Time Warner: YouTube's Lex Luthor

Via Social Media Club, Time Warner is busted for cheating on YouTube. The video alleges that Time Warner created a mass of subscribers to the Superman channel to increase the visibility for its DVD. I haven’t yet checked out the Superman channel myself, but if this guy’s on the money, it is a great case study for what not to do with social media.

    Time Warner / AOL is one of the worst companies in existence. No smart web person or musician, or Blog Media Network mogul (heh: Jason Calacanis) will go near them.
    Jason resigned. I don’t blame him.

    It’s a bird, it’s a plane…no, it’s BS.

    D: I tracked-back to you on this one…did you not get it on your side? Just curious if the issue is on my side.
    Well, whatever side, have a happy Turkey Day. Don’t buy Superman (not that you would).
