Sign of the Times

In Monday’s New York Times profile on Sen. Chris Dodd, reporter Mark Leibovich remarks that Dodd is no longer covered by any members of the Connecticut press corps:

[Dodd] points out that there have been no Connecticut-based reporters covering the daily doings of the state’s delegation in Washington, compared with a few years ago, when there were several. They have been replaced by a “blizzard” of political bloggers, gossip columnists and cable news partisans. “It gets to a point where no one is really covering what you’re doing,” Mr. Dodd said.

The Atlantic considers this both “remarkable and sad.”

  1. CT Mirror just hired a Washington reporter

  2. Almost sounds like Dodd has a notion that if there were reporters in D.C. covering his good work, then he never would have been hounded into retirement. Quite a stretch.
