I won an Emmy, as a YouTuber

It’s hard to express how exciting it felt to be an independent journalist & youtuber on a stage that is traditionally reserved for legacy media. Times are changing and I’m excited for what’s to come. Feeling extra grateful for this community today and what it allows me to do.

Everything we make on or outside of the channel is a collaborative process with our insanely talented team – it’d be impossible without each of the people we work with creating and working at such a high level.

  1. Congratulations, I hope this is the first of many your work is not only of the upmost quality but it’s also entertaining and so easy to understand 🎉🎉🎉 keep up the good work.

  2. I don't like shorts, they belong on TikTok. Because this is YouTube and I see something vertically filmed, I find this offensive and it clutters my feed.

  3. Wait wait wait, you won the Emmy as a Times sub contracted journo but your main gig is YouTube. Have I got that right or wrong?

  4. Jhony, I'm happy for you, but unfortunately your ties with corporate media is a disappointment as a follower. I can see more and more you're becoming a simp for theses corporations. I can see when you're speaking about some news , it's becoming more a CNN reporter. Bye and best of luck.

  5. Johnny !! You deserve it bro..!!! ✨👍👍👍👍👍 keep up the amazing journalism !! Woohoo!!!

  6. Congrats. Love the map vids hope you do more. But you have great articles and great reporting. Hope we see more.

  7. Good job. Feel proud. I don't have cable… So didn't even realize Emmys happened. Lol. Still only have YouTube and Hulu.

  8. I wish everyone knew about you and you reach great heights in your carrier,
    hey a request can you pleaseee make a video about the state of media,news channels in india. If you want i'll give you insights.

  9. Your videos feels like you’re sitting in front me and telling me an interesting story. Not a single second I like to skip.
