You could go to odysee.com instead (also based on the LBRY blockchain). Or even.... make your own based on the LBRY blockchain! That's the beauty of it, there is no one Google (or Fox/CNN/whoever) controlling what you see and what is or isn't "allowed". If you don't like it, you can even roll your own. So how is that different than an self imposed echo chamber? 25 minutes ago, IronFilm said: Please share screen shots! This is what I see (and from memory, this looks pretty similar-ish to the random collection of videos when I first visited LBRY.tv): The other problem with this separate from this site in particular is the whole “recommendation” platform and incentive these platforms have to keep you viewing on their platform. People end up getting recommended content that doesn’t give them a diverse range. Google is the worst. 28 minutes ago, IronFilm said: Or even.... roll your own platform! As I said before, this is the beauty of LBRY So I can roll my own and have it select only videos about a singular agenda I might want to promote (say kicking out all immigrants) and then advertise this website as “news”. This is exactly the problem with the current situation. People live in fantasy bubbles and can’t even agree on a consistent reality. White is black. No black is white. No the sky is up. Sky is down. Mix in partisanship and hate (that is actively prompted) and it leads to violence in the most unstable. newfoundmass 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
