Earlier today I interviewed Cynthia Farrar, the CEO and producer of PurpleStates.TV
Tomorrow, the first of nearly a dozen video segments produced by her new company and reported by non-professional citizen journalists, go up on the Op-Ed pages of the NYTimes.com The videos will be uploaded through February 5, "Super Tuesday."
Update 10 pm EST: I understand the videos will go up on The Times later in the week, but not Wednesday as previously planned. Details to follow. Update 12/19: A New York Times spokeswoman told me that the videos will go up tomorrow, Thursday.
Update: 12/21: The Purple States is live on the NYTimes.com
Dr. Farrar is a scholar on the history of democracy at Yale. She is on leave to launch PurpleStates.TV which she hopes will continue to grow past the 2008 presidential elections. The company is privately funded.
She has some interesting perspectives the dynamics of the presidential primaries. You can grab the code of my video interview right here.
The Time is hosting their clips, but the host for the Purple State videos for the company’s site is on Blip.tv A few of the clips are up.
