My complaint:

Why is it that state affiliated media from say Qatar or China is labelled as such, but state affiliated media from the UK or Australia is not? Why is there no indication of where privately funded media get’s there funding from, or if the USA government has subsidised private media that reports how they prefer?

Suggested solution:

Add funding warnings for all state-affiliated and state-funded media, equally for all governments or abandon the policy for the selective governments you currently apply tis policy to.
Conversely, you could label all Youtube content with a warning that youtube itself is not a-political or un-biased.
