Blogging the media
If you like blogs (safe guess, since you're here) and have any interest in the media, you might want to shell out $10 tomorrow for the panel discussion at the LA Press Club. It's called Watching the Watchdogs: LA's Media Websites and will be moderated by blogger-turned-LA Times staffer Matt Welch. Panelists include LA Observed's Kevin Roderick, LA Radio's Don Barrett and Ron Feinman. They'll talk about how they keep tabs on local media and how they get those secret memos. We're curious about what they'll say, but also what the crowd thinks: will they conclude that blogs have a meaningful role, or that they're irrelevant? Plus, the press club always has booze — journalists know how to throw a panel discussion. Boozing/networking begins at 6:30pm, panel at 7:30. The LA Press Club is at 4773 Hollywood Boulevard.
