The man with the coolest name in the blogosphere, Vint Cerf, reckons that YouTube’s bad press (or PR disasters) are part caused by traditional media coverage, which encourages baddies to abuse YouTube…hmmmmm? Isn’t part of YouTube’s brand appeal that it established itself by accommodating the kind of risque, uncensored content that fuelled its popularity, yet which it now seeks to distance itself from? Not sure you can have it both ways Vint and certainly not a productive media relations strategy to blame the media for your current ills, when they’ve been so helpful to YouTube’s profile building (there wasn’t an advertising budget was there?). A bit like Britney shaving her head then blaming the media for showing pics of it, surely? Cerf’s comments appeared in yesterday’s IT section of The Australian.
