Varghese discusses YouTube moderation

Sanjana Varghese wrote an article for FFWD titled "YouTube’s Drive to Clean Up its Platform is Erasing Vital Evidence of Potential War Crimes"

I had trouble getting through this article.  I think that was because it contained quotes like this:
“As responses to various policy documents develop, we’re hopeful that we can at least get some pragmatic harm reduction measures in place, such as having clear pathways for civil society to audit and input into training data for algorithms.”
That's an academic quote, alright.  That's an academic quote.
