revealing comment from the article's comment section:

"Manipulating numbers is what the music industry does best! A record that is certified platinum does not mean it sold a million copies; it means a million copies were SHIPPED to stores. I used to work at a Musicland group store (when they were still in business) during the heyday of CDs and many of these multi-platinum records were stacked on palettes in the warehouse and overstock was sent out to regional warehouses to collect dust."

I know this is probably obvious to many people, but I am just SO TIRED of this rigged bullshit game...

And so again, the archetype of greed plays out the fable as "Midas Kills The Goose That Lays The Golden Eggs" as here.
What do you guess, if the artists ever got a penny for all the "hits" it would be a big surprise.
 Quoting: anon again 19554329


Too much of a good thing.
A group of guys went to Chernobyl. In the ghost city they found a cash machine with coins. They decided to each take one coin. One of them was very greedy, thinking he could sell them, and took a handful. After a while, the greedy one started to feel symptoms, but didn't know the cause. He died. The rest finally figured that it was the coins, but it was too late.

I just find it ridiculous that people are all over a song such as Gangnam style, and have absolutely no idea what he's saying.

All the entertainment industries are the same. But YT fixing the counts seems a bit suspicious especially when they cooperated with these industries for so many years.

Take a look at how these industries treated the torrent/download services.

I first saw the video about two weeks ago. I noticed people making reference to the word "Gangnam", so I purposely maintained my ignorance (a personal act of rebellion) - not an easy task, but eventually I got sucked in.

The video service deleted more than 2 billion fake video views in the channels of Universal, Sony, and RCA, according to Daily Dot. The decision apparently was made when YouTube found out that the companies were using view building services hired from sites such as Fiverr to create video views that never existed.

Sony/BMG's was hit the hardest with views dropping from a total of more than 850 million to just 2.3 million. RCA declined by 159 million views to a total of 120 million. Universal lost more than 1 billion views and now stands below 6 billion.

 Quoting: Novalogics


Because your sources are so limited, and you have been conditioned to know what exactly pop-culture is and where it comes from, it is the MSM that makes you think everyone else is into that shit, and while a many tards are, not as many as the whole amount of tards there are, those who have to work and play the rat race. The tards who don't give a fuck are still tards, and then there are those who don't know because they don't give a fuck, they are not tards at all.

Unfortunately i have not yet graduated to 'one who does not give a fuck because he does not know', just 'a tard who doesn't give a fuck'.

They manipulate you man, search Youtard for politician's social secrets brainwash manipulation.. You see the politicians do it, the media does it, you think everyone is the same but you are different. Not so.

Yeah, they did that to my brother and a lot of other people I know and have read about got their entire channels deleted for sharing too many messages and trying to advertise their stuff. All the views were real and they weren't "cheating." Merely using the "share video" tool youtube uses in its own interface...

My bro only had about 900 subscribers, so he wasn't anything super big, but there was a lot of work and time he put into it. Then it got yanked just like that. Somehow I didn't get touched though.

But apparently big corporations, labels and acts can mass fraudulent views and not only keep their channels but their partnership and money making ads.
