Today Newsy is launching its political video content on Pulse, the elegant mobile application that transforms websites and blogs into a colorful and interactive mosaic.


Newsy Politics will offer Pulse’s audience multisource videos that analyze political news coverage from a variety of media outlets. It will bring the first video component to Pulse’s extensive catalog of political news sources, which provides commentary, breaking news, original reporting and investigative journalism.  


"As we move closer to Election Day, we hope to continue to add relevant news sources to our platform focusing on the candidates and larger political issues. Our partnership with Newsy will bring political news coverage from a wide spectrum of sources, packaging it into short video perfect for mobile consumption on Pulse," explained Cristina Cordova, head of business development at Pulse.


“We’re excited about delivering Newsy’s unique political videos to Pulse’s ever growing audience this election season,” said Jim Spencer, president of Newsy. “Our multisource videos offer a new way to consume news - users understand biases in political reporting as well as discover news sources they would not have found on their own.”


The go-to news source for on-the-go news users, Newsy delivers context with convenience to keep users informed of the day’s most important stories.
