A YouTube conservative program clickbait generator named Steven Crowder, made the claim in a video that, “I showed my footage too all of the national and local news on the campus and none of them had any interest. None!” Steven Crowder said this in a video he posted on YouTube. Had he not screeched in a high-pitched voice a second time “nobody cared” I might have let this pass, but this was too much for me.
I’m not a fan of most “YouTubers” because they end up designing videos to become clickbait in order to generate the highest numbers of views, which generates the greatest amount of revenue for them. This results in a model where some truly terrible videos generate a lot of cash for some disgusting people. I’m not saying Crowder is necessarily one of these people, I’ve never heard of him until two days ago.
But at the University of Utah protest on Wednesday, I was very interested in Steven Crowder’s footage and story. I was at the protest at the University of Utah Campus to get a glimpse of the lengths groups like Antifa would go to to disrupt speaker Ben Shapiro and his guests. So when I asked Crowder for some details on the story that he said the “main-stream media wasn’t interested in.” I was looking forward to an interview. But he wasn’t interested in anything other than getting photographs with fans, and telling everyone that, “Not gay Jared, was the real hero.” providing some kind of footage to the police to help with an arrest. He completely ignored my request. As can be seen in this video.
I’m glad that Crowder and his team busted the efforts of potential violence by some Antifa members. Way to go guys! But what is borderline disgusting is someone who has a preconceived narrative that the “The media has no interest in my story.” is willing to go to such lengths to support that narrative, despite the fact that a local magazine is very interested in listening to him and sharing his footage.
I really doubt Mr. Crowder that you received more likes or views due you you pretending that nobody was interested.
