Since the live broadcast of election coverage in ’08, YouTube (read: Google) has been building an increasing number of ways for the public to engage with politics through their site. The latest is YouTube’s Town Hall channel – an “online platform for members of Congress to debate and discuss the most important issues of the day”.
You pick an issue: health care, education, Afghanistan – and find pre-recorded videos on the topic from House Members and Senators from both sides of the isle. The trick being – you don’t know which party they’re from until after you’ve chosen which one of the two options you like most.
