TV JUNKIES & PROPAGANDISTS BTFO!
Fewer and fewer people trust the mainstream media every day thanks to its unapologetic narrative creation and it’s obvious, yet not confessed to, bias. Slowly but surely, many mainstream media outlets have had to cut back on staff, the most recent of which include Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post.
However, nothing has highlighted just how awful it is for the mainstream media than a recent realization that was had by YouTube’s most subscribed to channel, PewDiePie.
Felix Kjellberg, more popularly known as the famous/infamous PewDiePie, has a “news” show on his channel he calls PewNews. On initial watching, it looks more like a satirical news show, and in a way it is, but Kjellberg actually talks about things happening around the world. Here’s an example of the latest video.
A Reddit user noted on the r/pewdiepiesubmissions subreddit that PewDiePie gets more viewers for his news show than Vox and posted a meme along with it.
Upon viewing Vox’s YouTube channel, I noticed that the vast majority of their videos get somewhere around half a million views, while every now and again you’ll see some go beyond one or two million.
PewDiePie’s videos average in the six million range no matter what video he releases, with some videos even going so far as 12 to 14 million.
In terms of prime time programming averages, Fox News took first place 2.439 million viewers, MSNBC was second among the cable news networks with 1.835 million, and CNN third with 1.119 million.
This means that PewDiePie’s Pew News is the most watched news program, outpacing that of all cable news networks prime time programming combined.
