legendre007It's also ironic that Bernstein casts YouTube as a threat to "representative democracy"; YouTube is the way it is -- the way he hates -- exactly because YouTube _is_ democratic in how it allows for more and more people to express themselves. It's democratic in now how almost any middle-class weirdo with internet access and the right equipment can upload onto YouTube and express himself. If the majority of people are misinformed, then it's natural that the majority of opinions on YouTube will be misinformed as well; that's not undemocratic; that is one of the consequences and implementations of democracy.
Monster Mashba ha ha ha..... I had a suggestion for a buzzfeed video and I went to click the not interested button (I just don't like buzzfeed). But YouTube took away the option, I then tried it on another non buzzfeed video to see if they just removed the option all together. But nope the not intended option was still on that video.
IneptCynicThe Hypocrisy, of BuzzFeed News having a YouTube channel as well, is overwhelming. BuzzFeed is on YouTube. No one is silencing their intellectually dishonest, sexist, and quite frankly race baiting, content from the website's multiple channels. They will criticize it, though. Jeff is correct, Youtube-users criticize other users daily.

Janet EskueIs this guy aware that he said, "representative democracy" and yet is making it clear that he doesn't want everyone in the democracy to be represented? Just found that odd, along with the fact, as you pointed out, that the internet is not solely relegated to America. The internet is world wide...hallelujah!
highksThese leftists believe that they are the only good and intelligent people, and everybody who is not a leftist must surely be retarded and shouldn't be able to speak or vote. They actually have to believe this, because otherwise they'd have to really deal with conservative and right-wing ideas and then they'd soon realize they are completely wrong on everything.
