Google and YouTube have collectively removed more than 300 pro-Trump ads on their platforms, part of what company officials say is an increased effort to combat misinformation on their servers.

The news program 60 Minutes learned of the removal after reviewing a company transparency report. That document did not explain the reasons for removing the ads nor how many days they ran on the platforms before being scrubbed.

In an interview with 60 Minutes, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki denied that the platform discriminates against conservative content, stating that the company tries to "enforce [its] policies in a consistent way for everybody."
