Broadcast Yourself- and get paid

YouTube to pay popular contributors

So YouTube is to start paying contributors for clips posted on the site as “partners”. This is another “beginning of the end of journalism” scenario. It will be interesting to see if television and other media who rip youtube clips for their own use will also now be charged a fee for this.
Hang on a minute, they’re going to pay university contributors too. Perhaps J-schools should all set up a “channel” on YT, it could help pay for expensive staff and equipment (LOL).
Seriously though, I’m considering setting up a channel for my TV Journ and Online Journ students in second semester. It’s a good way to solve some technical issues about hosting clips on the university webiste.
