Confirmed: the people who bring us our campaign news all read the same handful of blogs (HuffPo, Ambinder, TPM, The Page…).*
Via AJR, some communications firm asked 69 political reporters to list their must-read blogs and the results are so ho-hum predictable. Doesn’t seem healthy. Conventional wisdom is catching. You guys need to get out more.
Repeat after me: I “must read” The Kicker. I “must read” Campaign Desk…
*Yes, yes. We read them, too.
