We’re starting a new feature for NewTeeVee today, where every week we ask a noted figure from the online video world five questions about the industry and their work in it. First up is Ben Relles, founder and creative director of NextNewNetworks’ Barely Political. According to Relles’s official bio, “Ben Relles is the creator of Barely Political and Barely Digital. Combined his videos have been seen over 200 million times and viewed on news programs and television networks around the world. Ben received his MBA from the Wharton School of Business in 2004, and was a founding partner of MarketVision, Inc.”
He also, as you’ll learn below, used to own a Sony Watchman.
1. What’s the one big issue/law/attitude/restriction that you think is holding back the industry?

From an ad dollars perspective though, I’d say it is a need for better online video measurement. Read More about 5 Questions With…Barely Political’s Ben Relles
