The big time

Major props to Bob Cox, founder of the Media Bloggers Association, for getting recognition on page 1 of the New York Times today for his single-minded and single-handed effort to get bloggers accredited to cover federal trials: Libby’s is the first.

: LATER: As some commenters make bluntly clear, I was apparently wrong attributing the accreditation to Bob’s single-handed work. FiredDog, they say, lobbied hard. No conspiracy here, folks (and certainly no sexism.. jeesh!). I was just aware of Bob’s hard work as the process went on. Congrats to all. No need for growling about it.
