Camelot, You Know, Meets the Media 2.0

camelot2.0.pngIt’s hard to imagine a more slippery, difficult media environment in which to launch your (very first political) campaign for a Senate seat than the one Caroline Kennedy appears to be encountering.

Behold the interview the AP did with Kennedy at a diner in Manhattan last week. The resulting article contained some notable quotes — Kennedy saying she’ll have to “work twice as hard,” and that she is an “unconventional choice” among others. All good stuff. However, the AP also released an audio version of the interview on YouTube, complete with pictures, which was picked up by The Daily Beast. The accompanying caption points out that Kennedy’s answers were “replete with ‘you knows.’” None of which made it into the article. Is Camelot ready for a 2.0 political world? Video after the jump.
