Google to convention bloggers: Welcome to Google!
Word is that Google will be offering Google-like accommodations to bloggers visiting both the Democratic and Republican conventions.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
Not only will bloggers have Internet access, workspaces and couches for napping in the "Big Tent" headquarters, they will be provided food and beverages, Google-sponsored massages, smoothies and a candy buffet.
All that for $100 a head.
With bloggers getting the royal treatment from Patron Saint Google, will traditional reporters be banging on the tent flaps, clamoring for equal time with the masseuses and, you know, a little effing respect?
