MSM Gives Up - Joins Us

You know how the MSM missed the real story of the last primary? Apparently, they've had time to figure it out by watching YouTube. Or maybe it's because, when I answer surveys, I tell them I don't watch the news anymore.

This from The Hollywood Reporter:

"The world's top purveyor of Internet video has launched YouTube Direct, whereby TV and online news editors can obtain video from so-called "citizen journalists" -- and even request such video be shot by amateurs seeking attention.

It's not entirely about celebrities, of course. Many news outlets will be seeking disaster footage, for example, or rowdy behavior at political town hall meetings.

News outlets seeking footage can announce it in a variety of ways, including via call-out videos posted at YouTube. When a YouTube user has video they think will interest the mainstream media, it can make it easy for editors, producers and journalists to contact them.

"News organizations always want to verify the content they use," said Steve Grove, head of news and politics at YouTube."

'Bout time.

Nothing positive here

I will leave it to others to comment why with this (not) new development.

The "MSM" will never deliberately aid us nor long accidentally-PERIOD...

"You are a den of vipers and thieves."

I mean to rout you out!

GOOD! It isn't their job to aid us!

It's their job to report the news.

They've been lazy, sticking to the press release news of established groups. Now we have a way to allow them to be lazy and report our news, too.

You are quite correct that reporting canned info is

easy, thus attractive to the lazy; no need to hunt down what is really happening. If you are suggesting that is all that is behind the mantra coming from the MSM, laziness, I do not agree at all.

Reporting the truth with any regularity would aid us-that will not happen. I agree that the MSM should be reporting "news", that should be their job. But the "news" is what they say it is, what they choose to report. That is just one tool they use, selective and subjective coverage of newsworthy events, to do what they are deliberately doing. Doing deliberately-not due to laziness.

Thanks

for sharing; I have mixed feelings about it. I don't trust youtube...many times, including today, I have attempted to leave a comment which they STOPPED from being posted. These comments of mine contained no www. links, which I know will not be posted, contained no foul language, or had any other reason to not be posted! In other words, they sometimes censor the comments. What's to stop them from doing this, or even removing dissenting comments, on must-see videos given to tv/newspapers?

Bump, though...

O.P.O.G.G. - Fighting the attempted devolution of the rEVOLution

BAN ELECTRONIC VOTING!!

That has never happened to me

I've never posted a video, myself. Is it possible that the video poster has control over comments? They seem to be able to turn them off.
