In a twist on the “equal time” rule, the Herald-Sun in Durham, NC is offering candidates in local and state elections (six counties) a free blog on the newspaper website. I’m not sure which is more amazing — the offer itself or the fact that only four candidates have taken the paper up on the offer of a “free website” (at this writing). Four others have activated their blogs (ie, their names are linked to a blog page) but they aren’t blogging.
