Audience and Agenda: Google Inc. was started in the mid to late 1990’s by two men, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. The two co-owners recieved a $100,000 check from Andy Bechtolsheim, Sun co-founder. Google eventually grew to become the world’s largest search engine in June 2000 and is still the leading website for finding information. Like youtube.com, google has a similar link where you can browse videos and images.
Usefulness: Like searching for text and other factual information on google, the popular search engine also offers searching only for images, videos, blogs, and much more. That’s how this video was found. This specific video of Barack Obama’s interview was meant to intrigue more Americans to vote for him because he plans on providing universal health care to all.
