The Democratic convention in Boston has included bloggers in their media coverage of the event. NY Times presents convention bloggers as "Diarists." That's an interesting way to put it. Some bloggers are upset by that description.
The Wall Street Journal's report of the bloggers includes more detailed coverage of the bloggers covering the event. For a little humor on the convention, check out Tom Burka's Opinions you should have. Dinner for America is interested in keeping the 18-29 crowd aware. Although I'm about the leave that section of the population (turning 30 in September), they're supposedly non-partisan so I'll include them here. Command Post is being represented in Boston by a fellow Philadelphian Alan Nelson. Jessamyn West, who runs librarian.net, will of course be covering issues important to librarians. You can find her coverage of the convention here.
Enjoy the views from these "diarists" to balance out the coverage from the traditional sources. In the meantime, I'll be finding fair and balanced coverage by switching between CNN and FNC.
