Anyone foolish enough to believe they would be receiving any "inside information" or truly "live reports" was indeed naive.  I couldn't find anything that could even be loosely defined as "live-blogging."  Instead, what readers got was PR propaganda which had probably been cleared by a dozen or so staffers before being published. 

Of course, in fairness, this is why campaign blogs are rarely interesting.  The best blogs tend to be daring, controversial, and a bit sardonic.  Campaign blogs, by definition, are vanilla.
