MSNBC will incorporate the effort into its own political site.
“The 2008 election is proving to be the most youth- and technology-driven race in history, and MySpace is a significant forum for political discussion today,” said Lee Brenner, in charge of political programming for MySpace. “We are privileged today to be partnering with such revered news organizations as NBC News and msnbc.com and to be taking our first steps in what will be a unique and engaging collaboration for the MySpace community.”
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams was pitching the site in a banner ad on the MySpace home page Monday. "Check us out. Become a friend," Williams said in the ad.
