After Logan Paul incident, Google Preferred YouTube videos will face further vetting

Pasadena, Calif. - The proliferation of original scripted TV content continues to benefit producers and viewers looking for targeted programming, YouTube Global Head of Original Content Susanne Daniels said Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

The company said in a statement that it has removed Paul's channels from Google Preferred and will not feature him in the new season of the web series "Foursome".

Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) owns the most valuable user-generated streaming video platform on earth, but being the parent company of YouTube certainly doesn't come without its downside.

Google's plan isn't much different from previous plans for policing the majority of videos on YouTube.

Videos that are part of Google Preferred have always been governed by YouTube's general and posting rules that define offensive and unacceptable content.

On Tuesday, Jan. 9, YouTube said that Paul's channel violated its community guidelines and it will have consequences.

YouTube has suspended projects with United States internet star Logan Paul following his controversial video showing the body of a suicide victim.

Aside from the mentioned series, Paul has also been booted out of several projects, which has several people questioning the future of "The Thinning: New World Order", which was announced last November.

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred".

It's now unclear how the most popular YouTubers will be affected by this change and if any will speak out if and when their channels experience flagging, demonetization, or other actions from YouTube.

"As you know, we work with lots of YouTube stars, all of them are incredibly talented".

While YouTube cast its net far and wide with new content regulations introduced previous year after the, now the company seems to want to zero in on the most popular channels as their videos typically get the most views. Google made an official announcement regarding the same this week.
