 Led by IOP Fall Fellow,
The man who pioneered Internet politics to singlehandedly build the Howard
Dean Fundraising Machine that shattered records and which is now the model
for nearly all online political campaigns.

*This week we'll be joined by Jane Hamsher, the founder of Firedoglake, one
of the most important progressive blogs, to talk about the relationship
between the traditional news media, the emerging new media, and the
political campaigns.** Does blogging drive mainstream media or does
mainstream media drive blogging?  The truth is more complicated and
intricate. We will also ask Jane about the state of the presidential race,
the effectiveness of blogging for state and local political campaigns, and
the future of journalism.*

WHEN: Monday, October 27th at 4:00 PM
WHERE: IOP First Floor Conference Room, L-166
WHAT: A discussion on the role of Journalism and New Media in Politics
