After the Party of European Socialists (PES) (see here), now the European Green Party (EGP) is starting to target bloggers, inviting three of them - fully financed - to the EGP congress in Brussels at the end of this month.
Yet, I think this goes one step to far. It's true that most bloggers are writing for their own pleasure, for their narcism, for their idealism, for their [insert your own interpretations] and might not possess the funds to visit a party congress in Brussels.
But financing bloggers (as financing journalists) sounds more like buying a service than asking for a critical coverage of political activities.
I am not sure that I like that.
Under the category "European parliament elections 2009" I am following up national and European activities on the path to the European Parliament elections 2009.
