I realized this morning that I haven't really talked about what a marvelous paper the San Luis Obispo Tribune is. Really, I mean it. This is great paper. It brings clarity and insight to issues important to the Central Coast. You should pick up a copy today. Today, Sunday the 17th of October. The Central Coast Living section is the best part. Best to go there first. Why look, it's a newspaper story about blogs and the elections. What are the chances? Why look, I'm quoted several times. Craigorian Chant is a featured part of the story. What a pleasant surprise.
My favorite part:
As a Kerry supporter, Baracco's post-debate analysis was obviously bias. But thanks to his blog, www.craigorianchant.blogspot.com his views can reach just a many people as the post-debates spinners on CBS or Fox News
Bias! I'm insulted. Hey, I came to those conclusions in a fair-minded and evenhanded manner. The fact I'm always thinking Kerry did better is sheer chance.
I do have couple of beefs with the story: one small, one big. My small beef is with the photos. I look like a complete goof-ball with my mouth hanging open in the photo they ran. The guy with the conservative blog looks all sharp in a suit and tie (Do they issue suit and ties to young conservatives at birth?) Obviously this is a clear case of media bias. My real beef with the story is that it isn't online. I can't link to it! How are my parents going to read it? It was in story; we bloggers need stuff to link to. You can't run a story about a Soapbox in Cyberspace and not put the story online. It's just wrong.
