This will be the last day for CampaignUSA 2012, at least in this format. With the campaign now down to little more than a month before its true kickoff—signaled by the two major party conventions—we will be transitioning to a tighter focus on what many consider (sometimes sadly) the biggest game in town: the media and media-promoted advertising (in this post–Citizens United world).
It’s a natural for me, of course, since I have covered this subject since, oh, the 1970s, right up to many years not long ago as editor of Editor & Publisher. It also brings me full circle, having written the book The Campaign of Century, which has the subtitle, “The Birth of Media Politics.”
We’ve carried plenty of items and videos on this important, often vexing, angle over the past six weeks, but now it will stand front and center every day. You’ll find the new postings in this same space under my byline, but you can bookmark this main feed now here. Thanks for your support for CampaignUSA 2012, and see you again Monday.
