Setting the record straight: first blogger interview with a presidential candidate

Turns out I was wrong. Liberal Oasis was not the first blogger to interview a presidential candidate. That distinction goes to Jerome Armstrong of He met with Howard Dean in June of 2002.

And if you want to see the early (and I mean early) coverage on Howard Dean, you can do no better than to browse through Jerome’s posts about Governor Dean that go all the way back to April 26, 2002. It makes for some great reading. (And it also reminds you how much Jerome’s posts are missed.)

(Final trivia note for the night: is the site perhaps most famous for being where Mathew Gross got his start. Within a couple months, he was working full time in Burlington as the Dean campaign’s chief blogger.)

  1. Thanks for posting this. It has been fascinating to go back and read comments in the blogs from earlier this year as well as last year.
