Hey Phil, Longtime viewer of the show. Regarding your QOTD. I’m a 23 year old Interactive Analyst at an Advertising Agency and part of my job is managing the Facebook Campaigns for my clients. Advertisers always get this bad rep and I’m not so much a corporate tool bag since my office has less than 50 people and I wear jeans ever day (that’s gotta count for something, right?). Anywho, as an ‘evil Advertiser’ on facebook, it always scares me that the inclusion of more ads is going to drive away the users; selfishly by leaving me with a big chunk of my day free and my company might notice my usefulness dwindle. but in all fairness, People, for some reason, always feel quite entitled with Facebook and advertising, and I feel when it was about privacy, it was justified, but when you’re not paying for a service, and illegal shit isn’t being done, then just don’t use that service if you don’t like it. it’s that kneejerk reaction of the internet feeling like everything has to be free and not ad-supported, which is just unrealistic; since I know your relationship with advertising and youtube has led to business possibilities long before the flatbrim hat went out of style. I’d like to continue this conversation with you and the team at sourcefed about advertising; be it through a Q&A/AMA or contributing or whatever. Love the show!
Oh My God! He threw that computer! oh wait, it was an Apple. Throw it again, I’ll get my bat.
this just shows how fucked even a well-established system can be. A guy leaving another guy gets away with it because there was ‘no law against it’? Seriously? I’d convict him of assholism.
I am a little torn. I feel like the indecency of that guy is absolutely disgusting. How could he steal all of his things and not at the very least move his leg off the track? But I don’t know if he should be held responsible for the guy who got so shit faced he passed out on train tracks… that guy was asking to get run over by a train. He committed a crime by being a theif, and is just a shitty person for not helping the guy… but I don’t think he should be held responsible for the stupid decision the drunk guy made… If the guy had a heart attack or something happened that wasn’t stupid as fuck then I feel like the theif guy should be charged with a higher crime… at the same time though how would he know if he was drunk or fainted or something… In my mind there is a lot of grey area.
Yes negligence should be a crime, but within reason.
If someone goes to rob someone when they could be helping said person, Negligence.
But if somone could help another person but doesn’t as the situation could be too dangerous I.e unstable building, live electricity etc. Then no, that can’t possibly be classed as negligence.
But this douchebag of the day, definatly a negligent asshole.
I love you Phil!
Hey Phil! You really read these? Anyway I’m personally not going to buy an Macbook no matter how good it is. Why? Because I can get better specs in a windows machine for less (at least with NZ pricing). Their prices are just too damn high for serious consideration at the moment.
Isn’t everyone aware of breast cancer by now? Instead of giving money to “awareness”, give your donations to research and care.
Steve I think youre missing the point. Money was raised for research. BTW love Rave
Ah, sorry. Didn’t read that closely. My comment was more of a carry-over from all the money they spend on turning everything pink at NFL games that could’ve gone to research.
Throwing Fire has returned.
Albeit briefly, and quietly-
but, to hear it again is wonderful. Phil, will you ever again leave comment question of the day answers at the end of the video, with Throwing Fire playing?
I may. It did bring back memories. We just dropped it bc its more work for the editor.
Holy fuck. He replied to me. My existence has been validified. No, that’s not a word, but that’s all that I was able to process. Perhaps I should spend more time on this comment? Nah…
The problem with making general negligence a crime is that a case could be made that this guy allowing himself to get so drunk that he stumbles and passes out on the tracks is negligence of self. So not only would this guy have lost his leg, but would be facing criminal charges as a result.
So you’d definitely have to make it an extension of a pre-existing crime, like you said when you proposed the hypothetical, “If the man died, would the guy be guilty of negligent homicide?” A question to which I would answer, “Yes.” So the crime would have to be “negligent whatever-the-crime-is-that-causes-someone-severe-and-potentially-lethal-harm.”
While I would have helped that man if I had been there, you can play the devil’s advocate by asking why a person should be held legally responsible for not correcting others’ mistakes? People can have a hard enough time looking out for themselves and those for which they are responsible without having to worry about helping every person in need in fear of legal reprimands.
That, and the people that DO help these kinds of people would no longer be BAMFs. They’re no longer going above and beyond the call of duty. They’d just be your run-of-the-mill law abiding citizen.
Here is the unfortunate thing… in the States (and also Canada) if you attempt to help someone, and for whatever reason your helping them causes some sort of harm to them… they pretty much have to sue you. I mean, that’s a dick move if the “harm” is tearing their hoodie hauling their drunk ass off the tracks, but let’s say you accidentally kinda-sorta bend their spine. That’s a big deal, it’s your fault, and the only way they can protect themselves financially is to sue you. Would I personally have helped the guy anyways? Yes. Should you? Think twice in the United Sue-Peoples of America.
