YouTube-ing the Elections

The guy who posted the anti-Hillary, Big Brother/Apple 1984 edit, says ominously:

“There are thousands of other people who could have made this ad, and I guarantee that more ads like it–by people of all political persuasions–will follow,” says Phil de Vellis, the creator of the ad, on the blog after he was named in a previous post.

Vellis, from Blue State Digital, the company that works for the Barack Obama campaign, resigned from his position after the confession. Apparently, he did it on his own, and had no hand in the Obama account.

Undoubtedly, YouTube will be the platform of choice for smear campaigns and dirty tactics in the next elections.
