As the global head of content policy at YouTube, Michael Grosack is leading a team of policy professionals in a multiyear effort to update and solidify the company’s responsibility efforts. In the past 18 months, they have reevaluated their stance on hate speech and harassment as well as the spread of misinformation. In a hotly contested election year, the job is vast and includes making complicated negotiations between the First Amendment and the responsibilities of YouTube. Grosack has made the call to take down doctored videos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and any videos with misinformation about COVID-19. He has instituted fact-checking policies in advance of elections and has increased by five times the number of videos being removed for hate speech.
