YouTubers Interview President Barack Obama.



This is a spur of the moment post.

"Fox News’ Kurtz: Obama YouTube Interview Was BENEATH THE DIGNITY OF THE OFFICE"


I have a few things that I want to say.

Children, Teenagers, and Young Adults don't all take an interest in politics. They probably should, but they don't because it's too confusing or it's too in depth or they're simply not interested. It's always been that way and it always will be. When Obama is on tv, making speeches, or on the news, young people don't tune in to catch up with the latest in politics. By participating in this interview, Obama has opened the door to millions, LITERALLY MILLIONS of people to get involved and to understand what he's aiming for and what he wants. Those millions of people wouldn't normally have access to political information and through the internet, have managed to access it.

Young people might now have a growing interest in the running of their country, and that is all thanks to YouTube as a platform and the YouTubers as content creators and positive role models. It's such a positive thing that they have done and it's going to encourage so many people to get involved, have an opinion, and maybe even to vote.

I want to say thank you, to Hank Green, Glozell, Bethany Mota, YouTube, and of course Barack Obama for doing something so positive that might just change the country.

As a British Citizen it doesn't affect me directly, but the USA is such a huge part of every economy in the world and the fact that this has happened is insane, and brilliant.

The media reporting negatively only goes to show their narrow-mindedness and their lack of willingness for change. It says more about them that anything else.

You can watch the full video on 'The White House' YouTube channel HERE.
