Net and politics radio show

I was part of an hour-long discussion of the Internet and politics on KQED’s Forum program yesterday, along with Robert Bluey, of the Bluey Blog and Red State, Josh Harkinson of Mother Jones, and Christopher Rabb of BloggingWhileBlack.com. I thought the other folks were interesting. The MP3 is here. [Tags: ]

  1. The Forum focused on the role of the web in national politics, with the YouTube debate as news hook. As you noted, the YouTube debate drew a little from the web (questions from citizens), and a lot from broadcast media (the soundbite debate format, the talking head post-game show). The interesting action, it seems to me, is in local/regional politics. Firedoglake has a weekly series where progressive candidates talk to the community, and donations are solicited via ActBlue. Recent studies have shown that MoveOn’s get out the vote efforts actually got out the vote; the next step is peer GOTV. Once the Netroots help candiates get elected, the next step is accountability. On Calitics, bloggers are calling out Jerry McNerney, who was elected with tremendous netroots support, for voting against medical marijuana. The legacy of the Dean campaign, it seems to me, is less about bloggers covering presidential campaigns and more about activists building the 50 state grass roots base.
