What's Up With YouTube's Page Counter?

Has anyone else noticed that YouTube’s page counter is often ridiculously out of whack?

Earlier today I posted video of protesters interrupting Barack Obama at Notre Dame’s Commencement speech.

The video was linked at the Drudge Report, Instapundit, HotAir, Real Clear Politics, etc.
YouTube reported as of 12 AM CST that the video had only been viewed 308 times:

There were already 175 comments.
What gives?
You would think that YouTube would have a more accurate page counter.
