What Digital Media Can Teach Us About Politics

The political landscape continues to embrace digital, as it dictates how we learn about candidates and policies. Throughout the 2012 U.S. presidential election, Mashable has kept you updated on the most trending topics, from crowdfunding to online fact-checking to Big Bird. Furthermore, Mashable also launched its first ever e-book, Politics Transformed, an in-depth special report that takes an eye-opening look at how social media is shaking up politics.

At this year’s Media Summit, Mashable‘s US World reporter, Alex Fitzpatrick, and Salon‘s editor at large, Joan Walsh, will have an in-depth conversation about how digital is changing politics forever.
