Google: UK gov Ads with Terrorist Videos

What happened at Google meeting with UK government – Business Insider

“the government discovered its ads — and ads for other taxpayer-funded services such as The Royal Navy and the BBC — were appearing next to extremist videos on YouTube…

It is inexplicable to us that Google can move very fast to remove material from YouTube when it is found to be copyrighted, but that the same prompt action is not taken when the material involves proscribed organizations and hateful and illegal content,” the letter read.

“It is totally unacceptable that taxpayer-funded advertising has appeared next to inappropriate internet content – and that message was conveyed very clearly to Google. The Cabinet Office has told Google it expects to see a plan and a timetable for work to improve protection of government adverts to ensure this doesn’t happen again. YouTube advertising remains on hold while that work is carried out.””
