YouTube will add information from Wikipedia to videos about popular conspiracy theories. Last month, YouTube said it would start alerting users about videos from news corporations that get funding from governments.
“When there are videos that are focused around something that’s a conspiracy — and we’re using a list of well-known internet conspiracies from Wikipedia — then we will show a companion unit of information from Wikipedia showing that here is information about the event,” Wojcicki said.
YouTube has thousands of conspiracy videos. A link will be added below the video that will redirect you to Wikipedia. Talking to WIRED, Wojcicki explained that YouTube will initially focus on conspiracy theories.
