After a tweetstorm emerged condemning Donald Trump for not shaking Lester Holt’s hand, Free Press Fail had expose this massive lie by posting real, unedited footage of Donald Trump shaking Lester’s hand.
This was uploaded to YouTube – quickly gathering over 20,000 views over the course of one day:
However, if you search for the video, you will see this:
All of these videos, with one exception, have less views. They are not geared for SEO purposes and were published at roughly the same time as the Free Press Fail Post. This makes it obvious that these videos have been deliberately manipulated to appear first.
There is even a video with a racially charged attack, only soliciting 29 views, that appears on the first page of search results. The title of the video clearly violates Youtube’s Community Guidelines:
“But we don’t support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics.”
