Per this post, resident malcontented edublogger Alexander Russo starts grumbling about bloggy favoritism…you knew that was coming. Independent doesn’t mean “on the one hand/on the other hand” you’re allowed to have a point of view. It’s about transparency. Russo’s grasping at edustraws. The Spellies didn’t invite Eduwonk because they see it in the same way they see the WaPo, Ed Week or other media, but rather because a lot of people read it and they figured they might as well try to get the word out unfiltered (and Spellings didn’t even get rough with me about my sources over there…). Also, hard to miss that Russo has now accused me of being in the tank for the Spellies and for the DNC…I can’t keep up!
