This is interesting. If the video didn't show "celebration" then the post wasn't actually lying. It did not attempt to pass off blatant falsifications as fact. It was however blatantly embellished by the poster's personal bias. It is no different than the labeling the "tea parties" as violent mobs and then viewing the video evidence of a dozen smiling grandmothers waving poorly constructed protest signs. Spin happens every day in politics and journalism. It is just opinion. So "opinion police" in action here?
A part of the content posted there is obviously misleading. The latest example was a post describing the israeli protest in front of Turkey embassy in Israel as being a "celebration" of the recent attack. Not that i dont think this may be possible but it was not what the video depicted. The website staff was informed and did nothing to remediate the error. This is only one example.
Greetings, Okay guys, today I have some disturbing news. We just received an email from Google. They accused Disclose.tv of showing 'inappropriate content' and therefore will stop serving Google Adsense ads to Disclose.tv in the very near future. Frankly, it was just a matter of time for this to happen. As you all can imagine video hosting is a VERY EXPENSIVE endeavour. Furthermore Google Adsense is the only ad network that serves ads with an acceptable CPC (cost per click). And the income we were abel to generate with Google just covered our monhtly costs. All other easily accessible networks (like Adbrite etc) pay junk statut CPCs. Premium networks will not accept Disclose.tv at all. This is not about size (i.e. number of videos/pages served), no WE ARE HUGE, but again because of the content presented on Disclose.tv. We tried that already. Thus, like Wikileaks recently, we are on the brink of a little disaster here and have to find a workable solution for the community and for Disclose.tv to continue the mission. The owner of Disclose.tv is willing to provide full cover of all costs for a certain period going forward, but a solution to at least cover the costs for the hosting is required ASAP. In light of this the team and I have to ask all of you, the DTV community, how to proceed going forward. We know from other sites that donations do not work as they are not plannable at all. Thus, the a way out to free us from the content control and censorship imposed by ad networks is some form of subscription model (Paypal?) to access only some video content on Disclose.tv or some additional new features for an absolute acceptable yearly price (i.e. 3 Starbuck coffees). Your feedback, ideas and comments are highly appreciated. Kind regards, Lukas Disclose.tv Site Admin
