new media and the campaign

03Nov08

Somehow, this NYT article on the role new media have played in the campaign just seems to be a bit obvious and late. I’m trying not to be like a snarky tech blog site and scoff at “gee whiz technology” pieces written by larger media organizations, but I just had to say something.

I would have appreciated more a look at how new media led to substantive differences in the election process overall (besides boosting SNL’s ratings). Are voters more informed, or is there so much noise out there that they are more confused than ever? What was the effect on campaign donations? We’ll have to wait until after Tuesday to see if all this information actually motivated more people to go to the polls.
