I use wordpress to publish this blog. I do not use wordpress’ hosting service, which is mostly free.
I don’t know who controls wordpress, which I think started open source, but they are clearly participating in some sort of campaign to purge advertiser unfriendly content. I do believe they have some ad service to make money on their hosting service platform, but I’m not certain.
I pay Automattic to host faketube. Is faketube in danger? Possibly.
This blog is hosted on an unrelated web host that’s been reliable and affordable for a long time. I highly recommend them.
My best guess is that the Alex Jones types are losing market share and eyeballs, and this is another pathetic attempt to get the mass’ attention to follow their controlled opposition.
Either people are getting hip to the concept of controlled op and cointel pro, or they are just not caring about any aspect of the media and their fakery, especially as promoted by Trump.
From a blog since purged from wordpress hosting:
Posted: July 30, 2018
Recently the Alex Jones Channel posted 105 videos between 1 and 6 days ago that got a total of 1,879,944 views. The total average was only 17,904 views per video, and only 313,324 total views per day.
Over 300,000 daily views isn’t bad, but it’s not the millions he was bragging about. And he got those views by means of posting about 17.5 videos per day, therefore much of that number actually represents the very same people watching multiple videos.
The 105 videos during that period had view-counts ranging from 2,867 to 114,184, with only 5 reaching over 50,000.
That means his gets about 1 popular video per day that hits about 50,000 unique views, but the remaining 250,000 views per day is a soft number that may include many of those same viewers and other duplicates by the same people watching multiple videos.
So Alex Jones has to make over 17 videos per day in order to reach a realistic estimate of about 100,000 unique viewers, whereas somebody like PewDiePie only has to make 1 short video per day to reach about 4 million unique viewers.
In other words, of the estimated 30 million people who visit youtube every day, about 13% of them will watch the comedian Pewdiepie, while only about 0.3% of them will watch the newsman Alex Jones.
Of course, this analysis is just from a limited sample so it might not be completely accurate.
Here is the sample list of videos used as data: Read the rest of this entry »
