Obama to answer questions on YouTube
Do you ever find yourself yelling at the television during a State of the Union address? Now there's a slight chance you can vent your frustrations directly to President Obama and get a response.
White House New Media Director Macon Phillips invited Americans via the White House blog to submit follow up questions about the president's big speech to YouTube.com/CitizenTube. Phillips promised that Obama will answer some of the questions during an event next week. The CitizenTube blog said Obama will answer the questions "in a YouTube interview from the White House."
CitizenTube is a channel on the video sharing Web site that collects and displays the best and most popular video offerings related to political news and opinion. The channel launched during the 2008 presidential campaign.
Obama's participation (what some might call a PR gimmick or smart online outreach) is another example of the administration's growing Gov 2.0 efforts. Top administration officials regularly answer questions from citizens through the White House Live video program, the White House officially launched its mobile app on Monday and federal agencies have expanded their reach across dozens of social media sites.
