introducing guest blogger Daniel Kreiss
On Tues., some voters endured long lines to do their civic duty, and the media provided relentless coverage. For a brief moment, presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s transition website went live, offering additional insight into his campaign’s symbols and messaging for the US.
Daniel Kreiss‘s research can help viewers decode such imagery, as well as understand the rise of Internet media in past campaigns. Check out Daniel’s book Taking Our Country Back: The Crafting of Networked Politics from Howard Dean to Barack Obama (2012, Oxford University Press). In addition, check back for posts by Daniel – he will be guest blogging at orgtheory!
