YouTube - figures that don't check out

I have read that political satire not agreed with by YouTube mods is dubbed down by reducing the count displayed to make people think the video is shit. Whether this is true I do not know. What I do know is that this cartoon took more than 200 hits on its first day.

Yet when I check the thumbnails a week later my own YouTube account shows a count of 298 while the general thumbnail only shows 103. These photographs were taken within minutes.
