Today, little Zach discovers "copyright infringment."

"Only FOX, I swear. While the video of Olbermann a few weeks back was taken down by Google Video because they had squirreled out that I was not the creator of the content, YouTube had let me use news videos from various sources with no problems."


... I see .... His glorious leader, Herr Loietnant Olberst Olbermann's video got removed. *moment of silence for little Zach* ... and now, another violation of a video site had bitten him in the ass. Poor little Zach. What. EVER. Is. He. To. DO?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??????!?!?!?!?!?


Why, whine and biatch about it on his blog.


Poor little Zach.


/"they had squirreled out that I was not the creator of the content," .... Noooooooooooooooooo?

"It's as if they're trying to erase the actuality of it in order to facilitate their talking heads' distorting it."

Unpossible, the only reasonable explanation is a genuine interest in maintaining the integrity of their broadcast material.

There are currently 1,507 videos hosted on YouTube with "Fox News" in the title.

Ask yourself why Fox wasn't trying to protect all their copyrighted material? Why would they start and end with just this interview?

Is coincidence off the table as an excuse ?
 
2006-09-25 11:03:27 PM  
TGOT: the difference seems to be that Google themselves determined that the content was copyrighted. Here, FOX themselves actually went through YouTube, specifically searching for this one video and reporting every instance they found of it.
 
2006-09-25 11:27:46 PM  
Well,it is their material, they probably want people to watch their channel so they get the revenue. They do have it available on their site so it's not like they're trying to stifle it.

jarrett: 'Ask yourself why Fox wasn't trying to protect all their copyrighted material?'

Oh, YES! Fox is CENSORING!!!!

Oh, no. This is no big deal.

At all.

I just found it on Google with no problem.

The blogs will keep it going. It won't go away no matter how badly the righties want it to do so.

Luckily I downloaded it from crooksandliars.com, where you can still get it
here! (sfw) just scroll down a little.

Do they have the whole thing, where Clinton mentions the failure of the Bush admin to do anything, or only the part where he 'flies off the handle?'
 
2006-09-26 01:11:46 AM  
I dunno. Seems to me that Clinto sort of did a meltdown. he was certainly not ***Presidential***. More like a whiner and excuse maker. If I was a righty I'd LIKE having that video spread far and wide, since - to any thinking person - it makes Clinton look and sound like a world class asshole.

Any idea why the_gospel_of_thomas is being even less civil, coherent, and mature than usual? It's like he's 8 years old and I just told him I'm not buying him a pony.

This is selective enforcement of copyright. It might be in FOX's right, but that doesn't actually MAKE it right. It's a very literal case of sending this interview down the memory hole. They remove all uncut instances of it they can find, then cut it, edit it, and spin it into a Clintonian "Dean Scream." A former president rebuking a hack for trying to railroad him into saying he was soft on terror turns into a crazy evil liberal getting red in the face at a mild-mannered interviewer.
 
2006-09-26 01:17:18 AM  
lmao, fox has been doing everything they can to portray it as "Clinton loses control". They are in full damage control mode. All I saw was a verbal beatdown by Clinton of a scared Wallace. He called out Faux News and Bush all in one tirade. How many of you only wish you had the same opportunity.
 
2006-09-26 01:19:05 AM  
"Fox News" is an oxymoron.

If anything it shows how blatantly biased Fox News has always been. Clinton had to be stern to get his point across so he wouldn't constantly be interrupted. He got his point across despite Wallace's best efforts.

/not that an idtiot couldn't realize how biased Fox is

If Wallace started on me with that crap, I would have gotten irritated pretty fast, too. Didn't give him a chance to respond, just shoved a hive, horribly-framed "question" in Clinton's face. Chris Wallace basically just gave Clinton the terrorism equivalent of "Are you still beating your wife?"

All Clinton did was call Wallace on his shiat and point out the (please pardon the play on words) elephant in the room.

That is amazingly clever! You should look into getting that put on a t-shiat, or maybe a bumper sticker.

When I read t_g_o_t's Weeners here (without noticing the name attached, at first), my immediate reaction was "...what's wrong with that guy?" After glancing at the poster's name: "Ah, that explains it."

He's still reeling from an 'owning' over in the Rumsfeld thread in the Politics section...

