I weigh in on the brouhaha about YouTube making certain videos ineligible for monetization (or running ads). I have some experience since my whole channel has been disabled from monetization since this January.
The outsize role of private intelligence firms and their willingness to manufacture “truth” constitutes a sort of epistemic warfare.
I see this every day in my research.
“One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.”
The real story behind accounts that have turned to the Dark Side. HowISeeIt, Peekay & others implicated. I don’t mince words in this one.
Judge for yourself. I just report the news. HowISeeIt can clear things up anytime on his show, as can the others.
This seems like a big deal to me. Some proof that channels are being taken over and cloned. We need to be able to do something about this.
