i think it all boils down to
G will always say "its not us", but we won't know for sure!
algos are coded by humans. businesses are driven by commercial interests. why blindly trust a company?
secondly, ever thought about the legislation in france and other countries being somewhat different from the u.s in this respect? sorry to say that much of the disgusting, libelous and even racist content i've come across especially in certain forums is hosted in the u.s. content that may fall under freedom of speech and therefore be perfectly legal there. whereas in other countries expressions of that kind will lead into heavy legal trouble.
