'Sunlight is the best disinfectant' — Louis Brandeis

Though the five words in the headline above are oft-repeated, the actual words written by legendary Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis in a December 20, 1913 Harper's Weekly article were, "Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants."

Let's not quibble — his observation proves more powerfully true in the early 21st century than anytime in the past.

Can anyone argue with the ever-growing, immense influence of YouTube and its ilk after last week's elections?

I think not.

Note to those who have flourished at the expense of others as a result of a lack of transparency: you are one video away from exposure.

Fear the clip.
