Mel Ve, the ruddy-toned conspiritainment huckster behind the Conscious Consumer Network, has shown herself to be just a tiny bit thin-skinned. A few weeks ago we revealed that CCN, which Mel touts as “honest journalism” (leading us to wonder whether she understands the meaning of either of those words), charges its broadcasters a healthy fee to spew their bilge into the world.
On her CCN website, Mel says:
A new international media network has been created which begins the process of bridging the gap between the Alternative Media and the Main Stream, whilst creating a whole new paradigm of truth driven, innovative and interactive media.
And in the promotional literature our mole received when they enquired about setting up a webcast with CCN, Mel emphasised her “hatered” of “DELIBERATE DISINFORMATIONISTS”:
So imagine our shock and horror when we discovered that Mel’s “TRUTH & SOLUTIONS based media” has been engaging in a bit of jiggery-pokery with regard to the number of likes and dislikes its broadcasts receive on YouTube.
Check out those thumbs-downs in the lower left corner. Now you see them…
…and now you don’t!
Those nasty thumbs-downs have disappeared, leaving behind only the rather tragic viewing numbers. Next thing we know, Mel will start watching her clients’ drivel herself, just to bump those views up a couple of notches.
After all, the client is always right. And even when they’re not, they’re paying the rent.
