Pajamas Media Blog Week in Review discusses the elections

The silver edition, that is, the 25th Pajamas Media Blog Week in Review is up and ready for download. Moderator Austin Bay is joined by video blogger, or vlogger Andrew Marcus (I met him at the DePaul Ward Churchill protest last fall), and Richard Miniter, Pajamas Media's Washington bureau chief.

For its Election 2006 coverage, a few lucky PJM bloggers, including friend-of-the-blog Solomonia, were handed small video cameras (Canon PowerShot A630 8MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Zoom) to cover the big day. Look for devices like these to be used increasingly in future political reporting.

But will bloggers sell out? That topic is also bandied about in the podcast. The meaning of that question is this: To gain access to politicians, will bloggers forgo tough questioning of them? Will they compromise coverage?

I guess we'll find out.

Ed Driscoll produces.

The podcast is sponsored by Volvo.
