The bloggers lounge at the DNC
The so-called "bloggers lounge" at the Pepsi Center during the Democratic National Convention, which I got a chance to eyeball on Wednesday, was a small room accessible through a door in the press room. The space was small, poorly lit, and had an ugly couch in one corner, as if the folks at the convention assumed that all bloggers really do live in basements and wanted them to feel at home. This stereotype is proving mighty tough to kill. -- Michael Roberts
