eevBLAB #48 – The end of Tech Journalism on Youtube?

UPDATE: Someone has paid for a massive amount of Dislikes on this and my other BattBump video!
My previous video on the BattBump Kickstarter has been flagged for Privacy and may be removed.
If this is allowed, it’s surely the end for journalistic history and reporting of public campaigns and story containing personal information that the owner deliberately made public.

NOTE: I’ve tried the Youtube blurring tool so you can realise how annoying this could be if journalists were forced to remove names from existing new stories. (The tool also sucks and is buggy, as you can see in the video)
