I've wondered that as well. I've never set up a YouTube account and so it makes it impossible to watch on the Xbox app so I usually don't bother.
YouTube generally makes people sign up in order to be allowed to watch adult content to protect younger viewers. How it usually works is that when uploading a video you can submit to them if you think it contains content not suitable to minors. You can choose not to flag it up, but if you do choose not to warn them and enough people flag it up, then YouTube will take it down until you do, so it's better to err on the side of caution.

IGN and gamespot get their own apps, seems strange there isn't something like that for you given you're generally better and xbox specific.
As Jonty mentions, some stuff does go up, but for similar reasons to YouTube putting it behind the sign-in thing, MS tend to err on the side of safety when it comes to content on the dashboard and keeping it to family friendly stuff (only really using the family controls when the game mentioned within a video is a mature game), and again the content in Breakdowns often skirts on the side of risque. An app might be possible in the future, but I believe someone at OXM/Future would have to create said app, rather than MS doing it for them, so it's probably more a case of when/if they can spare the resources to do so.
