CSPAN Video 20: Conservatives and the Media
This C-SPAN video segment features Eric Telford, Executive Director of RightOnline, opining about right wing groups and the use of media. Mr. Telford's analysis is worthy of some consideration. He discusses how the mainstream media can select which stories to cover and which opinions to present. The new media--specifically social networking--allow for the presentation of views (and opinion) not held by the so-called political mainstream. It is interesting analysis that applies, not only to the conservative movement, but to movements typically condemned as extreme or fringy.
