Clinton Bypasses Media by Reaching Out to Voters through Website

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton announced over the weekend that she's creating a presidential exploratory committee, the first step toward her run for the White House. She did so not through the media but on her website.

Then, Monday night, she held the first of three webcasts in which participants asked questions of Clinton on issues facing the country.

Lee Coppola is dean of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at St. Bonaventure University. He joined us on the phone Monday afternoon to discuss Clinton's strategy of bypassing the media.