Thank you for philling me in. I’ve watched at least 3/5ths of those 1000 and am proud of it. And Consuming knowledge is something I will never stop.
Btw, if he’d died, yes, that should be negligent manslaughter, because he’s not actively killing someone, but he’s going out of his way to do nothing at all about his staying alive.
It is this weird ass line.
I’ll admit, I would love to see some kind of punishment for negligence. We could call it ‘Doucebag’ Tax. However, the lines and circumstances would have to be so vague that it would mean people could claim negligence instead of facing up to the actual severity of their crimes. Great idea, but it would be too hard to implement.
Philip fuckin’ Defranco! ( I may have mistaken your middle name). Anyways, dude, you are an inspiration to me. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t be as politically educated as I am today. Last week there was a mock debate/election at my school. I solely represented Gary Johnson and I used Sourcefed’s Gary Johnson video as my opening statement. I ended up with 16 percent of the votes from my school! It was awesome. And all thanks to you and sourcefed. I’ve been watching your show since I was in 7th grade (I’m a senior now). You’ve given me a lot of knowledge and provided my days with humor when I really needed it. I love yo face, dearly, Phil! seriously though, I think you’re one of the coolest people ever..Have a good rest of yo weeksies!
Hey Philip DeFranco! I’ve watched your show for quite a while, I don’t know how many years its been, maybe 4 or something, but that’s besides the point. I am currently in college, was majoring in math but am either going to change it to political science or electronic media and film. I would love to one day work with you or just meet you, even how far off that is actually possible. You are totally awesome sauce and continue doing what you’re doing!
I loose faith in humanity when I see videos like that… what a douchebag… He should be charged for attempted murder, because that’s exactly what he did.
The drunk guy who went to the train station and fell on the tracks. He made that decision with his life.
During the Apple Event, the people clapping they kept showing in the audience (and when Tim Cook announced sales) were actually Apple employees, I saw Scott Forestall, Jonathan Ive and a few other execs who’s names I can’t remember in that bunch, so of course they’re clapping, because they’d like to keep their jobs, also because more padding for their wallets!
Good show Phil, you have spread some good messages throughout the people and I respect that.There are still people from the modern media who are broadening our minds
on another not cause its 12:45 here what your Halloween outfit going to be? and what u think is definatly out this year.
Love your videos and your monkey poster was the first YouTuber product I bought.
Watching the new PDS every day after I get home from school makes my day! Phil’s the ultimate BAMF.
I am quite enjoying this new feature! This whole site actually! I do wish there was a latest posts first section (kind of like twitter so i didn’t have to wade through old posts I have read before to get to what’s new)! But I don’t know what to think about this question, I don’t think that people should be judged by other people moral compass, for example if the guy on the train track was a known mass murderer would it be okay to leave him there then because you knew you would not get punished
Love all that you do for us.. Random question.. Do you/are you dressing up for Halloween if so what?
Phil, if you could pick ANYONE to be president, who do you think would do the best job?
I’d rob him after I save him.
Yo Phil, you were in my dream last night! It was pretty sweet got some pictures with you and you gave me a shirt! buuuut then I woke up, so yeah.
Dude, Assassin’s Creed movie, dude! DUDE!
Hey Phil I’m trying to get my own show about giving unbridled opinions on social issues and political etc any advice?
Did you not like how Iron man 1/2 was more light hearted?
I was fine with it but I like when things get darker (ex. Nolan’s Batman)
I get that, and the Batman trilogy was awesome, like the PDS
very nearly bought an imac recently, so glad I didn’t know, That thing is sexy! although its so thin I may be scared to open my window.
Ditto. We were about to make a big office purchase last week. Very glad I didnt
You Should check your Facebook inbox.
Phil why you so kool?
I fake it really good like youre supposed to :-p
As for the question of the day: negligence is crime. I one time was unfortunate enough to be 10 feet away from a car wreck. My friend and I both knew CPR but were hesitant to help due to leaking fuel. Once the authorities arrived and there was no explosion I felt like shit for not helping. I think self preservation impedes even the most altruistic people.
In the states there is also the fear that if something goes wrong or you crack a rib you might get sued especially in a country this lawsuit crazy
Too true, but that didn’t stop me from feeling like an asshole. What good is knowing CPR, if you are too afraid to use it?
What do you think of Same Love by Macklemore?
Phil, are you actually going on hiatus after Sunday?
Yeppers. Just for a week. Taking a vacation with the gf since I pretty much live at the office.
Phew, you freaked me out; have a nice trip, you deserve it.
