BBC: Predatory comments prompt YouTube ad suspension

BBC: Predatory comments prompt YouTube ad suspension. “Mars, Lidl, Adidas and others have pulled all advertisements from YouTube after some were found next to clips used by predators to target children. Investigations by the BBC and the Times found tens of thousands of ‘predatory’ accounts have been used to leave explicit comments on children’s videos. Problems with the video-sharing site’s reporting system have been blamed for letting the accounts persist. YouTube said it was ‘working urgently’ to clean up the site.”
