Yahoo! to stream web-only US Prez debate reports The Register which will make the search giant the first ever to host the first Online-only American presidential debate. Featuring in the list of speakers will be Hillary CLinton and Barrack Obama.

“The Yahoo! event will only be broadcast online, additional questions will be taken in real-time, and everyone will be spared Anderson Cooper. Hosting duties will be handled by PBS talk-show host Charlie Rose.”

"Viewers will have the ability slice and dice the online broadcast. They can choose to watch nothing but Hillary Clinton, for instance, or filter out everything but questions on Iraq. It's unclear if this can be done in real-time at time of the initial broadcast. Yahoo!, Slate, and The Huffington Post did not immediately respond to requests for clarification."

This May of the 3 out of every 4 American internet user who streamed video from the web, Google accounted 21.5 per cent of those streams while Yahoo! served up 4.6 per cent.

Take that Google and YouTube.
