YouTube Bans some Ads from its masthead

YouTube said  it will ban ads related to gambling, alcohol and prescription drugs, as well as political and election ads, from its masthead  the banner displayed at the top of its website and apps. This is the second big change in less than a year to YouTube’s masthead policies, after banning advertisers in November from reserving the spot for a full day. Its policies have come under intense scrutiny in recent years, particularly around its approach to misinformation and hate speech. Do you think that the ban is a nice move towards controlling raising cases of societal vices ?
