Hillary Clinton calls for government bloggers
Even Bill Hobbs wouldn't argue with this one, right? In a bit about government openness and transparency, New York senator Hillary Clinton told a crowd of supporters in Manchester that "maybe we ought to have teams of government bloggers" to tell the American people about what is happening in each federal agency.
Letting the existing bureaucrats blog is one thing; hiring extra people just to do that is quite another.
That's my initial reaction, anyway.

Will agencies be completely open about their activities and blog about them? No. Will independent bloggers carry the torch and shed light on bureaucrat activity? They already do that the best they can.
Let's all say it together, d e s p e r a t e.

As good as this sounds, any more government is a bad idea.

Teams of government bloggers to NOT tell you the same stuff that the teams of government flacks are already NOT telling you.
Redundant and costly.
