Kavos : What are your thoughts on DeFranco and his patreon? because at the moment it is not looking good for Phil

Tristan : He actually makes good content. You are not.

JustIntricate : If his fans want to give him money and he keeps that amount private I don't see the issue there... Also if you look into the maker studios situation, when he sold it he didn't get any of that money. The legal papers are available online. Being a fan of both DeFranco and kavos, I think kavos just did shit research on this topic and gathered his evidence from people who publicly hate Phil *cough Keemstar cough* The problem inherently there is that Keemstar likes to brag about his wealth so someone like DeFranco who keeps his patreon earnings private well obviously that shows "deception". Is he worth the criticism? Perhaps but at least make the argument with valid points and not on assumptions. Just because his net worth is 8-20 million (which is a big gap as DeFranco pointed out lol) That doesn't mean at the minimum he's got 8 million dollars. I'm sure he's a millionaire and collectively all of his investments and assets are in the millions of dollars that again doesn't reflect his actual earnings.

Emperor Marx : Research is hard for you, isn’t it?

Ryan Lee : This is a pretty badly researched vid tbh...

Cheers : What are your thoughst on Kavo's research? because at the moment it is not looking good for Kavos

Wayne D : The reason Phil is so respected is because he has made a name for himself and did it through honest hard work. This guy wouldn't know anything about respect because he just shits on people for a living. You won't gain any respect if that's what your entire channel is based on. It's obvious you don't have a single creative bone in your body

Tony Carrico : I am so confused by this idiot's accusations and assumptions

agmpower13 : Comparing the production quality of Phil and Keem and calling it 'similar' makes me wonder how brain dead you truly are....because there is no way you can be that stupid. But then again, you did make a 14 minute video spewing nonsense, so, eh, guess I'm wrong.

epro7790 : Didn't you have a patreon? I can link the video if you'd like.

danny : Hahaha .. thank you so much for this video mr kavos .. because you've just showed us how stupid you are ... Hahahaha

WoollyOne : Yeah you jumped the gun on this one Kav

gracie : You are like the damn dollar tree version of Phil. You are hating on him but your pinned comment is EXACTLY what Phil does in every video. EVEN THE WORDING. Boy you really need to think before you speak

Casanova Creed : ok, you do realize Phillip does not keep all the money for himself, right? Like, do your research if you are gonna make these claims. He has at least 10 people working for him, who he has to pay. As well as the fact that he uses his money to better his channel. He does not take your money and run and buy a mansion. Plus, he dose not have to show us how much money he pulls in. People, like yourself, look at the fact he makes a lot of money and assume he keeps it all. Which is pretty pathetic. How about you go out and criticize Jake and Logan Paul, the actual faggot scammers of this website.

NoVa Staticz : I love all the triggered comments

Nav Ctv. : I came, I disliked, I left

It's BeeRay : Sorry but I have to disagree with you on this one Kavos. - It’ll probably take at least another 6 months before the Network is launched. Launching a news network isn’t like starting a YouTube channel. You need to get advertisers on board, get broadcasting rights and all sorts of other boring stuff. Look at Casey Neistat and his Beme/CNN thing. CNN acquired Beme from Neistat last year and the whole thing is still in the works. Philip DeFranco is doing this without the backing of the largest news corporation in the world. - Phill is constructing an entirely new facility which will serve as the base for the news network. There are video tours of said facility. So that will probably take some time before completion. - If I’m not mistaken (and please do correct me if I’m wrong) he mentioned a few months ago that this news network will be independent from YouTube but he will also continue to make content on YouTube. If that’s the case, these things don’t happen over night. There are all sorts of deals and negotiations involved. You don’t just start. Doesn’t matter how rich you are. A project like this is going to cost big money. Let’s also not forget that the man has a family to look after. He has PKD (average life expectancy of about 55) so you know, he might want to leave his kids with something other than debt and memories. This video just seems a bit vindictive to me. Not your best one mate. P.S. did you honestly compare DramaAlert (a guy sitting in a room in his house who often gets news stories wrong and can’t pronounce anything right) to the Philip DeFranco show? Honestly, I know Keem is your boy but you’re better than this

naveen s pai : Keemstar and philip are not miles apart😂😂😂😂 they are galaxies apart u fool... you see the quality of content he does with 2 staff its shit.

627283 8383 : Just came here to dislike the video.

ONI : Not cool bro. Unsubbed from u

Otimus Prime : It didn’t take 7 months to build Fox, or CNN, or MSNBC just saying

Mattia Cassell : I like you Kavos but you don’t understand how much money it takes to launch a news company which Phil wants to do and I don’t think you understand business. Just think about it for a little and stop letting Keem’s flawed ideas and thoughts control you.

Camilee Duck : What happened to that video game you promised your fans when they gave you money.....🤔

Alex Harrison : Kavos is a Massive idiot😂😂😂

RoC 77 : Ok millennial here is a lesson, Philly D is a subscription, not a charity, and not a share in the show. You are entitled to NONE of the accounting, not the amount collected, not where it is allotted to, none of it. Just like a subscription for Netflix, Amazon prime, etc.... we subscribers trust that we will get content, and if doesn't happen subscriptions get cancelled. We have no rights in what that money goes to so we don't need to know, considering we are not shareholders and have no say in what is done. This is the first time watching your channel and it will be my last, you've been called out with your inconsistency and errors and it's been a week, Philly D would have and has made corrections and an apology by now because he has credibility, considering you have done none of that, shows what a trash person you are.

