blueamerica-banner-1.gifThe San Antonio Express-News is reporting that Blue America candidate Rick Noriega has made some unfortunate comments about bloggers in a speech before the Texas Broadcasters Association:

“We’ve seen talk radio become an organizing tool for the die-hard right, while liberals are credited with turning the blogosphere into a political weapon. Each of those media has a targeted demographic group and works them into an ideological lather,” Noriega said.

“This, I believe, is damaging to the political culture in this country.”

Considering the support we’ve given Noriega as a Blue America candidate, these comments were extremely disconcerting. Noriega will be here tomorrow at 1pm PT/4pm ET for a special Blue America session to discuss his statement with the community.
