YouTube used for apology by politican

Last week, possible presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said that people should learn English, “so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto.” His remarks were met with both criticism and support.

Gingrich has released a video on YouTube in which he speaks in Spanish to explain his comments about non-English speakers. You will have to watch the clip for yourself to form an opinion about his comments. It is worth noting that a politician using YouTube to distribute content to the people is very different from issuing a press release to the media. While the clip is still edited and full of sound bites, it is delivered straight to viewer and does not use traditional media as the middleman. Politics is changing.
