YouTube Offers Election Coverage For 2012 Campaign Season


YouTube launched the official YouTube Election Hub on Wednesday, calling it a “one-stop channel for key political moments from now through the upcoming U.S. election day on November 6.” This marks the first time YouTube will be offering live streams of campaign coverage, including speeches and debates. In an article from today’s Boston Herald, David Gerzof Richard commented on the website’s latest endeavor. “If you think about it, 20 years ago, if you wanted to follow an election, you’d have to catch a politician’s speech on the nightly news, or record it on VHS, or listen to it on the radio, or read about it the next day,” he said. “Now we have political speeches on demand, at our fingertips, that you can pull down at any time of day or night. It’s all there for us as citizens to peruse through and digest, and it really does push democracy.” To read the whole article, click the photo above or click here.
