New HUD Videos of Secretary Ben Carson, Innovative Housing Showcase 2019, Surprising Manufactured Housing Institute Reveals

June 20th, 2019

Still from third HUD video, posted below. Factory-built homes are visible in these videos. 

The inaugural Innovative Housing Showcase” (IHS2019) says the HUD YouTube page, “featured new building technologies and housing solutions that are making homeownership more affordable for American families and homes more resilient during natural disasters. The Showcase includes panel discussions, on-stage interviews, and demonstrations with exhibitors, lawmakers, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the housing industry.



HUD has posted these two videos, shown above and below.



This third video by HUD is their ‘wrap up’ video, and features a narrative by Secretary Ben Carson.



So, HUD continues to promote the importance and meaning of the Innovative Housing Showcase.



A tiny house video was posted only 4 days ago, but the total views on this over half-hour length video dwarfs all of the MHI videos combined. Can’t MHI promote their own videos better than tiny house promoters?

What about others?


This is the Cribs with Carson video that MHProNews posted earlier this month.


It is interesting to note that the Manufactured Housing Institute has not made it easy to find their own vides from their own website.


In fact, on this date, we found no way to access MHI’s YouTube videos from MHI’s own website. 


Why not?


Secretary Ben Carson’s address to MHI in New Orleans is also still missing today.



These raise concerns reported at the link above. MHI backers, what say you?  How do you explain these obvious oversights?  Especially during a downturn?
