President Obama Becomes a YouTube Star Twice in One Week

May 9, 2011  •  Post A Comment

President Obama became a star on YouTube twice last week, reports The New York Times’ Media Decoder blog.

His address to the nation about Osama bin Laden’s death was viewed almost 5.4 million times during the week, making it the most-watched video by far of any official clip on the White House channel on the site, the story says. But it was Obama’s speech at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner that really shined, with the 19-minute video racking up almost 7.2 million views through Sunday.

That makes it the single most-watched speech by the president on YouTube, the piece notes. The clip was posted by C-SPAN.
