    That "Bright Side" guy is trash. He straight-up makes up fake stories about Titanic, pulls "facts" out of his ass and tries to present them as real, and peddles conspiracy theories all over the internet.
    As if that wasn't enough, his videos are full to the brim with such cringeworthy, puerile jokes and lame humour that watching them is painful. I'll follow suit like other commenters here and block him now.

    Preach it!
    And yes, faking facts ahem bright side-- is very stupid because you are just messing up the Titanic story. Hell, for all we know, an iceberg probably didn't destroy the Titanic, but if it was a lie, that detail would've been very convincing to make people believe it was true making them refuse any other theory. Except the iceberg has evidence.

    I have enjoyed all of your videos and I appreciate the work you do in making them as factually accurate as possible. I can tell you guys are passionate about the topics you cover, whether it’s directly related to the Titanic or another ship in history.

    That being said, this might be my favorite of your videos. I have worked in news before - both online and print, in opinion writing and hardline reporting. What people don’t seem to understand lately is that “clickbait” has been around for A LOT longer than the internet has. Whether it’s called “yellow journalism” or something else, it exists to make money and get attention. Sadly, tragedies and disasters are fertile ground for distorting the truth and creating false or misleading headlines to grab readers’ attention. Attention = views. Views = ratings/ad revenue. I don’t care what news outlet you’re talking about, if it’s a large national news company or a smaller YouTube channel, they all do this to one degree or another. I got so fed up with the reality of news reporting that I eventually chose a different career path.

    First thing I learned in my journalism classes: if it bleeds, it leads. Even to this day, a story related the Titanic will always bring in the views. The more outlandish, the better. And, I hate to say it, it is precisely because so many people lost their lives in the sinking that it’s such a popular topic to create falsehoods about.

    I will link to this video when the topic comes up and people try to claim “fake news” is some new phenomenon. Nope. It is as old as news itself.

    I especially hate the videos that are like "we can raise the Titanic" or "the coal fire sank the Titanic" my least favorite is "the Titanic didn't even sink at all, it was a different ship."

    Very, very,very good video! I'm sick and tired of falls stories about Titanic. Like when a guy claimed that a black woman was on the Titanic. (Black history month) Stupid! Matt politely start to correct it, but i fast become clear to me, that the black people that was in this conversation was racist. And they just wanted a black person on the ship witch there was and Matt told them so. They was ready to trow facts away, just to have a black woman on the ship, and with the narrative that she died because she was black, and they where all racist on the ship. They was not polite to Matt at all! Could you please make a video about the real black man who was on Titanic. and address that the woman was not on the ship. Just so we can make a copy-paste next time someone claim her on she ship.

    I have a feeling that the Titanic got out of her grave, she would definitely slap the fake news reporters for being Dishonored on her.

    Amen to everything you said here. There is a difference between mistakes and misunderstandings and deliberate deception for profit. Unfortunately, most people don't know enough of the facts to be able to tell the difference and don't realize they are being hoodwinked. And the profiteers and opportunists care more about their own notoriety and profit than the truth. There are some Titanic "researchers" who I have learned to avoid because their "research" is nothing more than sensationalism, omitting known facts and fanciful speculation:

    Diana Bristow
    Robin Gardiner
    John Hammer
    Senan Molony
    Leslie Harrison
    Peter Padfield
    Bright Side
    many of Capt Lord's defenders

    There are others, but these seem to be the most prolific at dispensing unreliable and even demonstrably false information, and I'm not afraid to name them directly.

    bright side came out with another video saying that Hitchins sank the titanic because of a steering error. I commented every thing wrong about that video and i wrote so much, my middle school LA teacher would have been proud of me.
