YouTube is in Trouble..

YouTube is in Trouble..

Hello fellow bloggers and readers! Today’s topic of discussion is about all things YouTube. Over the past few weeks YouTube has been in the news for the wrong reasons. Many major brands such as Toyota, Pepsi and Johnson and Johnson have withdrawn their advertising from the video sharing website due to ‘appearing alongside controversial and offensive videos.’ This has been done, due to the brands not being able to control what videos they appear on and the fact that consumers would react negatively to their online marketing campaigns because of that particular video. . . .

Austin Hughey, Breakout Artist Using Youtube

I recently became acquainted with a young man named Austin Hughey and I’m impressed. “All instruments”, “self produced”, “self-harmonies” are all usually a recipe for disaster. Not with this guy. His talent overrides my usual disdain for techno remixes. Plus – and this is a HUGE PLUS — he is polite and unassuming, a set of qualities I hope he can retain. Add a dash of professionalism and he may go far.
Give it a listen and if you enjoy it, go to his Youtube channel for some more

My personal favorite is his redux of an old TV theme

NSA Propaganda video is one of the most disliked videos on youtube ever

The very epitome of propaganda, a video put out by the Department of Defense Youtube channel featuring calls by the NSA Director to limit journalism and expand spying has now achieved one of the highest known percentage of downvotes in Youtube history (4500 downvotes, 70 upvotes).

Checkout the video below, which likely only achieved its 70 upvotes from government bot programs.

The fact that the video has even been released shows how desperate the NSA and DoD are to repair their tarnished reputation. Ultimately, of course, they have and will continue to fail.

Published on May 8, 2013

Eric Nordstrom, the regional security officer posted in Libya when the U.S. Embassy was reopened after the country’s 2011 civil war, teared up today during his opening statements at the Benghazi hearings. It was a very moving moment. The whistle-blowers are under extreme pressure from the administration not to speak out on the 9-11 Benghazi massacre.

Google reports 71 per cent rise in UK government takedown requests

by Shaun Nichols

More from this author


Google has reported a 71 per cent increase in UK government requests to remove items from its search and web services properties over the course of 2011. . . .

In the US, Google received 757 takedown requests across its sites and services, up 70 per cent from the second half of last year. More than half were from Google Groups, where the company removed 379 pages deemed defamatory.

US authorities also called for the removal of 113 videos from YouTube, including several documenting alleged police brutality which Google refused to take down. . . . the full story.

From Google’s report on Government requests for removal “Transparency Report”

Like other technology and communications companies, Google regularly receives requests from government agencies and courts around the world to remove content from our services and hand over user data. Our Government Requests tool discloses the number of requests we receive from each government in six-month reporting periods with certain limitations.

Governments ask companies to remove content for many different reasons. For example, some content removals are requested due to allegations of defamation, while others are due to allegations that the content violates local laws prohibiting hate speech or pornography. Laws surrounding these issues vary by country, and the requests reflect the legal context of a given jurisdiction. We hope this tool will be helpful in discussions about the appropriate scope and authority of government requests. . . . Report
