4A's SmartBrief | Mar 23, 2017

Verizon, AT&T and Johnson & Johnson are the latest brands to pull their ads from YouTube and Google's display network after the ad-placement controversy that has seen brands' ads appear next to extremist content. More than 250 brands globally have stopped advertising on the platform, and Google has responded by saying it is immediately putting in place processes to give advertisers more control over where ads appear.
