The much yapped-about launch of Pajamas Media... er, make that Open Source Media is taking place today in New York City as well as on the web. I'm a part of it.
The initiative for the blogomerate and advertising network definitely comes from the right-of-center but with a vow to be inclusive and pluralistic. So far there are a handful of us from the liberal/left side who are trying to make that a reality.
I wasn't able to attend our big launch fiesta in New York as I've too much to do here in L.A. this week. But my Nation colleague, David Corn, is there. He files this report and neatly outlines the issues that he and I will be keeping our eye on. Like David, I want to make sure that OSM provides a strong voice for all points of view. One way we can help this along is to have other liberal bloggers join up. The door is wide open. To those liberals demanding more inclusiveness in media venues, it's time to put your blog where your mouth is. Lefty Max Sawicky is also on board -- with eyes wide open.
