YouTube changes layout, snuffs out political activity?

I'm not sure where to put this, and admittedly it's a bit of a stretch as far as conspiracies go, but hear me out.

Today I noticed that on YouTube when I go to the videos section there is no longer the option on the left side to sort by category. Instead there is a category tab at the top. OK fine. So I can still sort videos by how many views or by rating but can no longer filter by category (like if I only want videos classed as comedy or news).

Clicking on the categories tab at the top, and then the news and politics link on the left it brings me to a page with editor picks only and no way again of sorting by most popular etc. And since anyone who visits YouTube on a regular basis lately knows that Ron Paul videos frequently appear in the top rated/discussed it is shocking to say the least that this front page has but one video about the man and it is titled "Ron Paul is full of S***"

Am I looking too deep into this?

I read that there was a change in leadership at some level at YouTube. I didn't pay it much attention, at the time.

Maybe someone was unhappy that Ron Paul was so prominent there. I put nothing past the manipulators.

OMG! I was waiting for this to happen, I just knew it would! Guess I should have attached my last thread about RP's censorship in the IOWA debates to this thread. Yeah, good luck 'big business' 'corporate America' whomever... Denying us will only make us look deeper and work harder!

I've been awaiting the end of YouTube for a while, basically since I heard of the Google takeover. I have nothing against either company, but since Google is publicly traded it has to follow the rules, its shareholders demand security. So no more copywrited material, no offensive stuff etc.

So what site rises from the ashes? What is the next YouTube, the last bastion of freedom on the internet?

Probably won't be the last time either. Google owns YouTube Remember?

Google also wants to own the internet and what you see on it paid for by every click you make on one of their ads, including the ones here on ATS.

Just another corporation controlled by whomever has the most money.

I see Google getting their collective asses sued into oblivion very soon. People are NOT happy with the street view pictures.

Do no evil...... bollocks!

Really great find, we need to make noise about this somehow. We need to Force Ron Paul down their throats.

This is from the thread I posted on RPs Censorchip in IowaI hope it helps!

my meetup group member for Western Ct sent this
" - I think it would be a good idea for everyone to call these two organizations and ask them why Ron Paul was not invited. I just called and both lines were busy...
Swamp 'em!"

Youtube basically just committed suicide and if they don't change the site back to the way it was before they flat lined they will remain a rotting corpse until the end of time.

Yeah I noticed, I think its the same way Google sorts their videos. Guess they are merging big time.
I used to go to Google video and somehow would find myself on youtube. That was wierd untill I figured out they are the same company now.
