Multimedia coverage of Friday session on social media's impact on Election 2012
We've received some interest in our Friday session on social media's impact on coverage of 2012 presidential election.
Here's how it was billed in the program: "Who's up? Who's down? In what states will Election 2012 be won or lost? And how will social media help -- or hurt -- campaign coverage? Mindy Marques, executive editor of the Miami Herald, leads the discussion with AP's Liz Sidoti and Chuck Babington, along with Joe Vardon of the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch and the Herald's Sergio Bustos."
Here is the story filed by Becca Andrews, a student journalist from Middle Tennessee State University: http://apmeblog.blogspot.com/2012/09/political-panel-discusses-coverage.html
Video crews from MTSU's student TV station, MT10, also taped the session. Because of the session's length, it is in two parts on APME's video channel on YouTube. Here are links to our video reels of the session:
