You may have noticed the blinking image on the right side of this site recently. It links to a new site, Politics in Stereo, that aims to give readers a view of state-based political news from blogs on the left and right, as well as one mainstream media outlet.
For Colorado, Politics in Stereo selected the Peak for the conservative perspective, our friends at Colorado Pols to represent the left, and The Denver Post for the mainstream media voice.
The site is the brainchild of the Deputy Editor of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report, Nathan Gonzales, who sought to find a way to bring the best state-based political reporting together in one place.
It appears to be a site targeted at the DC set, who are attempting to figure out what's going on outside the "Beltway bubble."
When the Presidential race narrows down to only a few states, like Colorado, Politics in Stereo will likely become an indispensable tool for national political reporters attempting to quickly find the full spectrum of political news from specific states.
In The Capitol, a DC-based political blog, recently interviewed Gonzales about his site:
If you could distill it down, what is the one thing you’d like to achieve with Politics in Stereo?
I want Politics in Stereo to make political news more accessible and differing ideological views more digestible to more people. So many people distrust the media and are so overwhelmed with their options that they don’t know where to start and too often just give up. We hope Politics in Stereo is an easy way for people to get political news in their own state and make it easy to find out what’s going on around the country.

We were honored to be selected and think the site has great potential. Give 'em a click when you get a chance.
