CBS Streaming Video Clips Removed From RedLasso. ARRGHHHG!!!!!!




So this week Bishop TD Jakes' daughter, Sarah Jakes, got married and was featured on Entertainment Tonight. I caught the segment on TV, but many people didn't so they went searching hot and heavy for video of Sarah Jakes' wedding online...





Yeah, notice how that clip is unavailable now?


I did some digging, and turns out all of CBS' videos that I tried to play from RedLasso are now unavailable!


So of course I go poking around ETOnline.com to see what video CBS has put up to satisfy their online searches for the wedding of Bishop TD Jakes' daughter -- and of course, as of this writing, find NONE!


This is why the network TV execs making these decisions suck.


CBS is not a pay-cable TV station, it's a free TV station that should readily offer clips of its TV segments just as readily online as they do off-line, on TV.


For it to be 2008 and for a network like CBS to not understand this is beyond belief.


It's not like it's 1998 -- with some folks still asking: What's the Internet?


Let's pray CBS gets smart and finally realizes the advertising revenue they could be making -- and the online customers they could be satisfying while they're busy trying to keep their popular clips OFF the net, WITHOUT putting the popular clips on the net themselves.




Anyway, for the lastest RedLasso info, read on...

Wow! I had no idea that this had taken place. Thanks for the info. I was shocked even more to know that she was old enough to get married. I was at The Potter's house what seems like only a couple of years ago and she was just a girl. Truth is, that visit was before I got married and I just celebrated my 5th anniversay. In fact, it was before my now husband and I started dating--and we dated for 2 years before we got married; so now I'm up to at least 7 years ago. My, how time flies! Thanks again!

That is funny, I thought all the networks were scrambling to be on the net. Not trying to keep themselves off. The viewers have left their tvs and if you want their attention you better be on the net, and popular clips is one of the best ways to do this.

I get so irritated when they take videos off like that. Maybe one day they'll realize...

It is only a matter of time before people will need to embrace the internet and what it can do. Otherwise the business will just go down and down. I am sure you can find that video elsewhere too.

this video looks like just another way to gain attention like many others which keep popping up every now and then. Isn't it so?

yes its quite a surprising decision on cbs' part... just like what you said, cbs is free tv, i really couldn't understand what they are trying to achieve here...
