Re: the problem of overbooked flights in the US

On my YT newsfeeds United is now planning to offer up to $10,000 USD for passengers to give up their seats. If it only went with the legal recommendation of up to $1350 it could have most probably avoided this shitstorm.

Re: Youtube advertiser's exodus and demonetization

I wouldn't say everyone runs adblock, because some of these channels were getting good money before. I also ran ad block occasionally. I dare say some people if they are willing to support a channel, will disable ad block when watching it.

Re: Trump Dump: Foreign Policy (Thread I)

Well Trump has now put tariffs on trade coming in my from that country starting with C, which is China just like he promised to stop the Chinese raping the US. Hold on a minute, what do you mean its not China, its another country starting with C. What? Its Canada. :D http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/24/...

Re: Youtube advertiser's exodus and demonetization

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22Enxv1m8rU David Pakman is describing an uptake for like 2 days, but now he is getting 7% of adds on videos viewed compared to 60% of adds (ie 6 out of every 10 videos used to have adds) and the monetizing is less, so he is like earning 3.5% of previous add revenue. ...

Re: the problem of overbooked flights in the US

It turns out after checking the sources, that the David Dao who was on the plane was the same one who had his licence revoked and retained. The other David Dao was a resident elsewhere, and people have contacted both David Dao's associates to confirm. It was still a shitty thing to do by those journ...

There is a Dr. David Dao with the legal history as described, which is Dr. David Anh Duy Dao, as reported by the Independent. The publication claims that the passenger on the United flight may have actually been Dr. David Thanh Duc Dao, an unrelated person. Confusion still seems to exist about Dr. ...

On all or most videos, or just one? Because they are reporting some monetization, just ridiculously low like less than $10 for a day dispute lots of views.

4. I can't stress this enough, the airline can DENY BOARDING they can't remove you except if canceling the plane or for security reasons.

Funny thing is, the leftist channels I watch have all been demonetized. I have heard The Young Turks are still ok, but then they derive money from membership as well, so they may not be hurting so bad.

I think youtube has close to a monopoly in western countries. There are things like dailymotion (French site) for example which seems less strict with enforcing copyright and I am sure there are others as well. However I don't think they have the anywhere near the same number of users as youtube. Go...
