: Just got called to be on Brian Lehrer’s show on WNYC and Sirius at 10:40a ET to talk about Zephyr Teachout’s post yesterday. Stream here.
:See Glenn’s additional posts here, including notes from Jerome that he quit blogging during this time and responses from Kos. Here’s Zephyr’s folo.
: On Lehrer’s show, I made something clear I’ll make clearer here: Kos and MyDD didn’t do anything wrong (one put up a disclosure, the other stopped blogging). That’s not the point of the discussion. If anybody did anything wrong in this, it could be argued that the Dean campaign did by trying to buy the voice of the bloggers (even though they already had their strong support). But that’s not the real point, either. The points that Zephyr raises about our opportunity to define our culture and how the expectations of our public are what interest me. That’s worth discussing (without all the brickbats back and forth from the various partisans here; I’m separate from that because I never backed Dean and you couldn’t have paid me to).
