01) Congress is taking on YouTube’s pedophilia problem

“Three senators are calling for YouTube to take more direct action in protecting children against predatory behavior on the platform in the wake of a recent New York Times story, which investigated sexually predatory views and comments on children’s videos posted to YouTube.

Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) have each taken a step in addressing YouTube’s child safety issue. Hawley announced yesterday that he would be introducing a bill that would make it unlawful for video-hosting platforms like YouTube to recommend videos that feature minors. Recommendation systems are under particular scrutiny after the Times report, which showed YouTube’s recommendation algorithm suggesting videos of younger and younger women and girls if a user starts off watching erotic videos.

“The sexualization of children through YouTube’s recommendation engine represents the development of a dangerous new kind of illicit content meant to avoid law enforcement detection. Action is overdue,” Blumenthal and Blackburn’s letter reads. “YouTube must act forceful and swiftly to end this disturbing risk to children and society.”

See that?…

…They just invented a “new kind of illicit content”, and strongly suggested that it is [or should be] punishable by law.

…They’re talking about home videos here.

The Mythicist Milwaukee focuses on educating the freethought/skeptic/atheist community about the mythological origins of religion. Dr. Robert Price asserts the Jesus Myth Theory viewpoint – wherein there are flaws with the evidence for a historical Jesus – and made the case that Jesus is no more than a mythological figure. Jesus while Professor Ehrman supported the stance that there is strong evidence for the existence for a historical Jesus. This was one of the most anticipated debates in the secular and theist realm alike! Two New Testament scholars coming together to discuss the hotly debated topic of the existence of a historical Jesus Christ.

Matt Dillahunty was the debate moderator who currently serves as the president of the Atheist Community of Austin. In addition, Mr. Dillahunty also serves as a host of the internet radio show “Non-Prophets Radio” and of the Austin television cable access show “The Atheist Experience”.
