BBC News' Siobhan Courtney on 'planned attack' resulting in Pornographic videos flooding YouTube

I came across this disturbing story on the BBC's website this afternoon after watching the Manchester United-Fulham match at Craven Cottage that resulted in a thrilling 2-2 tie.

I'd gone to the BBC's website to see if there was anything new on
the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland, and there was, though nothing I can embed here yet as I'd hoped.

As of 2 p.m. today, there is not a single American media reference to this story on
Google News, even though the BBC reported this on Thursday, and yes, I know that Google owns YouTube.

Seriously, are there really that many newspaper editors and TV producers on vacation right now that this story could slip through without being ever being mentioned in this country?

Of late, the American news media has needed no prompting to do a story on
YouTube regarding whatever the latest sensation is, the stupider the better so it seems, but this story that parents ought to know about is being smothered.

I never really thought of myself as old-fashioned, per se, but my sense of things is that now as in the past, nobody wants a watchdog that
doesn't bark.

The BBC's Interactive reporter Siobhan Courtney talks about the investigation into the 'video attack'.

Video-sharing website YouTube has removed hundreds of pornographic videos which were uploaded in what is believed to be a planned attack.

The material was uploaded under names of famous teenage celebrities such as Hannah Montana and Jonas Brothers.

Many started with footage of children's videos before groups of adults performing graphic sex acts appeared on screen.

YouTube owner Google said it was aware and addressing the problem.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
