First “Meet the Press” and now this: washingtonpost.com’s Chris Cillizza will help moderate a MySpace/MTV presidential candidate dialogue with John Edwards.
We just worry that Cillizza will have to dumb things down for Gideon Yago.
MySpace, the country’s most trafficked website, and MTV, the leading global youth brand, today announced details of their first Presidential Candidate Dialogue — featuring former Senator John Edwards (http://www.myspace.com/johnedwards). The inaugural event will take place on Thursday, September 27, at 12:00 pm ET on the University of New Hampshire campus — an affiliate in mtvU’s network of more than 750 colleges and universities — and will be moderated by MTV News Correspondents Gideon Yago and SuChin Pak as well as WashingtonPost.com political reporter, Chris Cillizza. Industry-leading pollsters John McLaughlin and Geoffrey Garin will oversee the real-time polling data and audience questions being submitted via MySpaceIM and MTV.com. The kick-off event also marks the first application integration of the Flektor instant polling tool since its acquisition by Fox Interactive Media in May 2007.
