The New York Times
gave some ink to two recent digital conferences in Minneapolis that were on opposite sides politically.
"It is no secret that much of the blogosphere is sharply, often loudly, divided by politics," the story starts out by saying. Netroots Nation
is liberal, while Right Online
has a conservative bent, the Times reports.
The groups scheduled their gatherings simultaneously in the city, mere blocks away from each other, the story notes.
at some of the cultural and ideological differences between the two
groups, the story shows how the vibrant politicking in Minneapolis is
demonstrative of the national political climate.
