BBC: YouTube advertises big brands alongside fake cancer cure videos

BBC: YouTube advertises big brands alongside fake cancer cure videos. “YouTube’s algorithm promotes fake cancer cures in a number of languages and the site runs adverts for major brands and universities next to misleading videos, a BBC investigation has found. Searching YouTube across 10 languages, the BBC found more than 80 videos containing health misinformation – mainly bogus cancer cures. Ten of the videos found had more than a million views. Many were accompanied by adverts.”
