'Fiction is outperforming reality': how YouTube's algorithm distorts truth

It was one of January’s most viral videos. Logan Paul, a YouTube celebrity, stumbles across a dead man hanging from a tree. The 22-year-old, who is in a Japanese forest famous as a suicide spot, is visibly shocked, then amused. “Dude, his hands are purple,” he says, before turning to his friends and giggling. “You never stand next to a dead guy?” ... orts-truth

This is a really good article, imo.

Yeah! And what is it doing to our politics?

Remember that H A Goodman creepy crawler from Huffington Post during the election?

He wrote a yea Bernie, boo Hillary article every day or so. Video from :

Apparently he actually likes Trump. :|

He posted that heap of crap 23 hours ago. Since then he's posted 5 more mounds of crap, which if an insane nutter watched all of them would take up 3 hours of their day. He's got 104,497 subscribers.

I came across that first video through that algorithm feed mentioned in the OP article yesterday when I was watching some Fox video to see what they were saying about that "POTUS wants to know everything we do" debunked email flap.

In bringing up that H A Goodman nutter's YouTube page to get that video link to post here as a bad example that algorithm feed lined up more dreadful insane nutter videos for me to watch: :shock:

Yeah, H.A. Goodman is my reminder that Cassandra Fairbanks has company.

They've been through a very similar warp field, it looks like to me.

I was looking over his crap at Huffington Post. Ugh, the stupid, it burns.

I notice a very familiar pattern. He says he's not pro Trump, but yet constantly defends him from any Democratic attacks. Because, of course, they (and esp. HRC) were worse.

Funny, that.
