Extreme Interview

The Cooler did an interview about blogging, the Caucus, and other topics over at Extreme Mortman. Below is a clip from the interview, click here to read the whole thing.

Mortman: Will blogs follow the mainstream media or will the mainstream media follow the blogs?

Caucus Cooler: Chicken or the Egg. MSM reporters all read the blogs religiously. Since bloggers have the advantage of not having to have sources for their info, they are much more conducive to rumors and innuendo. Oftentimes these rumors turn into facts and so the MSM has to catch up to a story that’s been in the blogs for a couple of weeks. On the flip side, most bloggers have other jobs, so the MSM reporters can do much more detailed research. They also have more resources in most cases. For that reason, we post a lot of MSM stories on the Cooler (particularly from smaller papers) and those stories drive the conversation we have on the blog. It’s a give and take.

We encourage you to check out Great blog.

    The Cooler line is an exclusive creation of Caucus Cooler and will be updated as the political environment changes.
    It is an unscientific assessment of the Iowa Caucus (not the Presidential race as a whole) from an insiders view at the given time. The line IS NOW mathematically accurate but is NOT intended for gambling purposes. Information may only be reproduced with credit to the Caucus Cooler.
