More Execs Bring the Hate for YouTube

Fresh off the Viacom slap, NBC Universal's Jeff Zucker and News Corp.'s Rupert Murdoch lined up to take their shots at GooTube.


Zucker whines that "YouTube needs to prove that it will implement its filtering technology across its online platform. It's proven it can do it when it wants to." It sounds strange, considering NBC has an official deal with YouTube, but not when you consider how wishy-washy NBC has been, pulling clips not officially uploaded by the channel.

Murdoch's criticism is more of the same old, same old: "How do you monetize it?" It's still the question du jour for sure. Then again YouTube's founders, who each walked away with over $320 million seem pretty monetized.
