Panelists talked about the “pop culture phenomenom” of 2008 election. Topics included why satirical Daily Show-type shows and Web sites have become politically influential, using celebrities to pull voters into political discussion, and whether or not bloggers should identify themselves as journalists.

After the discussion, panel members responded to audience members' questions.

Tammy Haddad moderated.

“Pop Culture Politics” was part of the forum “2008: The First 21st Century Campaign,” which was held in the Washington, D.C., offices of Google. It was co-sponsored by YouTube and National Journal. close
