The following is a post from Mark Penn, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft
On February 12th at 9pm ET, America will tune into one of the most anticipated events on the political calendar the State of the Union address.
With that in mind, Bing is embarking on one of its most ambitious projects yet: hosting what we expect to be the largest interactive State of the Union experience in history at Bing.com/Politics. Scheduled to go live at 12 p.m. Pacific on February 9th, the site will be a non-partisan online destination designed to meet this growing need for up-to-the-minute political information and second-screen experiences that are a great companion to political broadcasts.
At Bing.com/Politics users can:
WATCH the speech live, with commentary from FOX News pundits and other political experts via Twitter;
PARTICIPATE in the Bing Pulse survey and see how others are reacting to the speech;
TRACK social sentiment on Twitter across key State of the Union policy issues such as gun control, immigration, and the fiscal cliff;
FILTER news from left, center and right-leaning national and local sources with the unique Bing news selector;
ACCESS original videos of former President Jimmy Carter and former Speaker Newt Gingrich on the State of the Union address; and
