YouTube and Digg have severely been changed since 2008Submitted by Clark_Kent on Wed, 05/18/2011 - 19:34
Just a reminder to you guys. Back in 2007 when we began Ron Pauls first campaigning and viral ads on youtube it was less micromanaged. Youtube had never been used for political platforming and had never experienced the amount of viral videos of a political candidate until Ron Paul.Youtube then grafted CNN "debates" into their website and from then on youtube became a tool of political power for the elite. YOUTUBE against its users removed the 5 star rating option and the front page which use to show the highest rated videos. Youtubes purpose was destroyed and washed down into the abyss of being another tentacle for the lying corporations and politicians. DIGG.com in a similar fashion decided to change their rating system and categorized everything rather than letting the most digged info get placed at top. Digg became a tentacle of the corporations and politicians somewhat and still degresses.
Youtube was a powerful tool in Ron Pauls campaigning..how do we intend to replace such a tool that was used in the 2007-08 elections ?
