This was posted on 8/22 but worth mentioning. Latta got the chance to answer questions on healthcare from Internet users in the following video, which was moderated by YouTube.

Karate-chopping judge candidate?

Thought someone would (or wouldn't) appreciate this video clip of local judge candidate Mark Davis breaking bricks in super slow-mo on YouTube. The clip is titled "Attorney Breaking Bricks Slow Motion" and you can go to:

AP threatens affiliate for embedding video their site

 The Associated Press has proven it really has no clue on what it is doing. Yesterday it threatened a radio station for embedding the content from AP's YouTube site on their own site. When the radio station manager asked AP if it is a crime to embed the video when they allowed it on the YouTube site, they had no answer but said the videos must come down. If that was not bad enough, the radio station was an AP affiliate. No wonder people are leaving the Associated Press left and right.

YouTube: a reason to have fun this election

Ok, I am not usually a MTV news fan, but they did a writeup on how YouTube will not allow people to forget gaff's this year. At least someone is having fun :)

Video site scooped the journalism star

Toledo's bad Youtube behavior: Abusing homeless, impersonating cops, vandalism, the whole 9 yards, and lots of questions

I frequently scour the Internet looking for what shows up about this area and what people are saying. On Friday evening I came across one of the most disturbing Youtube videos I have seen and it was made here in Toledo, most likely by a group on the East Side. Seeing the videos made me sick and wondered why people would do such a thing.

Is Jon Stainbrook ruining his trust?

For those of you who are on "the Net" and in tune with politics, you know Jon recently posted some videos of Lucas County Party Executive Director Joanne Wack where she was talking in a conversation, took snippets of the conversation and posted it on Youtube. Apparently there is 45 minutes of it, although the clips that have been posted really don't make any shocking revelations.