LeafyLeafeon 382 : Untransparant? It's opaque

slimkt : You really don’t know how business works, do you? DeFranco has always been transparent in where his investments lie and what companies he has stakes in, but he has no reason to tell people how much money he makes and it’d be ridiculous to assume he should. Even without stating directly how much money he makes, he has always stated -even before the creation of DeFranco elite, that he and his company would be okay without financial support from fans. Even so, extra support from fans speeds the process along and means he has more means to create better quality content and more of it. Making an entirely new news network takes time and money, especially without corporate sponsors, and that’s on top of the regular PDS news show he’s already doing. Who gives a fuck if people willingly give him their money anyways? Instead of making assumptions about other creators, make your own Patreon and get support from your fans. Then people will pay you to keep talking out of your ass.

Christopher Pettit : Wow... A guy that can't do research. Congrats for being horrible at being you.

MATTierial : Wow... conjecture will get you nowhere. Come back when you have facts to share with us.

John Jordan : I used to be a fan of you man. Until now

elitess mess : You know, there are people whose videos are not just “one kid sitting in front of a camera and talking out of his ass“. He has several people working for him who will need their paychecks, he is investing in the future of his channel etc. So it's not like he makes 500k or whatever a month and will have it all to himself. Is he poor? no. Is he able to live comfortably with what money he's making? propably. Does he deserve that? Absolutely. So grow up :)

manic hispanic : Scam? I get some ppl don’t like a Patreon, but that isn’t a Scam. Ppl know what they are signing up for & what the perks are. I don’t think U can build an entire news network in 7moths, tho, but more updates would defy be welcomed by everyone.

Corky : Kavos is not this dumb! Oh he is this dumb! Ok

ms1eminemfan1 : Just came from ImAllexx's video to dislike :)

José Carlos : Nobody knows where this guy is coming from, he is trying to spark drama for views in his channel, I get it easy money. But first of all to compare Philip to drama alert pleeease, this guy has even worked for him how do you find his opinion believable. Saying that Philip is wrong for going independent is just silly, it was an extremely smart move that made him more money. He is not making a donation system, he is offering a service, one that I personally use a lot for my news intake, and it i free, he gives us the option to pay for it and get exclusive rewards on top pf the regular free content.

yes papi : How much research did you do and where did you research if you did any any research

Viewsk8 : It sounds like you could use some researchers if anything

Kid Charlemagne : Wannabe Phillip DeFranco

SpeedHomeAttack : This is 14 minutes of misinformation due to no research

Bryan Portinari : You realize he’s supporting a business right? That means he has to pay for rent for the space he’s doing content, he has salaries to pay for a full staff, benefits for his staff, recording equipment, insurance on that equipment, and many other things. It’s not cheap. He also has his own bills to pay for plus another child. You clearly don’t understand how a business is run. It works off of consumers. It seems like you’re manipulating your own viewers so you can get more views and get money yourself. Sounds like you’re more scammy than he is.

ME ME : lol all the philcucks are so mad

Ben Masta : i dunno kavos, philip always says that he is doing well no matter how bad the adpocalypse crap he reports on comes up. He always says "we will be more than okay no matter what thanks to those of you at defranco elite/patreon" basically every episode, even when not talking about ads lol. I can understand the expectation that phil produce something specific for the money hes recieved, but id be willing to wait to see what happens in the near future. Phil hasnt been saying anything like "we are out of money and everything is at a halt" its more like "i am constantly busy and working on everything" I could be wrong about phil, but i feel like 4-7 months is no where near long enough to be throwing phil under any bus, especially since ive still found his content completely watchable during that time. I'm just not sure what it is kavos expected to see.

No One : Cuck

Joel Hawkins : Do you not know how commerce works? He is not asking for handouts as he sits on his butt and watches tv or plays rocket league. He is working overtime constantly! Do you know how much it cost to actually build a news network? When my friend james garifiny got Initial investors for a medium sized network of news shows the cost averaged around 3.2 million. Distribution, merchandise, office space, maintenance, labor, construction, staff, benefits, supplies, sets, trips for the vlog, researchers, lead generation, social media marketing, SEO specialists, PPC....all of these things go into creating a news network or most businesses thats not even including how expensive 4k cameras, lens, lighting and lots of other overhead that comes into play. Why do you not realize, Kavos, that the reason most news networks have to have investors is because of the overhead and cost. Seriously if you think about this patreon and other minor partnerships and sponsors is the only way to determine that he will have full control over the message. WHICH IS THE WHOLE POINT HE IS MAKING...ALWAYS! To be able to bring the side of the conversation to light and not an agenda biased lobbying partisanship that every other network has. He is one of the first that is not sponsoring a political affiliation but a conversation and truth. This should be supported. This should be upheld. This is the way the news and it's true beginning was supposed to become. Facts and then a conversation. Not Opinion twisting facts for an agenda. Your agenda is to gain more subscribers and to bash another youtuber by twisting facts to your liking. Yes he doesnt have the amount on the site. Cause it's the right way to do it. He is not sitting on his butt he is building an empire eventually based on those founding principles of truth and a conversation. There is a difference between transparency and straight up shooting yourself in the foot. he is trying to gain and garner as much support as he can to grow this network. It is not a scam if he is creating content and providing what he talked about. he is expanding you can see through the vlog. I am in no way trying to be "mad" or "hate". I am just correcting an obvious mistake on your post and video. Have a wonderful day! Much love to all.

Lasse Kvik : Hahaha. Looking back at this seeing how Phill actually scammed them and made a shady ad/pr agency that is in a hot scandal in 2018. Hahahaha

princess Bowsette : Thanks to the betterhelp drama people finaly see that you were right

Toby Gray : A lot of your points are very opinionated they can be countered easily

dntask1 : Everyone in the comments are sheeple o.o, right on kavos! expose corruption and stand up for the little guy.

Kermit 5 : I cant beleived that after all these months that Kavos was actually speaking the truth. He tried to warned us.

RAH : Sorry man have to unsub
