Videos about natural disasters such as the March 2011 earthquake/tsunami in Japan and political upheaval such as the Arab Spring uprisings in the Middle East were most popular.

Our intent is not to deceive people. We’re not going to put a dateline on something that suggests we’re in Moscow when we’re not. On the other hand, putting a Cupertino dateline on Apple stories makes sense. Do we physically have to be in Cupertino every time? No.

And then you look and it's like someone calling you "a feminazi with bad hair." And you think, Are you kidding? I have great hair.
