YouTube Yanks Romney’s Video Over Al Green Song – Leaves Up All Copies of Obama Singing Al Green Song

Allbiz - PWCM - JLA 2012/07/17 14:47:32

YouTube yanked Mitt Romney’s new web video, featuring audio of President Obama singing a few lines from Al Green’s, “Let’s Stay Together,” yesterday. The video was taken down by YouTube via a copyright claim of BMG Rights Management.


According to a release, the video, titled, “Political Payoffs and Middle Class Layoffs,” used news reports to demonstrate that “[i]nstead of working to restore [our] economic security, President Obama is too busy rewarding his biggest donors.”

Perhaps ironically, BMG and Crown/Random House (which published both of Obama’s books, his campaign plan, and Michelle Obama’s new book) are — despite Obama’s concerns about “outsourcing” — all owned by German conglomerate Bertlesmann AG, which bills itself as “the world’s most international media company.”

So it is interesting that the company that pulled down Romney’s web ad shares a German parent company with Obama’s publisher.

According to their Wikipedia entry, “During World War II, Bertelsmann was the biggest single producer of Nazi propaganda.”

However, since You Tube is owned by Google, here comes the left wingnut double standard

    Well, I would have to agree with the top opinion. They all only allow what propaganda they think will benefit the current government and its mindset of destroy this country from within. Its called censorship, and its dishonest as any corrupt person or group of persons could be.

    The hypocrisy of the NAZI leftwingers is astonishing.

    Free speech only applies to those who spew the same leftwing lies as they do.
