I got an email from Simon Owens, who writes the blog Bloggasm and contributes to PBS’s MediaShift. He wrote an article about Robert Greenwald, the filmmaker whose company Brave New Films distributes Michael Moore’s latest documentary Slacker Uprising.
The article and the Brave New Films’ YouTube channel are worth checking out. When Simon wrote the article, the channel had almost 20,000 subscribers. About a month later, that number is close to 26,000. Whether you agree with Greenwald and staff’s political views or not, that increase in subscribers is worth noting. You can imagine the number of forwards and discussions the Brave New Films’ provocative videos created both on the left and right side of the spectrum.
