So, sites such as The Duran (youtub channel name "The Duran") have been identified by sources such as the washington post as being part of the propaganda arm of the russian federation.  

this in fact has been verified by *other* pro-kremlin content creators as well.  and yet, when you go to view videos from "The Duran" (most of which are currently pro-Brexit chaos in an attempt to destabilize the EU and Britain), there is no "This content was funded by the Russian Government" notice as there would be on, say, an RT video.

This needs to be fixed.  There is no obvious way in YouTube to report this.  What next?

The reason that happens is because of keywords, to the YouTube A.I System, it's unknown, so that's why that happens.

there's no proof about it being propaganda no matter funding origin. You could argue every channel that's funded is a propaganda channel like that. Which is beyond stupid.

Google Advertising Money(EVERYONE) vs Wall Street Advertising Money(NETWORK TARGETED)

Help me understand this! My partner says that Google has to know where advertising money comes from to pay me for ads that have been placed on my Internet Videos in case the money is sanctioned from Russia! This morning he says, his Twitter on the wall street stock market is doing really well & he is making lots of money! I asked him, how do you know the money you are getting is not from Russia who is sanctioned! I asked, Can Russia invest in Twitter? I said, are you concerned you are getting Russia sanctioned money? He says he don't care, that is for the government to figure out! I told him, well that is your small business how you make money! So shouldn't you keep track of the history on where your money comes from & who is paying you to make sure the money is not sanctioned? Yet he has been telling me that Google has to keep track of where the money is coming from for their business model! Yet he has separated the wall street stock market as having a higher integrity that they are auditing with where money is coming from!  Yet Wall Street stock market is SHADOW BANKING & unregulated!
