It's unclear if anyone has seen the "Innocence of Muslims" film in its entirety. What most people have seen is the 14-minute trailer on YouTube.

The White House has asked YouTube to see whether the clip violates the company's rules and if it should take it down. So far, the film has been blocked it in Egypt and Libya, but Youtube has not removed the video from its website.

Claire Cain Miller, a tech reporter with the New York Times joins the show to discuss YouTube and Google's reaction to the frenzy surrounding this film.
