Andrew Sullivan joins Time Warner
As reported in the New York Post, popular blogger Andrew Sullivan will move his blog ("The Daily Dish") to the Time.com site sometime in 2006. According to a Time executive quoted for the piece, Sullivan's blog will become "the first of a blog neighborhood on Time.com, offering readers opinions from all points of view."
For those worried about a sell-out by Andrew Sullivan: Time made clear from the get-go that Sullivan (a Time contributor since 2003) will maintain "full control over the content of his postings." On his blog, Andrew explained the move, reiterating his ability to maintain full editorial control over the blog:
"As for the deal, I can simply assure you that I have retained exactly the same editorial control as I have had since the beginning. This is a blog. I won't be running posts before any editors before they appear. I will continue to write simply what I believe or think, however misguided I may be. I will continue to correct any errors in the full light of day and change my mind if new events demand it or new facts compel it. I will try and air counter-arguments as often as possible. In other words: the essence of the blog won't change. You will still like it for the same reasons or hate it for the same reasons; or, as many of you keep telling me, both."
As one might imagine, the blogosphere has been abuzz over the news. Blog Network Watch has started to piece together commentary about the move from notables such as BuzzMachine and Jason Calacanis.
