I loved the CNN-You Tube Democratic Debate last night. It was so cool to see what's on the minds of Americans across the country. The technology worked seamlessly, and Anderson Cooper did a decent job.
You might ask, "Lorri, is this the end of professional reporters?" Nah. Here's why: I bet those of you who didn't agree with the You Tube questioners' lifestyles, stances, or opinions didn't like the idea of them getting a forum in the debate.
Reporters who can ask questions without emotions tied to the queries or the responses are still in demand. But if this new technology gets Americans more involved in the political process, hey, I'll let go of a question or two.
The GOP CNN-You Tube debate is September 17th. I can't wait.
