YouTube and Al-Arabiya Unite to Question Iraq’s Leaders

YouTube and the Arabic-language television network Al-Arabiya have teamed up for “Iraq Looks Forward.”

Much like past direct-to-candidateexperiments, users are invited to submit videos of their questions for any of Iraq’s leaders.

Al Arabiya will be doing a series of interviews with the political leadership of Iraq and asking some of the questions submitted by participants.

“Al Arabiya and YouTube will pose the top-voted questions to Iraqi leaders in a series of Interviews with sitting Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, Barham Salih, and others.”

Although Al Arabiya is a pan-Arabic network, anyone can submit questions.

The deadline to submit questions is September 27.

Launched in 2003, the Dubai-based Al Arabiya was founded as a competitor to Al Jazeera. The latter has a strong political slant, which inflects its coverage of war and terrorism. Al Arabiya’s Director, Abdul Rahman al-Rashed, told the New York Times that his network used neutral terminology to replace what he considered inflammatory terms.

If you leave a video question for Iraq’s leadership on Iraq Looks Forward, we would welcome a link to it in our comments.
