Week 3 – Digital Electioneering

14 Oct

Our ambitious task for the evening:
A historical and quasi-contemporary look at campaign use of technology, beginning with radio debates, moving on to the Kennedy-Nixon debates, and closing with the first campaign-oriented websites (1990s). Examine communication that is top-down as well as bottom-up.

Agenda:

Kennedy-Nixon Debate

Archive.org has a 16 minute clip that contains excerpts from the debate.

Carter-Reagan

TV Amplification

Dean Scream – full

Dean Scream – not full

Dean Scream – filmed from the crowd

Political Commercials

The Modern-Day AstroTurf Campaign?
Q: If we can identify astroturf campaigns, why are they still effective (or are they)?
