Democratic Meeting Tells Loyal Bloggers to Leave
I used to be active in Democratic Party politics; I've been the chairman of American Democrats Abroad in Scandinavia, and a member of the Democratic Party Committee Abroad. So I do know how obtuse political parties can be (in many ways, they are the least responsive of organizations, far less so than well-run companies).
Still, "netizens" were immensely supportive of the Democratic Party in E2004. So it's disappointing to read Jerome Armstrong's report that he and other bloggers were booted from this weekend's DNC meeting for being.... bloggers.
The only -- only -- positive spin I can put on this is that the party suddenly realizes that bloggers are akin to press. But since these bloggers were partisan supportive press, it seems short-sighted to boot them.
