A thought on citations

I was thinking about this blog the other day, and realized that I wasn't necessarily always quoting from news sources inside the district.

The problem with that is that you might be getting a much different view of the news from Texas 22 than the voters are.

So, in order to make the blog a reflection of the news that voters will see, most posts from now on will probably quote the Houston Chronicle. It's undeniably the most influential newspaper in district 22, and newspapers tend to set the story for local TV news coverage.

Here's what I expect to cite in the upcoming months, by frequency:
1. Houston Chronicle
2. AP
3. Smaller Houston/suburban papers
4. National coverage, when relevant.
5. Other Texas newspapers, for comparison with how they frame the story.
