YouTube opened a channel exclusively for Congress today - sans ads, which keeps it aligned with previous "franking rules." The site comes in two portions: House Hub and Senate Hub. It was aptly introduced with a video montage of Congressional leaders like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi saying they value online communications with constituents.
YouTube added, via its blog:
You've shown your elected officials that in order to be in contact with you, they need to come to the platforms you use most, and engage with you directly...
These YouTube channels have the potential to make Congress more transparent and accessible than ever before - but only if you continue to connect and engage with your government on the site.
