    so I scrolled for a bit, and no one pointed this out. That's not a Jeep that's a Ford you pointed out.

        There's nothing wrong with lampshading if you use it to debunk the criticism against you rather than just acknowledge it, but Shane Dawson doesn't debunk it. He just brings it up and moves on to the next point as an attempt to deflect it. Shane Dawson is a harmful, manipulative, coward in every sense of the word

            So Jake Paul makes ads to kids while Shane (and general documentaries) makes ads for adults

                Why did this remind me of this one conversation I've had...

                Me: how do you feel about people who are mentally ill?

                Friend: they are evil! Why do they exist?

                Me slightly mad: how do you feel about people with clinical depression?

                Friend: I feel bad for them and give them all my support! Why you ask?

                Me: .... you do realize clinical depression is a mental illness?

                I feel like, shane does use a lot of these techniques but... Other 'real' docu-series use the same things. So I don't think it's wrong.. But as Always love the video <3.Edit: As a history major I kinda knew about the way docu-series are made and a lot of times in class we treat them as propaganda. Like ask the same questions! Another thing I learned is that literaly everything is framed. It's impossible to be 100% objective. So that's something to keep in mind.

                            So basically you are saying not to believe a word your saying witch is genius because it makes your video honest and that makes people want to watch your channel even more so if you lied you could hypothetical get away with it!

                              Shane has really bad anxiety and has depression so he actually is nervous.

                                I love Shane.
                                I still hate Jake and Logan.
                                I don't like Tana either.

                                            I know I'm late to the party but the saddest part to me is that the moral of all of this is that people WANT to watch the kind of content that is full of primers and lampshading and framing, content that is problematic in nature (both in the sense of folks who watch Shane and Paul brothers super fans), because a) nothing is not problematic and b) it keeps our interest far better than something that is entirely factual. Emotions and logic both play important parts in the audience's reception to media, however emotions clearly win the battle for the most-used-part-of-the-brain while intaking media.

                                                          I wanted to comment from the start that documentaries are always subjective. I went to a film school for a year (it was a one year school). And we talked a lot about documentaries. We also had a lot of guest speakers who did documentaries. And they were always saying how much they chose what to show. I also made some documentaries. And it's literally impossible to make an objective docu. There are too many facts and choosing which facts you're going to tell is already a subjective choice. The same goes for the news. There is always a lot of news all the time. But we only see specific things. It's impossible to show everything. So even the news is subjective. Everything is always subjective and you should always realise that what you learn might not be true. (Even in school. For example I've been told by two different teachers in two different schools that climate change didnt exist. And one of them was a geology teacher...)
