YouTube Video Awards announced… or are they?

Posted by Lotta Holmstrom

A recent news story from the Associated Press, rewritten by Swedish news agency Pressens Mediaservice and published in Dagens Nyheter, has got me quite confused.
The story is about Youtube Video Awards. According to AP reporter Jake Coyle, YouTube is announcing their video awards today, with nominees in seven categories: most creative, most inspirational, best series, best comedy, musician of the year, best commentary and most adorable video ever. The article contains an interview with YouTube’s Jamie Byrne, and some of the nominees are named (Paul Robinett and Peter Oakley).
Okay, all is fine that far. But then you click the link to the site, and get the messange ”This channel is not available.”
And if I google ”Youtube Video Awards”, all I can find are awards run by YouTube users, none that are actually on YouTube’s site.

So what’s going on? Has YouTube decided to wait before announcing the awards? Has the reporter got something wrong? Does anybody have information?
