YouTube And Wikipedia Team Up To Add Factual Links To Conspiracy-Theory Videos

After YouTube was criticized for allowing a conspiracy theory video on the Florida shootings to appear in the trending section, the video platform has decided to begin helping users navigate videos to determine which are trustworthy โ€” by using Wikipedia articles.

The platform will use a list of known conspiracy theories that already exists on Wikipedia.

The CEO said that in the future, additional link sources could be added, but for the featureโ€™s launch, Wikipedia is going to be that source.
