Deliberately rewriting my comments to prove it can be done only demonstrates just how specious the cynicism directed towards the film really is.

At the end of the day, I think that what this really boils down to is how people feel about Invisible Children trying to use social media to promote a cause.

Dead on there. I do agree with the idea of making it a national (American that is) concern, and thereby getting “justice” served out.
However, the video really didn’t sit well with me. I felt the maker/presenter was incredibly self-obsessed and in some ways was using the campaign to make himself famous/important.
“Look at me, I’m so good to everyone, I’ve got such an adorable little son”, it was all very PR and trying too hard.
