what the heck are you talking about? that's not YouTube and the edwards video was only downloaded 18,000 times today on YouTube (55k total).
the top video on YouTube has been viewed 500,000+ times in the past 23 hours.
that is youtube.
here are today's top youtube videos in case anyone is actually interested in reality:
the edwards thing isn't even in the top 20 and the top video is now at 850k views for the day.
I just updated the title of the post to clarify, it was the "most viewed channel"
I get confused at their honor system as well. The grab clearly said most viewed today. Honest mistake.
