2.) The Trending Page

The Trending page is widely criticized by the site's non-political users as it prioritizes all curated content that has received YouTube's stamp of approval.

Clips of Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, and Stephen Colbert are often featured on the Trending page despite having relatively low view counts in comparison to other videos.

As you can see in the picture above two videos (one ranked above and one ranked below the clip from The Daily Show) have far more views in comparison to The Daily Show video. 

Allegations of bias have even sparked a change.org petition to change the name of the page to “Staff Picks.”
