New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2012

Dailymotion (http://www.dailymotion.com), the world’s second-largest video destination with more than 115 million monthly unique visitors, today launched the first episode of “Foreign Correspondents: How They See Us,” the first project of several Dailymotion plans to co-produce with VICE (http://www.vice.com).

The debut episode of “Foreign Correspondents” released today features renowned French journalist Laurence Haim of Canal Plus exploring the world of American politics through an international lens. Her interview subjects include former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Romney’s campaign coordinators in the series’ first episode. Paris-headquartered Dailymotion’s International renown makes it fitting for a French journalist to headline the new series, offering a global perspective of America’s election process.

In five installments, “Foreign Correspondents” will follow international journalists as they grapple with the turbulent, boisterous hustle of a Presidential Election cycle. Political pandering, hot-button issues and a stack of soap box-speeches unfold as the reporters struggle to relay the facts to their home countries of the Romney / Obama campaign trail.

The fragmented evolution of journalism and its impact on the world’s perception of America will be revealed as prominent media grapple with language barriers, cultural disparities and more. Five seven-minute episodes will be launched up through Election Day on November 6, 2012, featuring correspondents from Italy, China and more.

“Dailymotion is proud to partner with VICE to co-produce this unprecedented, entertaining documentary series on the world’s view of the U.S. presidential race,” said Neil Gladstone, VP of Content at Dailymotion. “Our global audience will enjoy a raw, front line view of the campaign right from the side of the world’s most seasoned international correspondents.”

The series begins with coverage from the first presidential debate, and continues with campaign stops by both parties, before ending with a final episode the week of the election. The premiere episode, “A Date in Denver” can be found here:
