This concept really hit me while I was browsing through this thread: http://www.generalforum.com/politics-political-news/video-portrait-barack-hussein-obama-39735.html I want to know how you think politics is effected by the internet. If you think about it, pre-internet there was only two sources for getting information out about a candidate, newspaper and television. Now, with the introduction of the third main source, suddenly everyone is a journalist. Say a video that slanders Hillary Clinton becomes a viral video, scoring hundreds of thousands of views in a few months. Will this be detrimental to her political career, or will it simply be played off by voters? I hold onto the idea that most voters are uninformed and often misled. Will the internet make them more informed by supplying all the issues and stances at a glance or will it mislead people more with the hundreds of "Candidate Slandering Montages" on YouTube? It's hard to tell, really, but I believe there absolutely has to be some impact on presidential elections after the introduction of the internet, where everyone is able to share their opinion.