I do believe TGOT Godwined the thread with his Boobies.
 
2006-09-26 01:22:33 AM  
I'm somewhat surprised that this is the only thread on the subject in the fark main page. The only others I found were on the politics link, but since they're hidden so far in there, they don't have too many links.

I mean, what's going on? This subject of Clinton vs Fox is FLAMEALICIOUS!
 
2006-09-26 01:22:39 AM  
Simple solution: Get a cardboard cutout of Chris Wallace, and have Clinton redo his part of the interview pretending his tormentor is three-dimensional. Interested websites could play the non-Fox version as much as they wanted.
 
2006-09-26 01:22:44 AM

While I am critical of what former President Clinton did in office and what he has done since, I have to say that I was very immpressed with what he said.

It may have been angry and not diplomatic, but goddamnit what the hell was the "Path to 9/11"? It was a spin job and I am glad the people in the Clinton administration defended themselves.

/No to Hillary in '08.

2006-09-26 01:24:50 AM  
While watching Mr. Clinton getting all up in the grill of the reporter, I felt his message was calculated in advance, defensively presented and well-rehearsed - wouldn't be the first time. His forward-leaning posture crossed the line when he touched Mr. Wallace while being a pseudo-credible alpha dog.

/too many hyphens?
/is disingenuous a word?
 
2006-09-26 01:24:58 AM  
Oooooh! And they posted it on their own website. Those bastages! Trying to hide the truth out in the open! Bastages I say!
 
2006-09-26 01:25:04 AM  
anybody have a transcript of that video anyways? i'd rather read it
 
2006-09-26 01:25:18 AM  
well...i'm able to watch it still....
 
2006-09-26 01:25:33 AM  
The Clinton Interview was awesome, it really put some things in place, including Mr. Wallace. This should be looked at as a wake-up call. Period.

Now, I don't have a problem with copyrighted material being prevented from spreading for free. That's fine. But it only makes sense in the case where its circulation determines the creator's income.

Can we quit it already with these "alternative" views to copyright?

1997: "You can download whatever mp3s you like... as long as you delete them in 7 days"
2000: "Oh it's okay to use Napster to get copyrighted music... as long as you don't use it to make a profit."
2003: "It's all right to download copyrighted video and music... as long as you consider buying it afterwards."
2006: "It's all right to violate an individual's copyright... as long as they weren't going to profit off of it anyway."

Copyright is copyright is copyright. It's really quite simple.

... I see .... His glorious leader, Herr Loietnant Olberst Olbermann's video got removed...


10 points for the analysis of the infringment, but minus several million points for comparing the bunch of talking heads not supporting the administration to the cogs of the German fascist politik. It just doesn't make any sense.

Basically, it comes down to the fact that many sheep are more then eager to follow their lost sheep herder off of the cliff he is leading them to.

I blame it on the blinders the sheep voluntarily put on that prevents them from seeing any other direction, other then straight forward, that the sheep herder is directing them.

The blinders are very convenient. The sheep don't have to think a thing. Just follow the sheep herder...

"Funny...the video seems to still be there. People are fast on the uploading, they are.

Try and view some of the clips, maybe you got lucky but every single one I clicked on on YouTube brought up a "This video has been removed" message.
 
2006-09-26 01:27:23 AM  
Whatever... Maybe there is some sort of quasi-political angle that can concevably be raised in this case but I don't really care. I'm just sick of these bloggers and 'news' sites who just steal content from other people and then edit it to add their website logo in the corner. How about you create your own content instead of just being a thief and regurgitating other people's work.

That Clinton interview was cool though.

2006-09-26 01:30:13 AM  
Copyright is copyright is copyright. It's really quite simple.

Agreed. But you don't think that it's at least a teensy bit interesting that Fox is targeting THAT specific piece of footage? They don't want it circulating because it didn't have the reaction they planned. They wanted to show Clinton as some crazed lunatic but it backfired and Fox came out looking like the dunderheads. Of course they want this stricken from the record books! Conservatives love to rewrite history.
 
2006-09-26 01:31:51 AM  
Clinton in a liar. Even his CIA man in his dipsh*t administration claimed Clinton never authorized them to kill or capture Osama. Clinton is still trying to lie a legacy into being. If I would have been Wallace I would have slapped that silly POS into next week in front of everyone.
