YouTube Becomes Election Tool

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Sep 21, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO YouTube co-founder Steve Chen and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom discussed YouTube's growing role as a tool in political elections last week at the San Francisco Public Library. The Sing Tao Daily reports that the video clips about candidates' off-guard moments help the public make a better-informed decision. For example, a YouTube clip showing former Senator George Allen (R-VA) ridiculing an Indian American caused him to lose the senate seat in 2006. In this year's election, candidates have been using YouTube as a campaign tool. Chen said YouTube is a place where he put up video clips of his cat three years ago. He never thought YouTube would become so political.
