MySpace and MTV Join Forces for Interactive Presidential Discussions
Caroline from Webware has a scoop on a new combination of MySpace and MTV which will hold "interactive" presidential discussions. Seems similar to YouTube and CNN"s presidential debates last month. From her article:
"These dialogues are not going to be a debate," said Ian Rowe, MTV's vice president of strategic partnerships, in an interview with CNET News.com. "They're going to be one-on-one, unfiltered conversations between a group of young people who are sitting inside a college campus auditorium (and) an audience online (that) will have the ability to submit questions in real-time." Rowe added that this will be a totally interactive experience. "They'll be able to literally respond to what the candidate is actually saying during the conversation. Even if you don't have the opportunity to physically be in the room, you can participate tangibly in the conversation."
It appears the first of these conversations will take place on September 27th with John Edwards. Think he will Twitter it live?
Will it really be "anything goes" or will it be "filtered conversations" as was reported with YouTube/CNN? Is MTV even relevant anymore?
