YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki implied Tuesday that the platform was going to partner with Wikipedia in an attempt to refute, or at least balance out, videos peddling conspiracy theories with a new feature.
She pointed to conspiracy videos about the Apollo Moon landings and "chemtrails", the theory that says commercial airplanes are spreading chemicals for some mysterious objective.
