VIDEOCRACY 4.30.08: The Fort Bragg YouTube Video
BY Dan Manatt | Wednesday, April 30 2008
After weeks of gotchas from the e-paparazzi, which seemed to suggest Web Video is the medium only of the gaffe, along comes a Web Video exposé that restores faith in the new citizen medium.
This YouTube video – http://youtube.com/watch?v=B4P-camUjjk – exposed the deplorable conditions of the Fort Bragg barracks where soldiers returning from Afghanistan live. Turns out that even when returning home, our soldiers have been living in Hell holes thanks to intolerable neglect.
And America might have never known of this intolerable treatment of our soliders – but for the efforts of a digital citizen and their a YouTube account.
