Bloggers at the Republican convention

This was in my CBS Marketwatch email yesterday:

About a week away from the Republican National Convention in New York, fewer than two dozen people have been identified as planning to write Web logs around the event. published a list of 20 Web bloggers, including Alan Nelson of and as among those ready to give "yet another set of perspectives from the convention."

The writers include independent bloggers, media types and delegates. More than 120 bloggers wrote during last month's Democrat Party convention.

That's 20 Repugs vs. 120 Dems. But what did they expect? The Republicans are not looking for "another set of perspectives." It's more likely that they'll be passing out templates telling bloggers what to write and ejecting anyone who doesn't toe the party line.
