Dispatches from the DNC
This newswire article is composed of stories reposted at during the day before the start of the democratic national convention in Denver. The morning antiwar march starting at Civic Center park has been forecasted as one of the largest events in terms of public participation, at the start of 5 days of political response to the convention. A lot of independent and indymedia journalists will be attending the DNC and RNC, and will be contributing work, and it seems like the large volume of reports coming back could make it difficult to filter out the most important highlights. Coverage of the protest angle by local newspapers the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News has been mediocre, with many errors and a gawking focus on potential for violence by protesters. Indybay has good ranking in the news crawlers and aggregator sites, so hopefully copying material here can point a national audience to better independent reports.
