YouTube Politics is a presidential campaign channel that will feature live-streaming video from the Democratic and Republican 2012 national conventions, the upcoming nationally televised presidential debates scheduled for Oct. 3, 16 and 22, and the vice presidential debate set for Oct. 11, as well as video content generated by a range of news and information partners.
The website is to serve as a one-stop hub, a single destination viewers can visit that will offer both the live stream and reporting and analysis from eight news organizations, according to YouTube.
The Republican National Convention being held in Tampa, Fla. has been delayed until Aug. 28 because of Tropical Storm Isaac. The Democratic National Convention is scheduled to meet in Charlotte, N.C. Sept. 4-6. The conventions will be the first to be live-streamed over the Internet, and YouTube will serve as the official channel for both.
