How politicians are using social to sidestep the media

To activate the voting public, politicians are increasingly dodging the mainstream media and going straight to social. Elizabeth Losh, Duane A. and Virginia S. Dittman Professor of American Studies and English at William & Mary, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the realities of direct access to politicians through our devices – and the many ways Twitter, TikTok and other platforms can disrupt democracy. Her book is “Selfie Democracy: The New Digital Politics of Disruption and Insurrection.”
