YouTube and Its Impact on Politics

YouTube has forever changed political communication and campaigning. For those interested in exploring this topic further,  Mass Communication professor, Dr. LaChrystal Ricke, has just signed a deal with Lexington Books to write YouTube and Its Impact on Politics.  Dr. Ricke says the book will discuss the evolution of YouTube and its impact on political campaigning, in-office communication, as well as public engagement and debate. She says the book will be an excellent tool for journalists and political practitioners to understand YouTube’s journey from that of a primarily commercial enterprise to a digital platform with substantial and sustained political impact. When the book comes out, the Global Center for Journalism and Democracy will feature a discussion with Dr. Ricke. Stay tuned!
