As an OpEdNews Multi-Media Editor, I post five videos each week that I think you should see. I do not do this to select videos that represent the top news stories of the week. I pick five videos that I think show something that may have been underreported or that I think should be seen by you because of what the video explores.


Employees from Pixar put together a message to young gays and lesbians who may be considering suicide. The experiences shared are touching, heartwrenching and will likely leave you wishing society was more accepting of all people. You may cry, but when this is over, you'll be thankful there are people like these employees who are willing to get together and put together video messages like this.

Some underreported news -- students in Britain have been protesting rising tuition and new government restrictions on financial aid. Here's video of a scene with horses charging at these people that, if the people protesting in the video are correct, were still permitted to be out protesting.

While many Americans argue or believe TSA procedures have to be obeyed so people can be safer or it can't hurt to follow what TSA says because it can only help prevent an attack, this video shows why that is not entirely true. H/t to Mark Crispin Miller who had this posted on his blog. It shows exactly why we the people need to stand up and reclaim our civil liberties, which have been stolen from us so government can fight a phony "war on terror."


The US presence in Afghanistan this week becomes longer than the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan (you know, the occupation they lost). It's likely that Afghanistan has a similar impact on the U.S. as the conflict in Afghanistan had on the Soviets. And, this video shows just how NATO is helping to create that impact for America (and how NATO is contributing to the unnecessary bloodshed of Afghani civilians).

The Christian Right is always handing out "morality reminders" to Americans. This video appears here as a "morality reminder" to you. Don't forget how these people operate. Recklessly caving in to their petulant demands will only make this country's situation worse. There can be no common ground. They have no reason to back up what they want --- their agenda --- and so they must be fought vigorously.
