DSCN8499Here is what I told them in the exit comments:

Long time YouTube user- was once easy & simple to work with.

Frequent prompts to add more info to profile/change name.

Trying to edit YouTube profile image & header image- Way Too Hard.

Keep it simple- like Twitter & I’d be OK.

Constant/confusing prompts to create/enhance Google plus acct.

I stopped watching a while back.

 

In a general sense- I get the feeling these folks are not about to question the drug war, war on terror, homeland security police state, etc.

A couple examples:

 

Video promoting the drug war:

Serious subject matter- covered like an elementary school field trip down to the fire station- except- students might come up with some intelligent or interesting questions at the fire station.

With drugs streaming into Washington, state turns to National Guard for help

 

Video promoting gunboats escorting ferries on Puget Sound:

Another report treating viewers as if they are part of an elementary school field trip:

Behind the wheel of the ferry gunboat

 

Questions TV newspeople will not ask about those gunboats:

Gunboat escorts on Puget Sound

 

In some cases local TV newspeople come up with some serious investigative reports. Wish there was more of it.

Until then, alternative media & citizen journalists are stepping in to provide coverage that isn’t approved by local TV networks.

Some examples of solid reporting provided by TV news and alternative media here:

Best case scenario- elected officials, public agencies, & a free and independent press work together to keep people informed.

When this old media concept breaks down- citizen journalists step in.

Both major parties are OK with decades of ongoing, undeclared wars overseas. They deserve to be questioned.

 

American politicians are extremely uncomfortable with unscripted questions presented by the alternative media-
