Lieberman’s Internet Outreach: So Web 1.0 It’s Frightening
Posted on Jul 7, 2006
Want to see everything you need to know about how hopelessly out of touch Sen. Joe Lieberman is with the next generation of voters? Check out his campaign website, then check out the site of challenger Ned Lamont:
Immediately after the candidates’ Thursday night debate, Lamont’s site was jam-packed with video highlights, media reactions, blogger coverage and fact-checked responses to Lieberman’s charges. Lieberman’s site, however, barely even mentions the debates; there’s nary a blog; and his “news” page
hasn’t been updated since Monday. (Update: 12 hours after the debate, the campaign posted a few paragraphs—but that’s it.) It’s such a tone-deaf approach you have to wonder who’s minding the shop over there.
Not to belabor the point, but
Lieberman’s (thanks, nit picker) Lamont’s team has so fully embraced its netizens that they’re not even shy about prominently linking to a blog called My Left Nutmeg.

Truthdig’s interview with Lamont
The websites of primary challenger Ned Lamont and Conn. Sen. Joe Lieberman tell you everything you have to know about the two campaigns. Lamont’s is fast-reacting, flush with up-to-the minute blog posts, links to external bloggers, video highlights of the Thursday night debate, media response to the exchange, etc. Lieberman doesn’t even have a blog.
