CNN/YouTube: The Early Reviews

From Paul Brownfield of the LA Times: “the event didn’t amount to a lot more than an interesting town hall, people able to crawl through their broadband connections and meet the candidates.”

From Jeff Jarvis of The Washington Post’s Channel ’08: “I am sorely disappointed… CNN selected too many obvious, dutiful, silly questions.”

And from the AP: “Young, Internet-savvy voters (played) starring roles in a provocative, video-driven debate.”

Up next for the YouTubers: the Republican candidates live from St. Petersburg on Sept. 17, as one emailer notes: “is CNN trying to get people not to watch by going up against ‘Monday Night Football?’”
