Google Takes One In The Nads Over Youtube Advertersizers Pulling Ads Due To Being Paired With Extremist Videos

Caught by the short hairs violating their own ideals?
The horror.

Following YouTube gaffe, AT&T, Verizon may pull most of their ads from Google


After their ads appeared next to extremist content on YouTube, telecom companies AT&T and Verizon said they were going to pull their ads from the video site. But the fallout may go further than just YouTube.

Google’s Chief Business Officer Phillip Schindler issued an apology on the company’s blog on Monday, saying the practice is unacceptable. “We know that this is unacceptable to the advertisers and agencies who put their trust in us,” Schindler wrote in the blog statement.

YOUTUBE UNDER FIRE FOR HIDING LGBT VIDEOS

On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal said the ad cuts may expand past YouTube, covering “much of their advertising from Google.”

Google did not immediately respond when reached for comment for this story.

The company has promised to work on reforms and tighten safeguards and introduce new tools to make it easier for advertisers to manage where their ads appear.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt said that with YouTube’s size and scale (more than 100 million hours of video are watched each day), it has a responsibility to match ads and content properly.

“What we do is, we match ads and the content, but because we source the ads from everywhere, every once in a while somebody gets underneath the algorithm and they put in something that doesn’t match,” Schmidt said on FOX Business Network, in a discussion with Maria Bartiromo. “We’ve had to tighten our policies and actually increase our manual review time and so I think we’re going to be okay.”

The moves made by AT&T and Verizon, who are working on their own ad-targeting platforms, coupled with recent moves from others such as McDonald’s, Audi, L’Oreal and retail giant Marks & Spencer to pull their ads designed for U.K. markets may negatively impact Google’s business.

We aren't talking chump change here.

While Google has been under fire for it's blatant censoring activities recently, this backlash just goes to show that political correctness and the narratives endorsed by those who adhere to it are main stream practices.

Badspeak is double plus ungood, even being associated with it causes full grown adults to shit their pants and panic.

Welcome to 1984 in full bloom folks.
