(Natural News) Digital advertising is a quandary for many in independent media. We all need to make money, but the sad reality is that most advertising dollars are funneled either through Google or Facebook, with few alternatives.
Streaming video content is an even tougher challenge because the platform of choice for most, and the one that provides the easiest revenue streams, is Google-owned YouTube. Whether we all like it or not, YouTube has the largest audience, and thus offers the greatest opportunities for monetization – that is if you can beat the censors.
Independent media outlets that want to have a sizable revenue stream often have no choice but to rely on Google, YouTube, and Facebook because of the monopolistic stronghold these platforms have over digital advertising. Doing this, however, has consequences.
As all of the major tech platforms are busily rolling out artificial intelligence (AI) systems to control the content that passes through them, it is only a matter of time before this beast system attains total control over the internet. And with alt media still supporting this status quo, the mad rush towards a new world order is only intensifying.
Whether they want to admit it or not, every independent media site that still uses Facebook, Google or YouTube to share content is feeding this beast system and empowering it to seize even more control over the flow of information online. The same is true of Twitter, which has joined the others in censoring content that threatens the establishment narrative.
“When you post videos on YouTube, you are enriching the totalitarian system of Big Tech censorship and tyranny,” warns Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. “That action is unacceptable.”
Why not use Brighteon.com instead?
With alternative sites like Brighteon, BitChute, Spreely, and Parler now readily available, we wonder why more alt media outlets are still messing around with Silicon Valley? We recognize that there is more income potential with the Big Tech platforms for the time being, but eventually, those platforms are going to eliminate alt-media entirely, and then what?
Continuing to do business with the likes of Facebook and YouTube is the opposite of practicing what you preach, especially if you are preaching against the tyranny of the tech giants as they continue to chip away at free speech and the First Amendment.
Congress and the Department of Justice (DOJ) may finally be doing something about this by taking a second look at Big Tech’s immunity protections and filing antitrust lawsuits, but the fact remains that Silicon Valley is up to no good and, if successful, will completely silence the alt-media once and for all.
We simply cannot let that happen, which is why we are encouraging our compatriots to investigate alternatives to the Big Tech platforms to see if they are right for you. You might be surprised how easy it is to transition your video content to Brighteon, for instance, which is constantly being updated to make it more streamlined and user-friendly.
“You can’t denounce Google and then turn around and help them make money,” Adams further writes, noting that a portion of the money Google, YouTube and Facebook make from advertising is funneled back into the coffers of leftist politicians and organizations.
“Join me in reminding all patriots and indy media producers that posting videos to YouTube is enabling evil” he adds. “It is enriching the enemy of humanity and giving them more resources to build AI weapons that will be directed at all of us … Stop funding the beast system. Stop posting videos to YouTube, Facebook or Twitter.”
