LaVibra.com, an ImpreMedia website, will feature the official Spanish-language version for the Presidential Dialogue Series hosted by MySpace and MTV’s Choose or Lose which promise live, “candid conversations” with presidential candidates.
A dialogue with Senator Barack Obama on the campus of Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa was streamed. MTV News Correspondents Gideon Yago and Sway Calloway, as well as WashingtonPost.com political reporter Chris Cillizza moderated the session. Pollsters John McLaughlin and Geoffrey Garin oversaw the real-time polling data and questions submitted via MySpaceIM and Think.MTV.com. No Hispanic media moderators or pollsters participated in the process. A translated video of the first Presidential Candidate Dialogue with former Senator John Edwards is archived on LaVibra.com.
“ImpreMedia Digital is using the Internet in a unique way to inform and educate our readers, and U.S. Hispanics alike, in the political process of the country in which they live, work and progress,” said Arturo Duran, chief executive officer of ImpreMedia Digital, LLC.
According to promotional materials, the Presidential Dialogue series marks the first time home viewers are able to submit questions in real-time to the candidates. MySpaceIM will provide the platform for users to submit questions during the event on MySpace, Choose or Lose and in Spanish on LaVibra.com. Each event, held at a college campus, is an hour long.
The Presidential Dialogue series promises to feature frontrunner candidates from the Republican and Democratic parties. In addition to the Spanish language content on LaVibra.com, print publications La Opinión in Los Angeles and El Diario La Prensa in New York will make the dialogues available to readers in print and online advertising.
