The buzz: Here’s that Argus Leader Clinton video

May 24, 2008

Now, this is more like it! I’m embedding, below, the newspaper’s much-discussed interview today, using software code that the Sioux Falls, S.D., paper makes readily available on its website.

Offering embeddable code is smart, because it extends the paper’s reach to even more readers — in this case, on the political controversy du jour: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton‘s remarks about the 1968 Robert F. Kennedy assassination. I bet other bloggers have posted this video, too. Plus, we saw it all over TV earlier tonight.

I like this style of player all the more, because it lets me start the video when I want to — unlike that annoying one we discussed last week in this post about The Indianapolis Star.

Argus Leader Clinton interview shows video’s reach

May 24, 2008

Updated at 10:05 p.m. PT: I’m watching more Argus Leader video right now on CNN’s high-profile Anderson Cooper 360.

Updated at 6:57 p.m. PT with reaction: Soon after meeting with the editorial board, Hillary Rodham Clinton apologized for citing — during today’s meeting — the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as a reason to stay in the presidential race. The Sioux Falls, S.D., newspaper offers video and a transcript of her remarks.

I saw the video replayed just moments ago, on the News Hour, with credit given to the Argus Leader. “The blowback,” host Ray Suarez said, “has been — and in a very short time, a strikingly short time — tremendous.”

Columnist Mark Shields told Suarez that video like the Argus Leader‘s has changed the nature of politics. “This has been a YouTube campaign,” Shields said. “It’s what makes this campaign different from any we’ve been through. Every word you say is recorded.”
