Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.
This week, Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama square off against each other on their first of three debates. I have a feeling the audience will be a decent sized one.
Needless to say, no matter who wins, the Obama media will call it for the President and release new polls showing the president ‘won.’ You can also expect skewed exit polls showing President Obama winning handily and early calls of states ala’ Florida in 2000 to occur in a final effort to suppress GOP turnout.
Many of these people refer to themselves as journalists, when in fact, they’re just campaign operatives. Not a good place for a free society to be.
You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.
Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category and return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week.
It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members, while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?
