Bloggers on the planes


I like this.?? British network ITV News has reporters with each of the major party candidates, and each is blogging away from the campaign plane, bus or train.?? Not revolutionary, by any means (common practice these days), but I'm enjoying the tone of the reporters' postings.

Bill Neely with Conservative Party leader David Cameron.

Lucy Manning with Labour's Gordon Brown

Angus Walker with the LibDems' Nick Clegg

ITV's Alastair Stewart (is he the network anchor?) isn't traveling with the candidates, but he's embracing the real spirit of blogging. His posts feel natural, and are interesting for their insights into politics and his role in covering it. Similarly, you gotta love Tom Bradby's post about what it's like to interview Gordon Brown.
