YouTube has removed thousands of videos: Alphabet CEO

Pichai made the remarks at the Reuters Next conference.

"We've been removing, you know, thousands of videos, including videos from President Trump's channel, if we found them to be violative," he said. "And we have clear, consistent policies. Content moderation, obviously, is about identifying content at scale and removing it before people can see it. We reduce the spread. We don't recommend or promote content which we think is violative. And more importantly, we raised you know, we've given billions of views, both in terms of labeling we have done, and we raised authoritative content from news organizations."
