Center Interim Director is a Guest Expert for University of Texas Mid-Term Election Blog

10.07.2010

Sherri Greenberg, interim director for the Center for Politics and Governance, is once again making her mark in political discourse. Greenberg has agreed to do a four part video series on analysis of the Mid-Term elections as a part of the University of Texas at Austin's KNOW Mid-Term Blog Series which looks at the critical issues in this November's mid-term elections. Her first video premiered today on the "No-Debate" Debate.

Greenberg's thesis is that across the country, candidates are turning away from traditional televised debates in favor of the more controlled online outlets. Greenberg says,"This may be a situation where candidates have really said, 'I don't need this anymore. I don't need this type of media. I don't need the TV, because I have my own outlets. I can get online now. I have YouTube, and I can push out online what I want, and people can be sitting right at their computers looking at those screens. So I don't have to participate in that televised debate.'" You may view Greenberg's Analysis on the Blog's site: http://www.utexas.edu/know/2010/10/04/mid_term_elections/
