(NEWS) YouTube To Take Action On Terrorist Videos

"Following criticism of its failure to remove terrorist content, the video-sharing site YouTube plans a new system that will get terror videos offline more quickly. According to U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner, YouTube sent him a letter describing a new system that will allow viewers to label videos as promoting terrorism.

The site currently allows viewers to flag videos as inappropriate, however, there is no distinction made between videos that promote terrorism or violence and those that are inappropriate for other reasons.

Critics have accused the site of hosting thousands of videos created by various terrorist groups, and of making too little effort to track and remove incitement."
