The twenty-first century has provided many changes in political campaign persuasion. In just the last few years, campaigns have evolved to where they now incorporate interactive candidate web pages that are used to build volunteer bases and raise funds. When it comes to political reporting, blogging and tweeting in real time by traditional journalists and everyday citizens alike is superseding traditional news reporting, with the Internet providing unfiltered and unedited information that is often recorded as it happens. Most people now have cell phones with still and video cameras, serving to keep politicians honest, but also keeping them constantly on their guard for fear of unscripted remarks that might ruin their careers. Finally, the Internet itself is a repository of political artifacts at our fingertips: Thanks to Google, Wikipedia, YouTube and more, we have access to almost any document, image, or film, and we have it almost instantly.
