Bloggers on the road with John Edwards
Posted by rexdixon on December 29, 2006
Scobleizer brings up a valid point in his latest entry from Reno; on the road with John Edwards. How will the average every day blogger, such as Rex Dixon be able to under take a week long or more trek with John Edwards and crew? It is a question of ethics and as Robert suggested, perhaps some sort of blogger fund needs to be established.
To be a blogger or reporter you have to watch the fund line. Full disclosure. Kind of reminds me of the whole Ferrari incident. Enough of that though. I think we all have read enough on that for now.
Going on the road with John Edwards and watching the political process and reporting back to the web daily is something that should be the way this election in 2008 is covered. While the mainstream media is catching up, the bloggers, vloggers, podcasters, and other internet media types have know all along how to effectively get the word out there. It is the power of the people that should decide things. To do that, and to also have an unbiased by any monetary consideration view of the events that transpire around you, the blogger must some how be self funded. It is either self funded or have a blogger fund so that all costs associated with the undertaking will be covered adequately.
Technically Speaking, I can bet Robert Scoble along with the other bloggers out there now are having the experience of a lifetime.
