"YouTube, the Great Radicalizer"
"At one point during the 2016 presidential election campaign, I
watched a bunch of videos of Donald Trump rallies on YouTube.
I was writing an article about his appeal to his voter base
and wanted to confirm a few quotations. Soon I noticed
something peculiar. YouTube started to recommend and
"autoplay" videos for me that featured white supremacist
rants, Holocaust denials and other disturbing content."
