|Some of the people who watched Trutanich TV|
Would you call that: a) pathetic; b) desperate; c) creepy; or d) all of the above?
Did it never occur to Trutanich that, in a city where only 250,000 people bother to vote in local elections, it would be suspicious to generate over 700,000 views? If this guy can't even run his own conspiracy, how is he supposed to spot others'?
Great line from the article: "YouTube recently suspended the accounts of most of the users who left positive comments on the Trutanich videos, citing violations of its policy against commercially deceptive content." Who wants a District Attorney who's "commercially deceptive?"
Hey, you think he'll hire young girls to faint at his concerts? I gather that worked for Sinatra in the early days.
Funniest fact from the article: "To test how easy it is to buy views, The Times paid two online sites a total of $103 to generate views for a nearly two-minute video of paint drying. In eight days, the clip drew 60,000 views."
What's next? Will he hire extras to attend his rallies, or just use cardboard cut-outs?
