Washington Post names MarylandReporter.com one of “best state-based political blogs”

The Fix, the lead political blog at The Washington Post, has named MarylandReporter.com as one of “best state-based political blogs” in the nation, according to a poll of its readers. This year, MarylandReporter.com shares honors with Red Maryland.

The list includes websites from all 50 states.

Chris Cillizza, who writes the Fix, said, “The best political blogs list is entirely driven by Fix readers and commenters.”

“We intend to serve as a gateway for interested political junkies to pick and choose your favorites,” Cillizza said. The Post does not endorse any of the partisan views expressed by the blogs.

Mark Newgent of Red Maryland said he was not aware of the Fix’s informal survey that started July 7, nor was MarylandReporter.com.

The Post last did its list of best political blogs in 2009, before MarylandReporter.com began. The Post named five websites in Maryland that year, but only Red Maryland returns this year.

    Congratulations, although declared by the Washington Post may give it a “certain” color.  I enjoy your balanced reporting and encourage you to continue bipartisan reports, however difficult that may be in Maryland’s political arena.
