Sexism, netroots, and the 2008 primary

Blogging On The Bus: What About The Sexism?

Eric Boehlert’s book,“bloggers on the bus: How the Internet Changed Politics and the Press”, is a tour de force about the rise of activist political blogging that deftly describes the rise of political blogging in the Bush Era. It takes the issue of political blogging and its effect on politics and journalism seriously and provides many first person accounts of how it came about. As part of the story, Boehlert reports on the period of the 2008 Democratic primary. That portion of the book will anger many in the blogosphere. Perhaps it should. But perhaps they should also consider whether the book portrays the episode accurately. I believe it does.

This is probably the most important book that will be written about the 2008 campaign.

Edit –
Glad to know you are thinking about it. Read the damn book!
