granted the average person that creates these videos does not have the press credentials nor access to conduct a proper interview. But plenty of footage exists to present things in a straightforward manner as opposed reeling 15 seconds of film back and forth at various speeds with odd and unrelated music into a 2.5 minute video.
I would guess that newer videos just follow the formula of earlier rapidly done, sloppy video as either homage, lack of inspiration or to be formulated genre in that "the smoking gun" evidence is unacceptable in some manner if it were done in a traditional format.
While I know it makes me sound like the old guy yelling "get off my lawn, with your hap-hop* disco music", would not a more serious decorum in presentation give a better foundation to presenting a point to the public at large?
