Westword’s Best Of Delivers Good News
And then they’ve got li’l ol’ us: “Best Offspring of a National Blog.”
When David Bennahum, the president and CEO of the Center for Independent Media, a progressive organization based in Washington, D.C., decided to create his first state-based spinoff, he looked to Colorado. His creation went live last year, quickly establishing itself as a lively and journalistically credible blog capable of breaking news about, for instance, irregularities in failed gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez’s campaign. Reporters at mainstream outlets haven’t always given Colorado Confidential credit when they’ve followed the site’s lead, but they’re definitely reading — and that’s what matters most.
Westword‘s annual Best of Denver hit the street with its usual fat thud this week – 288 pages worth of celebration of all things great about the Queen City of the Plains and beyond. Good eats, the best arts and entertainment, sports and recreation, services and, of course, people and places.
And, a special hats off to Colorado Confidential’s own Andrew Oh-Willeke: Renaissance man, hard-nosed gadfly, bookish legal theorist, flighty postmodern philosopher, romantic poet – AKA Wash Park Prophet.
Thanks for the shout-out, Westword!
