THE PLANE TRUTHS
I've come to the personal conclusion that I actually want the country to see who I am, who I really am. But I don't know what the result of that will be. But for me personally, I'd rather be successful or unsuccessful based on who I really am, not based on some plastic Ken doll that you put up in front of audiences."
"That's Senator John Edwards on a trip to Iowa in 'Plane Truths, the first of a webisode series of behind the scenes with John Edwards." Edwards is breaking new ground with his netroots outreach through podcasts, videos, blogger meet and greets and the One America Committee blog. Move over Dean! ;) I expect netrooers will become more empowered than ever before, during this presidential election. And...it's up to all of us to take it to a new level and utilize all of the tools at our disposal.
Youtube is a particularly valuable tool, as we have all seen, particularly in the case of the WNCNN videos. Videos are not just for netrooters, but more and more candidates are uploading on youtube.
Here's what Newsweek had to say about the recent John Edwards webisode videos:
The documentaries—which show the former senator on trips to Iowa and Africa, and places in between—are a start. In one installment, Edwards mocks a memo prepared by staffers reminding him to praise the value of public education when speaking to a group of public-school teachers. "I pay a lot of money for people who have the expertise to tell me that."
The Webisodes are the brainchild of Rielle Hunter, a filmmaker who met Edwards at a New York bar where Edwards was having a business meeting. "I didn't think it was John Edwards," Hunter recalls, "because the public persona did not mesh at all with the person who was sitting in front of me." Hunter pitched Edwards on the documentaries as a medium for bringing the "real John Edwards" to the people."
