The Democratic Daily Gets a Plug on CNN’s “The Situation Room”

I received a email a little while ago from Joseph at MartiniRepublic, that The Democratic Daily had received a plug today from CNN’s “Inside the Blogs”. The discussion on “The Situation Room” was on the story I posted earlier today about the GOP paying the legal bills of former Bush campaign official James Tobin, who has been charged with conspiring to keep Democrats from voting in New Hampshire.

I am hoping that someone comes up with a video clip for us, but in lieu of that here’s the transcript of the plug from today’s “The Situation Room“.

“JACKI SCHECHNER, CNN INTERNET REPORTER: Well, Wolf, this was an A.P. wire story that the liberal bloggers are making sure does not fall through the cracks. There’s plenty of them linking to it today, ones like the Democratic Daily and they have a link to the article and then a summary of what it’s talking about.”

NOTE: The Democratic Daily has been online for three weeks. Thanks to our loyal followers and the many blogs who have been linking to us, our traffic and readership is growing daily.

    Hopefully we can get a video of this.

    Traffic certainly has been growing. As before at LUTD page loads are averaging over 1000 per day. Our record day of 9427 surpassed all our previous records at either blog.

    The above is from StatCounter. The new site also has its own stat counter which always seems well above StatCounter. If we go with their count we even broke 10,000 with 10,791 page loads on August 2.
