Beijing funds British YouTubers to further its propaganda war
It’s real money too:
Critics have claimed that pro-China YouTubers are benefiting from ad-revenues in part driven by an alleged Chinese Communist Party network of bots that promote videos supporting the state.
The Barretts have nearly 200,000 subscribers, and have produced 255 videos since the start of last year, gaining a combined 16.5 million views. Their videos are thought to earn them about £53,000 a year through advertising alone, according to analysis by Social Blade, a website that monitors social media channels such as YouTube.
And if you are in favour of that Curajus State then why wouldn’t you be willing to advertise for a very Curajus State indeed?
