Under the Dome

Coffee at the Washington statehouse coffee shop (Under the Dome) yesterday with a couple statehouse reporters – Adam Wilson of the Olympian and Rich Roesler of the Spokane Spokesman Review, both fine bloggers – led to a Wilson post, which may be of interest (the focus being the Obama-Clinton race).

The statehouse reporters at Olympia work generally out of a building about a block from the legislative building called the Blue House (it formerly being a house, and it still being painted blue). It appears that the journalists working there overwhelmingly are bloggers, Wilson and Roesler being two examples. But the number is large and growing. Walking out of the building, we chatted briefly with a reporter from the Yakima Herald-Republic, who we thought wasn’t a blogger. Turned out, she was.

Before long, there may not be many reporters who aren’t.
