YouTube invests 25mn dollars to improve news features

Search results will also include linked previews of news articles, since journalists usually write about breaking news first before producing more labor-intensive videos, and reminders that information about developing events can change quickly.

I think for any news to be termed as credible, authoritativeness is essential and for the same reason thats, why YouTube is investing in new product features to give priority authoritative sources.

In addition, YouTube will promote videos from news sources in the search results under the Top News "shelf".

Google's YouTube says it is taking several steps to ensure the veracity of news on its service by cracking down on misinformation and supporting news organizations.

The YouTube effort comes as Google and Facebook - companies that drew heavy criticism following the 2016 U.S. election for failing to prevent the propagation of false news - have been taking a series of steps to promote verifiable journalism.

"YouTube is expanding its Player for Publishers, a solution that allows publishers and news organisations to embed YouTube's video player on their own websites and mobile apps".

Other topics that are targets of misinformation peddlers - like the moon landing, for instance - will see an increase in related links to sources like Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannia.

Still, Mantzarlis believes it would be best if Google used people over algorithms to vet fake news entirely.

Google-owned YouTube Monday announced a new commitment of 20 million US dollars to making authoritative news to counter false online information spreading on its platform, especially at the time of breaking-news events. YouTube will also add more members to its team that supports news publishers.

Additionally, Kyncl discussed YouTube's new "working group" for executives and representatives of news outlets to "help shape the future of news on YouTube". These features are already in 17 countries including the US, UK, France, Nigeria and Italy.

The challenge is deciding what constitutes authority when the public seems more divided than ever before on which news sources to trust or whether to trust the traditional news industry at all.

Google announced the Google News Initiative, which sought to improve news literacy, in March. In the coming months, Google plans to double the number of countries where these highlights are available. John Green, Ingrid Nilsen and Mark Watson will work with MediaWise to educate teenagers about digital media literacy.
