NRCC explains digital strategy behind sites targeting Democratic candidates




 Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele (L) speaks at the Republican National Congressional Committee's midterm election results watch party with Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) (R) at the Grand Hyatt hotel November 2, 2010 in Washington, DC. Most polling conducted ahead of today's elections point to a change in power in the House, where Republicans could win the 39 seats they need to take control of the chamber.

Last week, we spoke to National Journal Reporter Shane Goldmacher, who had written about some websites sponsored by the National Republican Congressional Committee that look like news sources, but aren't.

The group drew some criticism for these sites that Goldmacher and others in the media labeled "Fake News Sites." The NRCC wanted to share their reason behind these sites. Take Two is joined by Daniel Scarpinato, NRCC press secretary, to explain its overall digital strategy.
