YouTube owner Google is promising a crackdown on keeping terrorist propaganda and other extremist videos from appearing on the site, an intensified effort that will involve computer programs and an expanded group of people working to identify terrorist videos so they can be blocked from being posted or quickly removed. Google said that it's been trying to block terrorist content for years, but general counsel Kent Walker wrote, "the uncomfortable truth is that we, as an industry, must acknowledge that more needs to be done. Now." Google's announcement comes after Facebook pledged last week to also used advanced technology and a team of people to find and remove terrorist content before people see it.
