This is an interesting new thing Youtube is doing!! As a librarian I really like the idea of making it clear how the funding of your news source might affect its biases. However, the framing of this message seems itself biased. RT and TeleSUR are "funded by governments"; but the BBC and PBS are "publicly funded." 馃 one of these sounds scarier than the other no? Presumably all four of these are tax-funded

Ah!! Like I suspected. So this is the official youtube channel for TV Mart铆, TV Mart铆 is a U.S. funded television station which airs pro-american propaganda in Cuba. It's literally owned by an agency of the U.S. government and is far closer to state television than PBS

but Youtube hasn't given any notification at all that it is funded by the U.S., like it did with TeleSUR (the Venezuelan and Cuban respond to TV Mart铆)
