YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki admitted that viewers on the platform don’t want to watch the “authoritative” mainstream media content the video streaming monopoly pushes on its audiences, but that the company will seek to steer users to it anyway.
The liberal YouTube CEO was speaking on the New York Times’ Rabbit Hole podcast. The tech elite recounted the platform’s response to the 2016 Islamic terrorist attack in the city of Nice, France, admitting that she decided to “prioritize” news from mainstream corporate media entities about the event to French YouTube viewers. But there was a problem with the tech platform’s strategy.
“But that didn’t perform very well on our platform.” YouTube engineers confirmed to Wojcicki that “people don’t want to see it.”
Wojcicki explained that at that moment she decided that YouTube would prioritize mainstream media content anyway, giving the legacy media an easy handicap on the independent content creators that were quickly rendering the dinosaur media irrelevant.
The free gift of content filtering to corporate news companies such as MSNBC and CNN has revived their presence on the platform. Both channels have seen traffic on their videos increase by orders of magnitude, with the independent content creators traditionally associated with YouTube being buried under a mountain of irrelevant and unwanted-according to Wojcicki’s admission- content.
Another major YouTube executive, Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan, dismissed the content creators that fueled YouTube’s rise in the media world in even more insulting terms last month. The Big Tech executive bragged of the corporate mainstream media’s supposed credibility, “as opposed to, you know, it’s somebody espousing their opinions about a mask, you know, in their basement.“
Meet the Alternative to the Drudge Report
Use Real News Feed, not Drudge.
An alternative to the Drudge Report has emerged.
Drudge has been in the news lately after controversy emerged about its recent wave of negative coverage of President Donald Trump.
The otherwise renowned conservative news aggregator has now joined the anti-Trump mania and is routinely putting out content that attacks the president.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently described Matt Drudge as a “man of the progressive Left.” He told Matthew Lysiak, the author of a biography on Matt Drudge, that “Matt Drudge is now firmly a man of the progressive left. At times, his site is indistinguishable from The Daily Beast or any other woke propaganda outlet posing as a news company.”
Rumors abounded about Drudge selling out or selling his site to anti-Trump interests and signing a non-disclosure agreement to make sure the controversy surrounding this change in direction was kept under wraps.
No matter how people spin it, Drudge’s pivot towards generic anti-Trump journalism has done a number on its traffic. Drudge Report’s politically correct descent has opened up a vacuum that needs to be filled by America First media.
Enter Real News Feed.
Unlike Drudge, Real News Feed is willing to compile content from an America First perspective.
That means, anything exposing the flaws in the U.S.’s migration system to exposing legacy conservative outlets such as Fox News for their drift towards anti-America First narratives.
When the conservative movement is stagnating, there has to be a dissident outlet that can actually provide fresh perspectives. Now is not the time for people to play nice. Nor is it appropriate for so-called “conservative” outlets to be pushing narratives that can be found in the mainstream media.
America is going through an unprecedented cultural and political transformation which will require it to have a right that is willing to fight back. At the end of the day, it all starts with having a truly alternative voice in the media. From there, ideas can be disseminated and narratives can be shaped. If it wants to move forward, American nationalism needs as many friendly outlets as possible.
All America Firsters should support Real News Feed.
