The Washington Post’s Web site has added new features and new design elements to its politics section in anticipation of the 2008 presidential campaign season, which has already begun to heat up.
The site is adding two new blogs from political journalists Paul Kane and Mary Ann Akers; more emphasis on breaking news online (including “scoops”); comprehensive databases on the candidates, campaigns and records; and increased interactivity and multimedia.
“We are always looking for ways to make the best online resource for political news and analysis even better,” said Jim Brady, executive editor and vice president of Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive in a statement. “With the 2008 race for the White House already underway, it is imperative we are ready to support the information needs of our readers, from the casual follower to the most devoted political junkies.”
