„Was wir über unsere Gesellschaft, ja über die Welt, in der wir leben, wissen, wissen wir durch die Massenmedien.“ (Luhmann, 2009, S. 9)
Medien sind in unserem Leben heutzutage allseits präsent und selbstverständlicher Bestandteil des Alltags. Fernsehen – Hörfunk – Presse – net, das sind die Massenmedien der modernen Gesellschaft und die Instrumente, mit denen Menschen Informationen vermitteln und Meinungen austauschen. Und tatsächlich ist gerade die Vermittlung von politischen Informationen über die Medien heute so omnipräsent wie nie zuvor. Auch wenn die deutschen Politiker und Parteien nach über 15 Jahren der ökonomischen und privaten Internetnutzung erst verhältnismäßig spät beginnen, sich politisch mit dem jungen Medium auseinander zusetzten, nutzen sie es selbst analog dazu schon als Mittel der politischen Kommunikation. Ob Homepages, Blogs oder Soziale Netzwerke, ¬spätestens in Zeiten des Wahlkampfes haben Politiker und Parteien ihre Kommunikation im Netz stets modernisiert und erneuert.
