The “Katrina Myth” has been the #4 top rated video in the “News and Politics” category on YouTube for the last 12 hours.
That means the levee issue is right up there on the top line with stories about the Democratic convention and McCain’s choice of Governor Palin as his running mate.
It’s also the #10 top favorite video, and the #14 top rated video in ALL categories.
YouTube’s counter, which is notoriously slow, shows 23,146 views in the last 24 hours.
Thanks to everyone who helped in this effort.
If you haven’t had a chance to support the video yet, there is still time.
The goal here is to keep the levee issue on the top of YouTube’s consciousness at least so that it might be picked up by a major news service.
That way instead of hearing how corrupt New Orleans people are, or how doomed the city is, people might learn that if the FEDERAL levees were simply built the way we all already PAID with our tax dollars for them to be built, New Orleans would be facing a hard time, but
not a second inundation by flood waters.
We’re getting a lot of international interest in the video and the comments from international viewers are all the same:
“How is it possible that the US treats its citizens this way?” They are genuinely baffled.
Anyway, if you’re in a position to (i.e. not packing up your belongings and heading out of town), keep pushing it.
Bizarrely (to me at least), this video seems to be the only source of publicly available information that lays out the levee situation in a clear, concise and comprehensive manner.
Here it is. Please let people know about it…
