The Associated Press director of U.S. broadcast operations Kevin Roach explained why the AP did not stream the 30-minute live interview on YouTube conducted by President Barack Obama Jan. 27. On a panel at the Beet.TV Online Video Journalism Summit, he said the segment was shot on White House cameras and mentioned the journalistic challenges for news organizations that prefer to manage newsgathering on their own or via a collaborative pool.
