ABSTRACT
The author offers opinions on how the Web sites of major newspapers and television news broadcasting organizations have been employed in the coverage of the U.S. presidential election. Overall, they are seen to have been insufficiently employed, especially as the use of the Internet by the presidential candidates themselves has been a major news story. The author forecasts that by the 2012 election, all news organizations will operate so as to present their reporting and other content on their Web sites first and their newspaper or television outlet second. The use of video and other features will also supplement or even replace text on newspaper Web sites.
