John Moe Oct 6, 2011

It’s a special channel dedicated to the 2012 election. This isn’t all that innovative, it’s the kind of thing YouTube has been doing for years at election season, offering up a dedicated channel to watch videos by the candidates. But it’s worth taking a look at this time around since Google is supposedly gearing up for a huge channel launch with channels dedicated to all sorts of things and pulling contents from tons of different providers. So this politics thing might be an interesting glimpse into YouTube’s strategy or template or design or something.
