It’s now standard operating procedure for U.S. Presidential candidates to circumvent traditional media to throw their hats in the ring, stake claims on the issues, stump for votes and create virtual personalities. How are journalists keeping up? How, ultimately, does this translate to voters? In this fun, insightful session, top political reporters share the trends they’re seeing in the 2016 campaign, and which major candidates are leading the charge or completely missing the digital boat.
