And yet Youtube gets all the hate for improper advertisement placement. I bet there are thousands of examples on MSM were advertisements were placed on "inappropriate" content. Wasn't that the whole point of those statements about "the following broadcast does not necessarily represent this channel or it's advertisers".

Ethan from H3H3 was right when he was saying that TV is way worse with ads. He said he was watching CNN for updates on some tragedy, and they ran ads constantly because ratings were high. Everybody knows that YouTube ads are automatic, and studies have shown that people don't connect the brands and the content they're advertising on. This is just an attack by old media, like WSJ, on the new. They were the ones that got PewDiePie dropped by Disney.

That was a good video. H3H3 is a great channel.

And also the fact that whoever is watching that content obviously agrees with it, or the greater proportion do.

Youtube is being called out for its hypocrisy. They will delete and demonetize Trump supporters, conservatives and libertarians on the grounds that their sponsors don't want to advertize on 'controversial' channels, but they are quite happy to run ads on holocaust denial and pedophile videos.

I agree that is an issue. I disagree with you in that your comment underminds mine. You are conflating two simalar problems.

Ahahaha. Conjoined burger ads during a conjoined kid show! That is fucking funny.

I wonder if they use AI to decide that would be a good idea. Oogles deepmind AI may have developed a sense of humor.

Australian restaurant/fast food chain. I didn't realise it at the time when I lived there but that logo looks like Burger King's so I assume they own Hungry Jacks.

They do. Why they called themselves Hungry Jacks I don't know. I'm pretty sure at the airport they are branded Burger King.
