Referring to our last week coverage of President Obama State of the Union speech, the white house received about 12,000 questions on YouTube’s CitizenTube channel. The President is about answering them at 1:45 p.m EST.
The White House had a live stream of the speech that was embeddable on blogs or websites. Nearly 1.3 million people tuned into the WhiteHouse.gov’s live video feed of the speech. About 48 million people watched him on traditional television.
I don’t think he intends to answer all 12,000 questions , but he’ll get to as many as he can. Unlike the previous president, he won’t know which questions will be asked until he hears them during the interview.
It will be interesting to watch this.
