YouTube to redirect

As of July 21st YouTube is redirecting any searches for "violent extremist propaganda" to existing videos of:
  • "testimony from people who have left IS, describing what life in the group was really like
  • footage of a suffering elderly lady confronting two IS fighters and telling them to "return to the way of God"
  • speeches by imams denouncing violence and extremism
  • footage from inside IS-controlled areas, showing the reality of life there"  

This information is not created by western governments or entities fighting IS. YouTube hopes that will make viewers of the content consider it as truth rather than propaganda. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-40681625
