Remix News has been working hard to create short and social-media-friendly video content for Facebook, Youtube, Rumble, Instagram, and Telegram in 2022. While our videos have covered everything from the war in Ukraine to the midterm elections in the United States, these are the 10 that stood out this year and seemed to resonate the most with our audience.
The Irish revolt against government refugee push
This video, which racked up 1.2 million views on Facebook, shows Irish citizens confronting migrants as their country deals with a spiraling housing and homelessness crisis, leaving many Irish people to feel their government is putting foreign citizens first.

Who blew up the Nord Stream 2 pipeline?
One of our most popular videos, the question of who blew up the Nord Stream 2 pipeline remains an open one. Despite claims that Russia was behind the attack, the country had little motive to take part in sabotaging its own pipeline. President Joe Biden’s comments before the attack also raise serious questions about a potential role from the U.S., but up until now, there is no clear evidence as to who might have been behind it.
EU threatens Italy on eve of elections
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen’s threat against Italy on the eve of national elections made headlines across the world, with Remix News one of the first outlets to break the story. Our video showcased the specific comments in question, with nearly 450,000 people viewing von der Leyen’s threat to use “tools” if Italians vote the wrong way.
Brits boo Conservative MP over migrants being moved into hotels
Many Brits are increasingly enraged with the thousands of illegal migrants being housed in luxury hotels across the country, but even more infuriating is that some Conservative MPs are actually defending this program, saying it is illegal to send anyone back. The latest data shows taxpayers are spending €7.1 million every day to house migrants in 410 hotels across the country. Our video on the topic racked up over 350,000 views.
EU remembers fallen heroes of 1956 Hungarian Uprising
Our video of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s speech on the 1956 Hungarian Uprising against the Soviet Union may have only earned 80,000 views, but it showcased an event that has proven critical to Hungarian history and Hungary’s understanding of itself as a nation.
Billions going to Ukraine have major strings attached
The war in Ukraine is costing the West billions, but who will profit? As one Irish MEP notes in a speech in the European Parliament, Ukrainians and Western taxpayers will most likely get the short end of the stick.
