WaPo's Very Balanced Coverage of Netroots Nation

The Washington Post had a report on Sunday (6/19/11) from the left-liberal Netroots Nation conference. Actually, it's a report from two conferences: The Netroots event and a smaller right-wing affair which schedules its conference to coincide with the larger, liberal get-together–for a reason:

RightOnline's conference is smaller (about 1,200 people to Netroots' 2,500) and more focused on strategy than policy. RightOnline always makes sure to be in the same city, so the get-together is guaranteed more media attention.

Mission accomplished.
