Journalist (and blogger) Cathy Seipp hosted a panel on on bloggers and politics for the L.A. Press Club last night. Mack Reed at LAVoice has a pretty complete transcript of the event. Here is his description of the panel:
- Moderator, journalist, blogger and former Buzz queen Cathy Seipp
- Matt Welch, veteran blogger and journalist
- Charles Johnson, editor of the fiery anti-terrorist blog LittleGreenFootballs
- Kevin Drum, former author of Calpundit and now blogger of the Washington Monthly’s Political Animal
- Roger L. Simon, mystery novelist and screenwriter who took up blogging to promote a book ("I haven’t written a novel or a screenplay since!" he jokes upon introduction.)
- Sassy Republican Moxie, who Seipp said "represents the 20% of women bloggers"
- And Slate political pundit Mickey Kaus
Find out what they had to say.
JournalCon 2004 (this year it’s in DC) will be having a similar panel.
