This year’s presidential election campaign is turning out be the oddest, outrageous and interesting in the history of USA. One of the deciding factors of the election are the debates. With Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump facing each other is turning out to be a blockbuster event. Because of the interest in debates this year, it’s streamable in many ways. From Twitter, Youtube to Facebook Live and Snapchat. Everybody is offering so why would Instagram be left behind. Instagram and CBS News have announced a new partnership that will make CBSN the first network to feature Instagram Stories in live coverage.
Original Instagram stories
It will not be like ABC’s deal with Facebook Live. CBS news will have little bit more control over the contents and it will take the editorial route. According to the network anchors and reporters will contribute original Instagram stories that will be rolled into the traditional debate coverage alongside additional curated Stories from political experts and voters across the US. This is also different in a sense that Instagram will cover the debates in a variety of different angles via Live Story with contributions from students, political personalities, celebrities, and volunteers.
Which way will you watch the debates and who do you think will come on top?
