Well, maybe. For what it’s worth, I was able to learn that the domain name blognetnews.com is owned by one David Mastio of Chesapeake, Va., the same guy whose name appears at the bottom of the e-mail.
Further investigation reveals that Mastio is a former editorial writer for USA Today, a former speechwriter for President Bush, and a frequent contributor to conservative publications such as National Review and the Weekly Standard. (Not to be too coy — I Googled him. This ain’t rocket science.)
Blognetnews.com/Mass is part of InOpinion.com, which is “an opinion syndicate” Mastio founded “aimed at helping newspapers attract young, net-savvy readers.”
“The Blogs of BNN” have a decidedly GOP-leaning tilt to them. But it seems to be pretty open — apparently it will list any Boston blog in exchange for a link.
