Politicians Are Setting Up Their Own Media

MicrophonePoliticians aren’t just tweeting

Politicians are setting up their own media. They’re establishing live streams, blogs with catchy names and more to reach voters directly.

This phenomenon is yet another challenge to traditional media’s turf and adds to the reshaping of the political landscape.