I just want to tell you, Phil, that I am so proud of you. I’ve been watching your show for over 5 years, and to see where you came from to having presidential candidate, Gary Johnson on your show, that’s just amazing. Like I said, I’m so proud of you, and I hope you are too.
He was amazing and I was elated to have the opportunity. Thanks for watching and your words mean a lot
QOTD: Yes, negligence should be a crime. It’s dumb that human decency needs to be mandated by the government, but a life saved is still a life. Worth it.
Found you. Haha. It’s like hide and seek sometimes.
Philip DeFranco, only news reporter I can actually stand to watch.
I wouldn’t call myself a reporter but I am definitely a word sayer :-p Im not sure what my title is
or just perfection.
Phil do you think a ladder exists moreso in YouTube that you have to climb now in order to “make it” or is success still as organic as it was when you started? Also can you write a book on your experiences soon? I’m a college student, look up to you, aspire to create my own way in the digital space like you have when I graduate and that’d really help me out! What I’d give to be able to pick your brain!
Its easier and harder depending on your genre. News is honestly the easiest as long as you make yourself different enough. Its commentary and you never run out of fuel. As far as the book its in the works but Im definitely in the need of a proper editor.
Gotcha- the space I was trying to enter specifically was music catering to what Vevo misses with it’s all-sweeping grasp (more focused on the indie musician then those with the backing of a proper label). I’ve got the plan, potential backers, just lack the time- need that college degree!
anyone who stands by to let something happen to anyone or anything i.e. guy getting beaten up up that douch robbing the drunk guy should be made do something to promote humanity!
Its pretty fucking terrible. Agreed
PDS> chuck norris.
Phil I want to ask you as a Comedian who is trying to expand his comedy through youtube I want to know the answer to my question how do you measure success? and is there any advice to give?-is there anything.. Thanks Phil for reading :0.
I dont consider myself a comedian but as a youtuber I gauge success on interaction. How many people come back day after day. Who is leaving comments and what are they saying? But also as a comedian if you created half of my audience and then used it to sell small shows thats a MASSIVE tool.
Wise words of Phillip Defranco Thanks!!! and hey if you (or anybody) wants to check my channel the link is right here: http://www.youtube.com/user/RaffertyStephen
Hope you and everyone else enjoys and has a KICKASS Tuesday!
phil! love you man! are you happy with how things with sourcefed are goin
Ya definitely. Trying to get the crew to blog more and they have been loving it. Want to create a hub of awesome
Damn Philip, the story from Sweden is quite old.
The story is but the sentencing is a new update.
Btw, I do dislike how to put the sourcefed links on Facebook instead of the YouTube link, but I suppose you do that to both increase YouTube views and website views
Correct. Building the traffic and the community here. Its very important to do that now before YouTube implements whatever crazy changes they come up with next.
Indeed, just a personal annoyance to have to click a link to have to click another link, but that’s just me bitching.
RANDOM QUESTION haha do you know Hillery Clinton haha?
hahaha ohhh k >.< i asked you that FOR a certain reason, message me on fb ill tell you
hey werent you going to stop the PDS next year? please don’t, dear god I don’t want to watch the real news.
I play around with the idea every now and then. I think if I see or create something that does it better than me one day I might just revert to being a blogger rather than a vlogger but I love what I do right now
I bet you could turn a lot of heads if you did some “How I do it” type materials to document your day to day production of PDS, SouceFed, and related activities. A lot of aspiring folks out there curious to see how to follow in the footsteps of The Phil. I know I’d watch the hell out of it.
*SourceFed… Because I went to public school…
Philip DeFranco – BAMF of the year.
Nah Felix has the edge on me.
Yeah, I guess the whole jumping from space thing gives him the upper hand.
Hey Phil, love source fed and everything you’re doing.
Thanks so much I love doing it. Its fun and every now and then I feel like we do some good.
Hey Nation use this link/post to chat with me about the episode. One of the hardest things to do is to keep a conversation going with so many people in the Nation so I’ll be posting the videos on the SourceFed.com so we can have conversations using our facebook chat feature.
YOU’RE AMAZING PHIL
The bees fuckin’ knees.
I find you very charming. I’m glad there’s someone like you amongst the sea of ‘tards that post on youtube just trying to get famous for dumb things. <3

BIG TITTY BUNNY 2012.
How did you know my nickname?!
We’re the internet. We know everything. Even the things we don’t know.
you really know how to advertise lol.
haha nah although SourceFed.com has started averaging 300-400k views a day. I hope it becomes big some day
“Becomes big”? Just try to imagine stepping outside your door to greet 300-400k people every day, because I can’t.
On a semi-related note to your upcoming 1000th video, I also noticed sxephil is creeping up on 1 Billion video views.
