CBS Launches Political Hotsheet
Posted on December 4, 2008CBS has launched a new blog called the Political Hotsheet. The first post talks about transitioning to the new blogs from two other blogs CBS used to cover the election. Now they sound focused on covering the new Obama administration.
For the past fifteen months, CBS News and CBSNews.com have been delivering all the campaign and political news, developments, and analysis on our Horserace and From The Road blogs.There will still be plenty of interest in politics even though the election is over. However, it won't be quite the traffic monster it was in October and November of this year. CBS News is going from two political blogs to just the one. You should be able to watch traffic to political blogs like Huffingtonpost.com, politico.com and hotair.com fall steadily from their Fall election peaks on charts like this one.
The Horserace is over, and the time for governing is about to begin for a new president and a new congress. Today we're launching the Political Hotsheet, a new blog which will combine the best Washington reporting, analysis and observations from the correspondents and producers at CBS News and CBSNews.com, and partners like the Washington Post and Politico. We'll also point you to the must-read stories across the Web. The Hotsheet will bring it all together in one place.
From the transition to the incoming president's first 100 Days in office and beyond, we'll keep you up on the very latest happenings in what�s about to become one of the busiest and most closely-watched towns in the world. Hotsheet will chronicle the news from the White House, Congress and all the institutions in Washington during these historic and uncharted days.
