Zucker To YouTube: Drop Dead!

Corporate chromedome Jeff Zucker wastes no time in establishing himself and NBC as the aging dinosaurs that they are. The Financial Times reports:

“YouTube needs to prove that it will implement its filtering technology across its online platform. It’s proven it can do it when it wants to,” Mr Zucker said, referring to the site’s controls to block pornography and hate speech. He added: “They have the capability. The question is whether they have the will.”

So, as NBC and the other nets continue to lose younger viewers, Zucker wants to make sure that SNL skits stay where they belong.
