Newsjunk podcast with Joe Trippi

We just did a podcast with Democratic consultant Joe Trippi about today’s Democratic Rules Committee meeting, and the next steps in the nominating process. You can listen to our first podcast, or subscribe for now through Scripting News


We’re tracking today’s Dem Rules Committee meeting

All the blogs and major news outlets are covering the amazing Democratic Rules Committee meeting.

We’re tracking the stories as they come in on the new home page of the NewsJunk site.

This is the first public viewing of our Open Campaign Briefing Book.

More on the philosophy of it later, but today there’s TONS of news.

Ickes predicts defection

Tomorrow is a big day in Democratic politics.

Nicco — any ideas about this?

Welcome to the NewsJunk blog!

Welcome to the NewsJunk blog, it’s part of a project that I’m starting up with my friend Nicco Mele.

It’s about the news of politics. We’re not going for the cream of the crop, we’re not distillers, we’re wholesalers, a proprietor of bulk news. The river floweth here. Don’t blink you might miss a scandal. 🙂

It’s called NewsJunk cause it’s for junkies, not mere users. 🙂

The blog is just a small part of the project. More will be revealed in due time.

PS: The Twitter feed NewsJunkies is one way of getting the flow, and it’s just getting started. We’d have rather called it NewsJunk of course, but there already was an account with that name.
