Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

It's not often that a network news provider takes flak for enforcing copyrights.  But the CNBC interview of Warren is just a bit different.  You see, Warren took CNBC staff to the woodshed, and CNBC followed up by issuing "Cease & Desist" notices to Youtube posters and others for spreading the video.  

How did it look?

CNBC looked like a sore loser this week when it told YouTube to take down on “copyright grounds” videos from a Squawk Box interview with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). She was on to defend the 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act, which would tighten regulations on banks, that she’s co-sponsoring with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and others. She forcefully, and gleefully, swatted away challenges from CNBC’s Brian Sullivan, Joe Kernan, and Amanda Drury. A clip went viral — with more than 700,000 views — after it was posted by video aggregator Upworthy as well as on Warren’s YouTube site. “It’s maybe the best example of the sort of matter-anti-matter reaction that happens when someone who actually knows some history and policy makes first contact with a gaggle of ignorant CNBC yakkers,” Talking Point Memo‘s Josh Marshall wrote.
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

CNBC's response to the spread of their clip generated quite a bit of pushback for the network:

UPDATE: CNBC pulled the video for "copyright violations" from Sen. Warren's YouTube channel. They have the longer segment here at their site.

UPDATE 2: CNBC reached out to comment, and had the following to say:

"Again, we think that the clip featuring Senator Warren is well worth watching which is why it has been available to view in multiple locations on CNBC.com since its original posting. The original, copyrighted video clip, like all others on CNBC.com, can be embedded on any third party site through our video player."

Unfortunately, their embed system doesn't work on mobile and tends to break sites, so I've made them aware of the issue. They have graciously uploaded the clip to their YouTube channel to accommodate us and you can watch it below. I start it from when the original clip started, but you can rewind and hear everything Sen. Warren had to say prior to clip start by clicking on the start of the timeline.

CNBC's move to limit video access to their site - which doesn't work on mobile, as well as many tablets, etc. came across as overly petty, and the rest of the news media is now calling them out on it.

The problem with these kind of blanket attempts to stop spread of information doesn't really work.. and if you've missed it before, it's time to take a look.

CNBC isn't taking it sitting down, they are out there, fighting the image that they were beat.

But as far as I'm concerned, you know you're beat when you go out of the way to limit people's ability to see it happen.
