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 β€” 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 feature’s launch, Wikipedia is going to be that source.
