Ironic that such a pithy speech is carried on You Tube, another new Google subsidiary. Talk about monopolistic media consolidation...

So, who will "turn off" Google?

The irony wasn't lost on me. That said, I'll take YouTube over "normal" TV anytime.

Heh, you'll get my TV from me when you pry the remote out of my cold, dead fingers. ;o)

I actually trust "the Tube" over YouTube. YouTube treats everything as equally significant and equally entertaining, whether it's the beheading of a kidnapped journalist or a cute kitten. That flattening of meaning and significance is the biggest and most dangerous lie of all.

Yeah, but it's up to the viewer to figure it out. The Tube doesn't necessarily allow (or have time for) that luxury.
