I want to call your attention this morning to a terrific new local blog. Campaign Outsider is written by John Carroll, formerly a fellow panelist on “Beat the Press” on WGBH-TV (Channel 2) and now senior media analyst on WBUR Radio (90.9 FM).
John and I worked on the set-up outside Northeastern’s Au Bon Pain a couple of weeks ago. He’s off to a strong start, weighing in today with a tough piece on the Washington Post’s pay-for-play scandal.
Currently a mass-communications professor at Boston University, Carroll has a long and distinguished career in print, radio and television. I’ve already plugged Campaign Outsider into Google Reader, and suggest you do the same.

Dan,Thanks for the update. So glad to see Carroll's writing and commentary again. I lost track of him (and the rest of Beat The Press) after we moved to Vermont : ( Thank God for the Internet(s).
Just as I'm checking out Carroll's blog, I read this priceless quote from Carroll:"Alaska governor Sarah Palin is the Manny Ramirez of American politics. For one thing, she’s living in a world of her own. For another, she sure seems like she’s on drugs." Excellent.
I wish John was on "Beat The Press" again from time to time…
