I had a question up last night about one of the campaign ads running for congressional primaries this year. It was derailed when some drama queen decided to pop in and throw a hissy about YouTube links. Like it or not, pretty much every elected official is now releasing vlogs and ads directly to YT, as are CSpan, the newspapers, and several departments of the government. The only place to see the ad I posted is on tv in that candidates state or on YT where she has it hosted.
If you are still clinging to a blanket refusal to click on YT, and thereby refusing to accept half the info involved in making decisions about issues, can you still consider yourself informed? Where does the responsibility lie - should tax money be going to double release everything - once on YT and then repackaged on a custom site for YT-phobes, or should they suck it up and learn to discern credible sources on their own?

ALL of Youtube is not silly. LEGITIMATE new sources and campaigns are using you tube. If you cant tell the difference between "carly from californias" vidio and at a legit vid from a legit place that sounds like a personl problem. I am with you NP.

I didn't hear anyone complain when Obama was doing a question and answer session on YouTube last week. The WHITE HOUSE put it on YouTube.
"I would rather read something than see a "creative ad" that is put on You Tube because ANYONE can put some dumb You Tube on the Internet and it could be a pack of lies."
While not everything on YouTube is reliable, not everything put in written word is reliable either. This is not a particularly solid argument.

I dont refuse any info, I'll look at it all, but the biases way against the purported "facts". My only issues with YouTube are two fold: 1) Why do the videos take so long to load?? 2) Anyone can make a video saying anything, that doesn't give it credence.
