The new YouTube is Youtube Red. YouTube will be carrying original “in-house” studio quality content and shows from major media companies that are already on TV. It is a paid service. If I was a normie, or generally not involved with YouTube, I would be happy because Hulu and Netflix to me, suck.
As the internet continues to change everything, new media oligarchs are rising. Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video have already established themselves as oligarchs of the digital movie and TV distribution business. YouTube is coming in somewhat unique with their huge user created content base. The price of a YouTube Red subscription will remove all ads from the User Generated Content, as well as, give you access to content from the (((Big Media))) library that Red offers.
It is big news that YouTube hired and is hiring more people to sift through content. 10k. Apparently, they have been having problems with advertisers.
YouTube has grappled with a series of controversies this year concerning videos available on its platform. It was forced to adopt additional screening measures last month on its kid-friendly platform, YouTube Kids, after reports showed many of the videos there contained profanity and violence.
Companies such as Etihad Airways, Marriott (MAR) and Deliveroo pulled their advertisements in June — as did the U.K.’s Labour Party — after finding they were appearing alongside videos made by a hate preacher.
In typical internet fashion, both CNN and YouTube use vagaries and distraction to keep more complicated issues under wraps. While YouTube told CNN they used machine learning computers to remove 150k videos by “violent extremists,” the term is never defined.
It’s kind of like “do you want 100% all beef-patties or do you want patties made with 100% real beef?” The second choice may not be a patty made up of beef in it’s entirety. As with all these Federal-Capitalist definitions, you may get ground bone or ground testicle. I don’t think either of those last two are beef. The FDA may say different.
The definitions and omissions employed by YouTube and CNN regarding the new hires are even worse. CNN mentions issues with children’s content but does not mention those creepy ass children’s videos or those that sexualize children.
I’ve never seen a real terrorist video online. Osama’s videos used to come from one company employed by DHS. Somehow that company was able to wipe the whole net clean with a lot fewer resources than YouTube. Now wrong think is being scrubbed from the web and it’s being done under the guise of getting rid of things everyone can agree on.
Adolf Hitler can easily be defined as a violent extremist but I doubt Ariel Sharon ever will be. If they erase Hitler, they need erase Sharon.
The so-called democratizing force the internet was meant to be is not the egalitarian tool some people thought it was going to be.People will probably be more alike than ever in a generation or two because of the coming net. Say maybe 35% of new normies will all get angry with the next Rush Limbaugh, Break Stuff with Limp Biscuit(the next classic, from the turn of the century catalog) and find truth in really artistic porn while living in their boss single bedroom apartment. If they’re lucky, someone on Faceback will see them pass so the landlord doesn’t have to air out the joint after a neighbor smells them stinkin up the place.
Anyway, the oligarchs are taking over the internet, sanitizing it, sanitizing all of us and building a new normie and a new world. Remember to tell your Grand Daughter to be an Old Lady Fetish cam whore in her autumn years so the cat doesn’t eat her rotting corpse after she kicks.
