EUobserver / EU politics to be YouTubed

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - With an eye on the grassroots political campaign of Barack Obama, the communications-savvy US president, YouTube has teamed up with a European broadcaster to try and bring a similar 'Yes we can' buzz to EU politics one month ahead of the European elections.

The video sharing website on Tuesday (5 May) announced it is going to collaborate with Euronews to provide an online forum for MEPs and experts to talk about the issues on voters' minds.

The European Commission has a YouTube channel already

Later this week onwards, EU citizens from across the 27 member states can put a question to those running for office via a new YouTube channel called Questions for Europe

"People want to be on a level playing field with politicians," said YouTube political communications director Aaron Ferstman, noting that politics and the internet provide the "perfect marriage."
