Dominance on Talk Radio vs. the Internet

Frank Luntz weighs in:

On a more serious note, Luntz said it’s a problem that the electorate chooses to watch news programs not for information but to confirm already-held beliefs, and that applies to viewers of CNN and Fox News as well.

Luntz predicted a Barack Obama victory and said that one of the many reasons the Democrats have been more effective with their message is because, while Republicans dominate talk radio, Democrats have begun to dominate the Internet.

“I’d rather have the Internet,” he said.

Obama also gets credit because he’s a better communicator than past Democrats, Luntz said, comparing the previous Democratic presidential nominee, John Kerry, to one of those trees that threw apples at Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.”
