    The Name Isn't Everything - By Jonathan Tasini, Daily Blog
    I've been asked by a lot of people about my opinion of the AFL-CIO's new blog. My answer has been: what blog?
    The space the AFL-CIO created that it labels "blog" appears to me to be no different than the rest of the site: it's simply offering information (which is fine) but it prevents debate--a long-time hallmark of the AFL-CIO's culture that pre-dates the Sweeney Administration. No one can post comments. You're simply asked to absorb more propoganda and be interested in a one-way conversation.

    blog note: click the above link to read and post comments, something the AFL blog does not allow. rawblogxport commented on it here as well on the day it launched - Feb. 21, and immediately wrote to, and eventually received a reply from, one of their co-editors regarding the lack of useful news and comments on the AFL *super blog*.
