YouTube Launches “CitizenTube” for Political Expression
A lot of news has been made recently by YouTube videos about political candidates. Careers are being made (or lost!) Now, Google and YouTube is offering a more “official” version for political speech.
“YouTube has formally announced a new, official channel of political videos called CitizenTube. Edited by Steve Grove, YouTubeâ€™s Citizentube/YouTube News & Politics Editor, the channel appears intended to aggregate select political videos already appearing on the rest of the site. Will Steve effectively be an official representative of the politics of the GooTube giant? In some ways, he just may. To call that a big responsibility would be an understatement.”
