"YouTube Town Hall" Launches for Congressional Clips

BY Nancy Scola | Wednesday, May 18 2011


The company's new head-to-head video platform officially rolls out this morning, via Morning Tech:

YouTube Town Hall is an online platform for members of Congress to debate and discuss the most important issues of the day. Visitors can select an issue, watch two short videos expressing competing ideas, and then support the one they agree with most. To help people focus on the merits of the idea and not the party of the speaker, the speaker's party isn't revealed until after a user decides which video to support. The most supported videos will be highlighted on the YouTube Town Hall Leaderboard.
