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!
