Google has denied a report that it kicked its right-wing blog Federalist for violating policy against offensive content related to the Black Lives Matter protest.
NBC News reported on Tuesday that Google had banned federalists from making or earning money from Google ads. Another right-wing site, known as ZeroHage, was banned from Google ads for violating the policy.
Google later clarified that “Federally has never been dematerialized” – according to the internet giant, the site was only notified that it was at risk of being pulled from Google AdSense.
“We worked [The Federalist] To resolve issues on their site related to the comments section, “Google’s public relations team said in a statement Statement. “Our policies do not allow ads to run against dangerous or offensive content, including comments on sites, and we offer publishers guidance and best practices on how to comply.”
According to NBC News, Google’s actions against the two sites come after learning of a study conducted by Countering Digital Hat, a U.S. nonprofit that “prevents online hate and misinformation.”
Federalists recently published an article claiming that the mainstream media “lied about looting and violence during the protests,” NBC News reported.
In March, federalists published an article entitled “How Medical ‘Chickenpox Parties’ Can Turn the Tide of Uhan Virus,” which called for the site’s account to be temporarily locked until a tweet promoting the article was deleted on Twitter. Twitter took this step under the policy of social network.
