Washington's public-affairs network, TVW, has launched its own news blog about state government matters. Given who they've picked to run it -- former Tacoma News-Tribune reporter and blogger Niki Sullivan -- it's pretty safe to predict that it's going to become a must-read. It's called capitolrecord.org.
It’s true: TVW, Washington state’s version of C-SPAN, “dares to be dull.” But the point of TVW starting a blog is to make government and public policy accessible — and the aim of accessibility extends to writing in plain English about the things that affect you.
Interestingly, the blog won't allow comments. If you got comments on what you see, Sullivan says, tell them to your lawmakers.
