You Tube.

How many of you post You Tube videos on Facebook and websites trying to present an cogent argument about economics and politics only to have an ad appear at the beginning that is against what you are trying to present paid for by big money PACs? Isn't it time to fioght back by not using You Tube until after the elections? We don't have the money to match their well financed lies. But one way to fight back is to quit using You Tube. Drive down their advertsing numbers. I may create a petition of sorts to have people who care about facts pledge not to use them and spread their misinformation.

1. I've noticed that, and have started

previewing all posts where I include a YouTube video before posting. Some ads only appear when the video gets imbedded.

3. It must vary according to where viewed.

In the UK I've only come across our own home ads.

4. Yes, I'm sure the ads are targeted in that manner.
