Bloggers to cover DNC
For the very first time, bloggers will be among the 15,000 accredited members of the press covering the Democratic National Convention which starts on July 26th. The Democratic National Committee has also started its own blog, Boston D Party, written by Matt Stoller and former Al Gore speech writer Eric Schnure.
The Republicans have followed suit and will issue press passes to select bloggers for their own convention which takes place in late August. The party has not yet published its own official convention blog, but one is in the making.
The site that brought political blogging into the mainstream, Howard Dean's Blog for America, is still alive and kicking, and gearing up for the big political season.
Now that bloggers have been given a real voice in this election, I hope one of those press passes doesn't go to Washingtonienne.
