THIS WEDNESDAY: Politics Gets Social


Katie Harbath, Chief Digital Strategist at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, will let us know how they approached the midterm election from a social media perspective, giving us an insider’s look at the inner-workings of the Republican social media machine.

Lauren Feldman will offer her perspective on social media and its ties to the traditional media, particularly in the aftermath of Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert’s Rally for Sanity and/or Fear. One of the nation’s leading researchers in political communications, she’ll provide a great perspective on how both sides have played the media game in the 2010 midterm elections.

Michael Mayernick, founder of social giving startup, will give his perspective as one not directly involved in the political machine, but one providing an essential fundraising resource. His startup has played a role in numerous campaigns this election cycle, providing incredible insight.
