Jacki Schechner is probably best known as an on-air Internet reporter or "blogger chick" for CNN. She spent a good deal of time examining how the media, both online and off, covered political campaigns. She writes her own blog and has an occasional guest post and podcast at Americablog. She recently interviewed Senator Kerry and Speaker Gingrich for the Virtual Energy Forum. She also had some interesting thoughts on the whole AP "fair use" fiasco.
Jacki just started working as communications director for Healthcare for America Now, a new grassroots campaign with an obvious mission, based on the name.
I asked Jacki some questions that focused on the nexus of journalism, online communication, and politics. Enjoy.
