YouTube and Saddam HusseinPosted: January 2, 2007
I’m a big fan of YouTube. It’s a wonderful piece of technology and a great invention. That said I’m very disappointed to see them carrying footage of the hanging of Saddam Hussein. At what point does YouTube grow a backbone? I know people want to see the footage and I know that if YouTube doesn’t show it, they’ll get it elsewhere but I don’t think that should matter. YouTube should be prepared to set a standard. Right now they’ve sent a message to the world that says: “anything goes.” I for one think that’s very sad.
