Google has been summoned to appear in front of the UK government to explain why taxpayer-funded ads are appearing next to extremist content on YouTube, The Times reported.
The issue is not only the juxtaposition of government ads next to inappropriate content, but the fact that those ads are making money for the video creators. The Times says a YouTube user earns $7.60 (£6.16) on average for every 1,000 times an ad is viewed.
On Thursday, the government suspended all of its YouTube advertising until Google can make assurances that ads from public-funded bodies would not appear in unsafe environments.
