The DNC’s state blogger credentialing process is on the verge of becoming a fiasco

The DNC's state blogger credentialing process is on the verge of becoming a fiasco. Marc Ambinder discovered a letter from 21 credentialed state bloggers who are protesting the exclusion of their progressive colleagues from the convention. They allege that some bloggers were chosen for their party loyalty, and not for their progressive bona fides. "The Democratic Party endangers its own long-term viability when it makes fealty a criterion for inclusion," they write. Matt Stoller calls the credentialing of Cathleen Carrigan, an employee of Michigan Governer Jennifer Granholm "simply absurd… Granholm can get her employees credentials, she doesn't need to take them from independent progressive activists." We think it's about time for some damage control from Howard Dean.
