I've long been of the mind that people who do YouTube videos of themselves ranting at a cheap camera about one silly thing or another are just too lazy to actually write down their thoughts. It's impossible to take seriously.
It's not laziness. They all wanna be Internet celebrities, and getting your face on YouTube is a perfect way to achieve that.

And make no mistake, some of these people have risen to celeb status (like RelLetterMedia, Jeremy Jahns, Confused Matthew etc.).

It's the PEOPLE who are lazy, because most of them would rather watch some random guy on youtube rant, than actually take a minute to read anything longer than 150 words.
