Forget YouTube, Visit FoxNews.com

foxnewsdotcomsept25.jpgFox News missed an opportunity with its Clinton/Wallace interview, Lost Remote says. “Clearly, this is a viral video if there ever was one, yet the relaunched FoxNews.com dropped the ball,” Cory Bergman says. “Yes, it’s displaying the story and video prominently. But there’s no way to email, link or embed the video. So what did Drudge and a fair share of blogs do? Linked YouTube’s clips of the interview, not FoxNews.com.”

Even FNC’s hosts cited the video’s #1 status on YouTube — apparently to the chagrin of their colleagues on the dot com side. “I hear that the FoxNews.com folks were getting pissed about it,” an insider says. “They have the whole interview on their site but the on-air folks kept steering people to YouTube.”

Were today’s repeated plugs for FoxNews.com just a coincidence?…
