    I’d be careful with that argument since it can be turned around easily. Ahem…

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

    Now I may have a completely skewed understanding of the word “cynicism”, however I always considered PM to be one of the most cynical posters on the site….

    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. And I think some people respond to it so poorly because they just don’t want to see it plastered all over Facebook and Twitter every time they log on.

    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.
