If You Can’t Beat ‘em, Join ‘em: Baltimore Sun Offers Blogs to All Maryland Candidates

Baltimore Sun's Candidates Blogs logo

Call it innovation, call it self-preservation, call it a traffic scheme, but the Baltimore Sun, one of the leading papers covering Maryland politics, has made the decision to offer a blog to every legally registered candidate running for office in the state of Maryland. The offer is bipartisan and covers both federal and state candidates. The paper’s site states the following:

The Baltimore Sun is offering free blogs to political candidates in key races this year. It is up to the candidate to decide whether to accept the blog invitation and to decide how often to post on the blog. The Baltimore Sun does not edit any candidate’s blog, and it is not responsible for any content posted by the candidate or the candidate’s representatives here.

On FDH Lounge Internet Radio Tonight at 9 Eastern

Hey kids! We’re back on the virtual airwaves tonight with Rick Morris and his FDH Lounge crew at 9 pm, so you be sure to listen on in at the appointed time. As always, Rick has a wildly mixed itinerary for the evening, and he and I should have plenty to talk about in our segment, from Netroots Nation and Wikileaks to the prospects for the Fall elections and the rest of the Obama presidency.

As always, it’ll be fascinating to see both where Rick and I disagree AND where a liberal iconoclast and a paleoconservative can find surprising accord. “See” you at 9, and as always I’ll post the link to the archived copy when it’s available.
