Green's videos on F-You Tube

An alert reader, who chooses to go nameless, notes that our friend Congressman Mark Green has posted his campaign spots and videos on a site called dailymotion.

It's sorta, kinda of a wannabe YouTube. But it has a ways to go.

For one thing, it's littered with porn. Go to the site to watch Mark Green on video talking about his positions, and you could end up learning about all sorts of entirely different positions. (Dennis York, come on down.)

My trusted but undercover correspondent notes:
The vast majority of videos on dailymotion are from France and other European countries. In addition to the large amount of porn on the site, a large number of the videos clearly violate copyright laws in a more blantant way than YouTube because they seem to allow users to upload entire Seinfeld, Simpsons, and South Park epidodes.

There are a lot of sites out there that are trying to copy YouTube and some of them are trying to get traffic by allowing users to upload anything without any oversight whatsoever.

Given the large number of video sharing sites that exists out there (YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, Grouper, Revver, Vimeo, Metacafe, MediaMax, etc) it seems very odd that the Mark Green campaign would choose to upload their videos to one of the more shoddy video sites on the internet.
Here the link to all of Green's videos, but be careful out there.
