Billed as a “multiple-editor weblog broken up into three major political affiliations” Watchblog attempts to go were no blog has gone before, covering 3 streams of US politics in the one blog. Whilst being representative of the new wave of power blogs, those which seek to capture the imagination of the viewer and shape current events, the blog seeks to provide too much to too many.

By Glenn Harlan Reynolds
Well, after that opening pun I suppose there’s nowhere to go but up. . . .
