New Chronicle Election Blog

T San Francisco Chronicle has started a new blog focusing on the 2005 Special Election. Contributors include Chron political writer Carla Marinucci and Sac bureau writers Paul Feist and Lynda Gledhill.

An RSS feed is also available.

Though I haven't read all the content yet, I'm very interested to see how it progresses. In some respects, this MSMing of an alt.media concept seems too niche to make it as a feature. Why not just post short articles? But it's a good resource for checking out the paper's coverage of the political and policy issues at play.

One criticism so far: the use of that awful calendar as a way of accessing archived posts. Who thought/thinks that is the way to go?

Dan Weintraub, you now have 'spherical company.
