Comment: If a tree falls in a forest when no one is around.

(See in situ)

If a tree falls in a forest when no one is around.

My feelings on the RP channel are based on my experience creating, distributing and consuming online content. Even though I'm a loyal RP fan since 1997 I won't be giving RP $10 a month to the RonPaulChannel and the reason is simple: Because it's a failure in it's current format!

If a tree falls in a forest when no one is around. Does it make a sound?

The RP Channel is using the same failed format as the Mainstream from the ground up. They are making all the same mistakes as the big boys by failing to understand the Internet has changed things.

IMO the RPChannel has made serious errors in judgement that has doomed the idea to failure, without a large group of investors like Glenn Beck has received and even that won't guarantee success. The operators should have learned something from the successful sites like Alex Jones, Revision3, Vice. These companies know the content is only used to lure the customer to a site on a regular basis. These customers then share the content or links with other sites. This raises page hits and ranks the site higher on the search engines so even more show up. This is what makes a website more valuable and profitable then the original content that was shared. This also has a side benefit of getting the information out for free. Which I would argue is mandatory when talking about politics. Bottom line the videos may be worth Trillions of dollars? And I say so what if no one see it?
