There is a war on YouTube between a fair number of YouTubers who do daily, or multiple videos/day, about stimulus updates. It’s mostly a semi-friendly confrontation although it is becoming more heated. The groups tend to fall into those who are more into financial planning (accountants, financial experts, etc.) and those with little or no financial planning background.

It’s mostly been indirect sniping between the two groups. Although one real estate YouTuber who posts several videos/day did take some potshots at a CPA. In a weird twist, the real estate YouTuber was alerted that another non-financial planner YouTuber had taken a recent video of his and copied the transcript of the video. Then, the other YouTuber basically did minor re-writes of the transcript to create his own version of the video. This could be a copyright issue as well as a plagiarism issue. I am not getting involved either way.

What I find most disturbing is people doing one or more daily stimulus videos when no new information is being released. They are getting a ton of views to put forth how they think things will turn out. I rarely do stimulus updates except when something worthwhile shows up.

At this point, none of these YouTubers have a clue as to how things will turn out. See so much misinformation being spread by them. Throw in wild claims that have little or no basis in reality or are not likely to get passed.

Some of them post long videos to maximize ad revenue. Personally I would like YouTube to demonetize all of these videos. I doubt it will happen as many of the videos generate a lot of ad revenue for YouTube.
