YouTube’s controversial algorithm is recommending videos considered disturbing and hateful by users and which often violate the platform’s very own content policies, according to a crowdsourced investigation released today by Mozilla.

Coverage of the study included NBC News, NPR’s Marketplace, Politico, Business Insider, Techcrunch, The Verge, Mashable, Adweek, and Fortune.
