I noticed the youtube algorithm has been altered to favor legacy media

Postby Luigi » Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:18 pm

I wanted to find a funny viral video I found of a montage of Donald Trump winning the election. I searched Trump election montage and every video that came up was from a news agency channel such as CNN, ABC, etc. I scrolled down a while and it didnt change. I checked the search criteria and it was set to "relevant" so I changed it to "view count" -lo and behold the video I was looking for is the top 3 results. The top one has over 3 million views. Why was this one less "relevant" than at least 15 news agencies talking about the election in a very boring fashion? It seems pretty obvious that because "relevant" is subjective google is just taking money to boost certain channels in this metric, which is the default search metric. We saw this coming though, the legacy media has a lot of money, a lot of resources, and will adapt very quickly. They wont die without a fight.

As surprising as the rotation of the planet's axis.

Considering what you believe in I guess you should probably shut the fuck up
People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

There's a difference between mysticism and delusion.

That would really depend on who you ask

if it clears things up somewhat, I also believe the sun and moon are flat too.

Jehannum are you just joking or have you caught the flat earth bug?

I’ve spent an embarrassingly many hours pondering and puzzling with flat earth stuff. Not so much as serious investigation but more of just a brain teaser, an exercise of examining reality from an experimental point of view

For a while I was forced to admit an agnostic position, unable to prove it to myself conclusively, but recently I’ve figured out a few proofs that have really satisfied me that the FE model cannot be true. It has to do with my understanding of perspective as a trained illustrator, the way the sun moves in the sky etc. Was actually really happy to find these proofs because to be honest FE messed with my head for a while, if you are able to dismiss NASA it is really quite tricky for the average person to distinguish between globe or FE.

Would be happy to share my findings with anyone who gives a shit lol. There is a stubborn mofo on twitter who signed up here once I’d like the chance to show my proofs.
