YouTube infiltrated by PR strategists

There is no fine line between indymedia and mainstream. There are plenty of specific examples of quality and content differences,etc. But PR-driven politics, fake news, fake everything is everywhere--rumor bombs explode at every turn. Well-circulated political speech has not belonged to everyday citizens of American democracy in a long, long time. But this sort of thing has taken the charade to a new level.
See for example this ABC story on the Exxon-funded PR-YouTube spoof of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth."
