NEWSPAPER BLOGS….I’m experimenting with something new over on the sidebar: newspaper blogs. Just below the regular blogroll there’s now a list of blogs written by major daily newspaper reporters and officially hosted by their newspaper.

I’ve started with three:

I’m not really endorsing the quality of these blogs (since I haven’t read any of them for long) and I don’t know how long I’ll keep this up, but I thought it might be interesting to track the evolution of “official” reporter-based blogs in daily newspapers. I’m sure there are others out there that I don’t know about, so if you know of one please leave a comment or send me email and I’ll add it.

NOTE: I realize there can be a thin line between a blog and a daily column that happens to be online. (Which is Eric Alterman, for example?) So, since it’s a judgment call and all that, I’ll decide who qualifies based on ? well, nothing, really. I think I’ll just go with the “I know it when I see it” standard. Nonetheless, decisions of the management are final….
