Via DPF, I learn that the government is now treating bloggers as journalists and accrediting them for the budget lockup. This is good news. Most of us are a long, long way from doing anything remotely resembling journalism, but some occasionally make a serious effort, and I think it should be encouraged. Taking bloggers seriously and giving them media access encourages bloggers to take it seriously and gives the blogosphere the option of being something other than a sewer.
Unfortunately, DPF had a meeting - but Jordan Carter has taken advantage of the opportunity, and will be posting on the budget once he is released.
