Barack Obama Kicks Off His Weekly New Media Address

Nov 15th, 2008 | By | Category: Internet TV, Video

President-elect Barack Obama kicks off his weekly new media address with this video.

Obama plans to publish weekly addresses to YouTube as President, a milestone in the adoption of new media. It will be a little strange to see Obama competing for views against Fred, but it’s sure to drive new audiences to Internet video.

Obama’s campaign was all over the Internet, using Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, among other sites. One can only wonder what other ways Obama will use Internet media over the next four years.

  2. This is fantastic. The connection of the President to the world will be vastly increased and improved.

    And for cynics and doubters, the YouTube archive of these addresses will force transparency and accountability.

    This further buttresses my belief that Obama will go down in history as one of our best and most thoughtful Presidents.
