Tarrant puts Baruth's blog post on his website

Posted By on Thu, Jun 8, 2006 at 4:20 PM

This is weird on many levels.

If you go to Rich Tarrant's campaign website, and click on the News section, you'll see a list of links to media outlets under the heading "In the News" (note the absence of a link to Seven Days, or the Vermont Guardian, or any of the state's smaller weeklies, many of which have websites).

Underneath that there's another heading — "News Articles." This contains links to stories, reprinted on Tarrant's website, from the Rutland Herlad (yes, it's misspelled), the Burlington Free Press and the AP. It also, inexplicably, links to a blog post by Philip Baruth of Vermont Daily Briefing.

Here's what's weird. Ok,
1) Philip Baruth can't stand Rich Tarrant.
2) Since when is a blog post by a "partisan operative" a news article? I thought Vermont's Republicans rejected that idea.
3) Tarrant's people obviously did not ask for permission to post Baruth's words in their entirety. Isn't that bad form?

Baruth responds here.

My question is, will candidate Tarrant treat all bloggers like journalists?

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
