GOP Convention: Bloggers Suddenly More Important

The major media are leaving Minneapolis-St. Paul and heading to the Gulf Course to cover Hurricane Gustav. Print media reporters will do the same, which means there will be more opportunities for bloggers/citizen journalists at the Republican Convention. People hungry for current news about the convention won't get it as well as previously hoped for, so many will turn to bloggers on the ground. Two of the finest citizen journalists out there arrived in St. Paul this evening and are ready to make the rounds. Watch friends MARATHON PUNDIT and BACKYARD CONSERVATIVE for some of the best on the spot reporting, no doubt getting information and interviews that even the "big" media won't - or could not - get.
