Salt Lake City, UT – Last week, 2.6 million viewers tuned in to watch a new kind of political debate. CNN and YouTube received some 3,000 questions from video bloggers for the Democratic presidential candidates. Conventional wisdom says that the internet is revolutionizing politics and the public's access to their representatives. Guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce is joined by Mother Jones reporters Josh Harkinson and Daniel Schulman for a look at the truths and the myths of "Politics 2.0."

  • Read the current issue of Mother Jones Magazine, which includes Dan Schulman's "Are bloggers becoming bosses?" and Josh Harkinson's "RightOn: Neoconservative Netroots."
  • Learn more about Daniel Holsinger's Politic 2.0 project
