"Hillary Clinton’s fainting video is making money for Rupert Murdoch"

RC:

Murdoch’s News Corp owns Storyful, a company that sources and distributes user-generated video, and Storyful is representing Zdenek Gazda, the man who shot the footage Sunday morning.

Gazda’s video is freely available on Twitter, where it has been retweeted more than 37,000 times. Anyone can embed the video, like we’ve done above, for free.

But Storyful has been charging news organizations that want to use the video in broadcasts or other packages thousands of dollars for usage rights.
