Barack Obama to use YouTube to deliver weekly address
The presidential radio address will be getting a well-deserved upgrade once Barack Obama is sworn into office next year. His weekly radio address will also be uploaded to YouTube for all of the Internet to see, according to the Washington Post. Obama will begin utilizing the system even before making it to the White House by recording the Democratic address today, which will be posted on his transition Web site, Change.gov Sunday via YouTube.
Obama has proven to be a fan of the video sharing Web site and made it a key component in his campaign for presidency. His personalized YouTube channel has 1800 videos uploaded thus far and millions upon millions of views.
If anything, having the video easily accessible on YouTube will help the generation of Internet users stay up to date with the going-ons of the president, straight from his mouth.
