Political Writers Name Must-Read Blogs

Some of America’s top political reporters have named the blogs they consider as must-reads in their course of work.

And the American Journalism Review (AJR) enquiry found that blogs maintained by mainstream media writers had a significant presence in the essentials lists of political journalists and bloggers.

So among the more predictable choices like the Huffington Post and Talking Points Memo were The Trail from the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal’s Washington Wire and The Note from ABC News.

In addition, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s American Debate blog from Dick Polman and Chris Cillizza’s The Fix blog on washingtonpost.com made appearances on reporters’ lists.

Submitting their lists to the AJR were political writers from the Huffington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Houston Chronicle, the Washington Post, ABC News, NPR and USA Today.

The article was inspired by a recent Brodeur study which found that the top five blogs read by a sample of almost 70 political reporters were:

The Huffington Post

Real Clear Politics

Talking Points Memo

Daily Kos
