Why are these videos 'recommended' on Roku?

This is a technical question, not a political one. The Youtube feed on my Roku TV is full of calls for a military coup and the jailing of our elected representatives. The Youtube feeds on my computer and phone are not. Why the difference?

I would say that's a better question for Google/Youtube.  Roku doesn't have anything to do with how their Roku channel works.

It only happens on my Roku. I just thought that the Roku corporation might be interested to know that it was happening.  Don't worry. I understand that you meant to say that Roku doesn't control what is fed into it's interface when you wrote that Roku doesn't know how the Roku channel works.

I meant exactly what I said.  Roku has no idea how the Youtube channel works on a Roku device.  Google created it, not Roku.
