Today, as web video takes center stage at the Republican CNN/YouTube debate, the Democratic Party launched FlipperTV allowing anybody the opportunity to view all of the video we're recording of Republican presidential candidates on the campaign trail in the early states.

From our release:

For months now, Democrats have been tracking the Republican presidential frontrunners in the field, compiling a video library of candid moments as they campaign across the country. Found at FlipperTV,, Americans can now watch and download this video and use the footage as they wish, putting raw material into the hands of the American people to hold these candidates accountable for their comments and actions.

By crowdsourcing, the DNC is seeking to engage people by making data available for their own personal use, enabling users to sort through the video and expose the Republican frontrunners' flip-flops, contradictions, and policy positions that show how out of touch Republicans are with the American people. FlipperTV will allow activists and voters to download video to their computers, edit it to create new user-generated video, and judge the candidates' flip-flips and exaggerations for themselves.

We don't want this video sitting in the basement when activists like you can take it out and chop it up, and maybe even discover something we missed. It's just one more way we're holding the Republicans accountable for what they say on the campaign trail.
