Spin cycle

From Wired News:

... [T]he McClatchy newspaper group is bringing an experimental kind of online audio C-Span experience to the citizens of the world through the web. The group's Washington DC bureau has started to post MP3s of presidential campaign conference calls online.

McClatchy's online division started recording the calls in the run-up to the March 4 primaries "when these conference calls seemed to be proliferating at a rapid pace," says Mark Seibel, McClatchy's Washington bureau's online managing editor.

"We decided to post the campaign conference calls for our readers to listen to if they choose in the interest of maximizing transparency," says Robert Rankin, McClatchy's government and politics editor.

Information is available at the alt.campaign box on the home page of the DC website; an RSS feed of campaign audio is available here.
