YouTube's human moderators couldn't stem the deluge of Christchurch massacre videos, so YouTube benched them

Even then not everything was caught, as users got around the machine by adding watermarks, cutting together clips, or in some cases even animating people in the video. Mohan said YouTube's processe...

Elizabeth Warren Wants To Break Up Amazon, Google And Facebook; But Does Her Plan Make Any Sense? (techdirt)

This isn't necessarily a big surprise, given that she's suggested this many times over the past few years, but 2020 Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has just laid out her plan for breaking up Amazon, Google and Facebook. It's certainly worth reading to understand where she's coming from, and some of the arguments are worth thinking about -- but much of it does feel like just grandstanding populism in front of the general "anti-big tech" stance, without enough substance behind it.
