BuzzFeed's Obama Interview on Facebook Live Winks Out Before President Takes Seat

BuzzFeed's Obama Interview on Facebook Live Winks Out Before President Takes Seat

Monday, 16 May 2016 03:55 PM

 BuzzFeed's interview with President Obama on Monday -- which the media company touted as the first interview with the president on Facebook Live -- cut out on Facebook before the commander in chief even took his seat.

From its Facebook page, BuzzFeed pointed users to the live interview on YouTube, where the one-hour conversation was broadcast in full.

The interview was conducted live from the White House's Roosevelt Room by BuzzFeed News legal editor Chris Geidner, starting at 2:50 p.m. In the interview, Obama discussed his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland.

Reps for BuzzFeed and Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the glitch.

Facebook has been aggressively courting media companies and celebrities to take advantage of its live-streaming Facebook Live platform, as the No. 1 social service looks to drive more engagement and usage from among its global monthly user base of 1.6 billion people.
