    Several articles linked to effects on 2012 election

  • 5. 3 Online Sources
    Huffington Post
    Slate Online Magazine
    National Review Online: The Corner
  • 6. Huffington Post
    Approach: liberal bias, lighthearted, joking stories/blogs
    2012 is a huge theme on the site, there is a whole 2012 section, and SPECULATRON
    Bleeds into some stories (medical marijuana)
    Most of the coverage is about the potential Republican candidates
    Obama: how the foreign policy will affect 2012
  • 7. Slate
    Slightly liberal approach
    2012 not the most dominant theme, but popular
    2012 does not bleed into most stories
    Speculation of Republican candidates, slightly scathing
    Obama’s coverage: slightly negative and either in relation to Libya or speculation
  • 8. National Review Online
    Conservative approach
    Libya a main point of discussion
    Republican candidates (Bachmann,Romney, Gingrich)
    Prevalence of 2012 in other articles
    Very anti-Obama/anti-democrat approach
  • 9. Compare and Contrast
    NBC News vs. Online sources: Differences
    NBC more formal
    NBC more neutral
    Online sources had more articles to look at
    Online sources had more opinion pieces
    NBC News vs. Online sources: Similarities
    Specifically interested in Republican Candidates
    Strong focus on who will run and how this could effect Obama
    Libya stories—heavy coverage
    Approach:
    Online was more compelling because it is faster/ easier to access
    Less compelling because it is clear what types of people (conservative or liberal) are going to seek out these stories.
  • 10. Marketing and PR
    Where should a candidate focus?
    ONLINE SOURCES
    Reach more people
    Dual-coverage
    Success of Sarah Palin on Twitter/Facebook etc.
    Depends on your target audience, but online get more coverage
