fire."
YouTube is submerged with critiques in the videos it shows and recommends around news topics. The company says it shows "tens of millions" of text panels at the bottom of the videos every week.
