When the President of the United States speaks, everybody listens. At no time is this more apparent than during the State of the Union, an annual address that provides the president a prime-time forum to lay out the political agenda for the coming year.
Telling the story of an entire country in a single night is not easy, and with technology, the event has evolved over time. From missives tens of thousands of words long, to shorter speeches, to radio addresses to live TV broadcasts. This week, when Barack Obama gave his speech to the 114th Congress, both major US parties sought to tell competing stories of the last year in politics – and the web was their enabler.
