'Take Back Web 2.0 for Conservatism'
Topic: NewsBusters

We noticed this paragraph in NewsBusters' promotion for the latest edition of its "NewsBusted" comedy video:

If you're a Myspace user, be sure to visit our MySpace page and add NewsBusted as a friend. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel and help take back Web 2.0 for conservatism by giving us positive ratings and smacking down left-wingers who can't stand that the joke's on them for a change.

How, exactly, does subscribing to a YouTube channel "take back Web 2.0 for conservatism"? And doesn't this emphasis on YouTube as a delivery vehicle put the lie to the MRC's rationale for creating its Eyeblast video site -- that YouTube censors conservatives?

We also found the post's enthusiasm for "smacking down left-wingers" funny in light of NewsBusters' frequent hand-wringing over the alleged "vulgarity and virulence in the liberal blogosphere."

(Oh, and remember, they stole the "NewsBusted" title from us. Just sayin'...)
