Obama Will Have Weekly YouTube Addresses

No. The title isn't a joke! This will be interesting. :)

"President-elect Obama's office gave the media a new way to present him as Franklin Roosevelt 2.0 by announcing Friday that it will be posting weekly addresses - fireside chats for the web generation - on YouTube."

Be very interesting to see if they truly follow thru on this, could shift politics from the newspapers and nightly news to the internet. That would make more people part of the information flow. You are already seeing newspapers reduce staff as they lose readership to the internet. Huffingtonpost has not been a super good source of solid information in the past, so will wait for this to be verified before I am convinced that we are looking at a true "change in direction". Hope that it does hold true. :)
