UtneCast: The UpTake’s Jason Barnett on the Changing Face of the Media During the RNC

UpTake InterviewThroughout the Republican National Convention, the offices of the UpTake were a central hub for bloggers and independent media. Located just outside the security barrier that protected the Xcel Center in downtown St. Paul, bloggers including Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake, Glenn Greenwald of Salon.com, Matt Stoller of Open Left, and many others used the office to file stories and report on both the official RNC events and the protests.

For the latest episode of the UtneCast, I spoke with Jason Barnett (pictured left), executive director of the UpTake, about what his organization hopes to add to the coverage of the RNC and how technology is changing the media.
