    YouTube has also had an impact on the senate race in Virginia where George Allen’s racist remark was captured on tape and uploaded to YouTube. In that case, the remark was “egged on” by a worker for Democrat James Webb who trailed Allen for days. If Webb beats the incumbent Republican it will be thanks to YouTube for taking what was said – and then repeated for emphasis – in front of a small group and bringing the offensive words to mainstream media attention. With such help, some candidates can defeat themselves faster than any attack ad.
