Panelists talked about the use of new media, web logs (blogs), and citizen journalists in 2006 Senate and congressional campaigns. They spoke about several incidents that were widely publicized through the use of web logs and Internet video sharing sites rather than through traditional media sources. They also talked about distribution of material gathered by citizens and Internet columnists, the potential impact of new media on American politics, and challenging the main stream media’s domination of political news gathering. They also answered questions from the audience. 

The panel was titled “Three People Who Helped Change Congress.” Senator George Allen (R-VA) was shown on video calling S. R. Siddarth “macaca.” Lane Hudson broke a story involving e-mail solicitation of congressional pages by Representative Mark Foley (R-FL). Mike Stark, was filmed being tackled by Senator Allen’s campaign staffers. close
