Has the corporatization of everyone's favorite vid site taken all the funny away? Viacom became the latest conglomerate to have longer clips of its broadcast content - in this case, from Comedy Central, MTV and BET - removed from the now Google-owned YouTube, including some of the site's biggest draws, nearly full episodes of Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. Similarly, Broadcasting & Cable reports, a risqué mash-up parodying The Office's tortured lovebirds (titled "Pam & Jim Uncensored") was pulled at the request of NBC. But for the moment it was out there, how fun it was to hear Ms. Beasly talk dirty.
