Jane And Big Media Matt Survey The Electoral Scene

Our Very Own Jane had a Bloggingheads conversation with Matthew Yglesisas of the Atlantic earlier this week. It’s pretty sedate, as conversations between two progressives tend to be, but it still makes for fascinating viewing because, as always, their insights on a pretty broad range of subjects (the campaign so far, Obama, McCain, and the media) are razor sharp. The sample at left, wherein they discuss the difference between journalists and bloggers, is especially interesting.

You can go here for the full hour’s conversation.
