GOP will “invite” bloggers

The GOP jumped on the blogger bandwagon this week, inviting a first wave of 20 bloggers to be credentialed for the September convention. Salon.com reports that the Republicans invited “those [bloggers] who we believe are moderate in their tone,” rather than intitiate an application process like that conducted by Democratic Convention organizers.

While the names of the invitees haven’t been made public yet, the blogger opinions will fly once it is. On its face, an “invite only” credential process doesn’t exactly exude an air of fairness, and even some high-profile bloggers are sure to be left out.

There’s no requirement that the Republicans had to be fair, though; Lord knows the blogosphere isn’t.
