Article from the Minnesota
The battle over bloggers being paid for their services has been joined by the big fish in the pond. First read this article by Robin Marty at Minnesota Monitor/Power Liberal. Then read this response by the article's target. Notice a difference? That's right, kids - most of the charges actually leveled (and covered by empirical evidence) are not touched by Mr. Brodkorb in his response; namely, the increase in his posting on the Senate race after commencement of his employment by Mark Kennedy for Senate.
For those who don't know, the Minnesota Monitor is a "project" of the "New Journalist Program" featuring a "coalition of long-time progressive bloggers, freelance writers, and professional journalists" (meaning they're an arm of the DFL in philosophy if not in actuality) who are...
paid to "blog".
Note the absense of scare quotes around "paid."
