Perhaps the biggest challenge of blogging about the New York Times is the sheer volume of its output. The political section seems to publish something new every hour.
Sure, you have the straightforward preview of the Democratic convention. But you also have a profile of President Barack Obama that details his perfectionist streak. Michael Shear offers his advice to the Democrats as they gather in Charlotte, N.C. Nate Silver has a data-filled, historical look at how jobs numbers impact an election.
And I haven't even gotten to the opinion, like this analysis of what running for vice president will mean for Paul Ryan. Nor have I mentioned the visual features, like this electoral map or this presentation of Romney's promises.
What must be nice about working at the Times is that if the story is important enough, you and your colleagues probably cover every interesting angle. For instance, you have this piece from one of the Times' blogs that said that reporters are no longer able to keep up with the campaigns. Few papers are able to spare someone to turn the spotlight around and point it at the media.
Ultimately, I'm pleased with The New York Times' coverage. It isn't perfect, but many of the stories have an interesting spin, rather than just a repeat of what every other outlet is doing.
