On its Twitter site, Idaho Reporter announces that it is celebrating its first birthday as an online news source of Idaho politics. Tweets IR: "We thank our loyal readers for a great first year! We also look forward to the future of our site as we continue working for a more transparent and open government. Now, time to eat cake." I know the hard core of our Left Bank will never accept Idaho Reporter as a legit news source as a result of its ties to the Idaho Freedom Foundation. But I consider the news site as a welcome addition to the Idaho blogosphere. Dustin, Brad, and the two Jays have provided news coverage over the past year that others have missed. I'm glad they're out there. BTW, the Capitol Correspondents Association gave Idaho Reporter a lump of coal for a birthday present today by again denying the outlet legislative credentials.

Question (which I know is going to attract a snarky remark or two from the usual suspects): Have you changed your view of Idaho Reporter over the past year?
