    Another reason not to like YouTube (not that I needed one). Now you can buy fake views of your fake news.

    Apparently $14 will buy 1000 fake views of your video, plus a bonus of 100 "likes". But how do you find people who sell fake YouTube views? It's simple, because their ads appear on Google... another company that is owned by Alphabet, just like YouTube.

    Interesting article:

    Right or wrong, I'll continue to use YouTube for How-To and Instructional videos. It's a great resource.

    I stretch after running in front of my TV, which links to Youtube. I have become addicted to this guy, who hunts rat and muskrat with mink and a dog. This is an episode from a couple years ago where he begins to train a "crazy" mink. He is "Joseph Carter the Mink Man".
