The Reader team has always been interested in politics, and we use Reader (of course) to stay current on all the political happenings. As we were reading and sharing amongst ourselves, it got us thinking: what would happen if political newsmakers used Reader too?
Today we're announcing Google Power Readers in Politics: leading political journalists and both U.S. presidential campaigns using Reader to read and share news. You can read what they read, and see what's on their minds as they share and discuss news. Each participant has created a reading list with a feed you can subscribe to in Reader (or any other feed reader), and is also publishing shared items. Here's the list of participants:
- Obama and McCain campaigns
- Mike Allen, POLITICO
- Chuck DeFeo, Townhall
- John Dickerson, Slate
- Mark Halperin, TIME
- Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post
- Ruth Marcus, Washington Post
- Jon Meacham, Newsweek
- Patrick Ruffini, The Next Right
Visit http://www.google.com/powerreaders to get an overview, and subscribe to what you're most interested in using Reader. We're excited to see what's newsworthy this election season - we hope you will be too!
