Re: “Local Politics Goes to the Blogs

CP: The origins of Pittsburgh political blogging are lost in the mists of a few years ago. In mid-2004, when David DeAngelo and Maria Lupinacci began 2 Political Junkies -- widely cited as one of the oldest and most-read political blogs in the city -- they had already spent a year perpetrating Honsberger Is a Liar. KDKA's right-wing radio talker never acknowledged -- on air -- the pair's daily critique of his opinions, they say. If I recall correctly, probably the first political blog to hit the local scene and one of the first nationally was 'Grant Street 99' which began publishing in 1999. That site was around before the word 'blog' was a word. It lasted maybe a year, but definitely left it's mark.
