The discussion is whether the big YT reviewers get paid to do reviews or not. Do they? Yes they do.

Yes, indeed they do, both directly and indirectly.

Let's prepare ourselves for the inevitable fallout from many YT 'Reviewers' as they go on the defensive as people start to examine a little more closely all those hidden revenue streams, and previous denials that they're paid to do what they do.

I honestly can't see most of them doing that. After so long denying they get paid in any way, backtracking would be difficult.
