The left-leaning commentator BadEmpanada has published a video exploring VisualPolitik, the current affairs network that uploads seemingly objective geopolitical analyses in Spanish and English to YouTube with a tech-savvy, hispter audience in mind. If you subscribe or search for political content on the Google platform you will almost certainly have encountered some of the channel’s output and assumed that this was the work of a handful of politically-engaged individuals, including the main presenter, Simon Whistler. In reality the British host is simply a former YouTuber who has become a regurgitating talking head for a wide range of fairly anodyne online channels. In the case of VisualPolitik the real power behind the curtain lies with a centre-right media company based in Spain that has disguised its carefully packaged neoliberal propaganda on YouTube as a series of snappy, outwardly non-partisan guides. Perhaps a better name for the channel would be Caveat Emptor?
