In these last weeks before the elections, the political and economic turmoil is much in the news. This is the first presidential election to play out so prominently on the Internet, with amateur junkies and professional pundits alike mouthing off right and left. I’ve been exploring the ways and means of online coverage. Certainly the big online news sources, like The New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, BBC, The Christian Science Monitor, and NPR, are heavily trafficked for minute-to-minute breaking updates.
Then there are the lesser-known but also very popular blogs and editorials which voice opinions on one side or the other of the party divide: The Huffington Post, CNN’s Political Ticker, NYT’s The Caucus, Mudflats from Alaska, Politico, The Smirking Chimp, to name a few. There are blogs to the right and blogs to the left. There are even lists of Republican blogs and Democratic blogs. It’s a political junkie’s dream out there in cyberspace. With breaking news and opinion, 24/7, day after day, your head could explode before November 4th!
