Iowa Independent Referenced In Washington Post

Iowa Independent, the most well-read blog in the state and one for which I write, was featured in The Washington Post.

Here is The Post story:

Iowa Independent, a group blog written by many of the leading lights of the state's growing blogosphere, draws more than 10,000 unique viewers a week, according to the site. It's a reported blog that's deliberately non-partisan. This weekend's top stories include a posting on Republican Rep. Ron Paul ("The Ron Paul Question: Will Enthusiasm Translate To Support?") and on turn-out for the Democratic candidates ("Western Iowa Could Decide Democratic Caucuses). In the latter, Douglas Burns, a veteran reporter-turned-blogger, writes:

The intense push in western Iowa, particularly among Democrats, is result of the disproportionate influence we wield in Iowa caucuses. In short, western Iowa will determine the Democratic finish here -- and most likely the next president of the United States.
