A Seat at the (Blogging) Table
The lines drawn at the Democratic National Convention may be more than just partisan ones.
In a story for Online NewsHour, National Minority Consortia reporter Adam Serwer explored the disparities perceived by some black bloggers in getting credentialed for the Democratic National Convention coming up in August.
"I don't get the excuses they make. It's almost insulting. All they'd have to do was do the outreach," said blogger L.N. Rock, known online as the African American Political Pundit. "It's almost as extreme as 'we couldn't find any black people for that position.'"
The National Minority Consortia includes producers and reporters focused on creating content that addresses a range of minority issues.
