ABSTRACT
This article offers insights about online interviewing, and the role of the Internet in political reporting in the U.S. As the date of the primary neared in New Hampshire, a number of workers were scouring voters lists and setting appeals to Howard Dean supporters on the list of unofficial Web sites backing his campaign, such as Doctors for Dean, Deadheads for Dean, Dykes for Dean, and Geeks for Dean. To try online interviewing, the author had accessed the Outlandish Josh Web site. Josh Koenig, owner of the Web site, is a graduate of New York University with a bachelor of fine arts degree in theater, and he is active in the music promotion business. Koenig shared with the author, through online, the story of how he heard of Dean in the fall of 2002. Turns out that found out about Dean when he began protesting the U.S.-led war in Iraq. However, it was not until Koenig saw Dean speak--watching him online on C-SPAN.org three weeks after he had delivered an antiwar speech at the California Democratic Convention--that Koenig turned into a supporter of Dean in the Internet. This online interview had left the author with a sense of the Internet's power as a tool for both campaigning and for covering campaigns in the U.S.
