Calif. – Google’s (NASD: GOOG) YouTube has
posted its video interview with President Barack Obama, taking questions
submitted by YouTube users after his State of the Union address last week.
YouTube said over 11,000 questions for Obama were submitted, and it received
over 55,000 votes on which questions its users wanted posed to the president. "We hope this interview brings us one step closer to
creating better access to your government through YouTube," Steve Grove,
YouTube’s head of news and politics, wrote on the company’s blog. "We had
many more questions on hand than we had time to deliver, so we’re pleased that
the White House has agreed to respond to more of the top-voted questions in
their blog soon, at whitehouse.gov."
