Saint Petersblog's Bromance With the Florida Chamber of Commerce II
Peter Schorsch ran another Florida Chamber of Commerce press release. You can hit the link to find out what the post is about. It isn't my job to do media relations for the Florida Chamber of Commerce. I will say that what Peter published should not even be considered blogging. It is copying and pasting an entire Florida Chamber of Commerce press release. I have openly asked Schorsch why he is allowing his blog to be a media relations office for the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
SCHORSCH: For the record, at this time, I do not have, nor have I had an advertising relationship with the Florida Chamber. They just supply a lot of content of interest to my readers.
Glenn Reynolds usually uses that defense when linking to the posts of racists bloggers. Schorsch has an opinion on just about every major and minor player in Florida politics. Schorsch has no opinion about the lobbying organization responsible for the legislation that Gov. Rick Scott signed. Has the cat really got Schorsch's tongue? This must be a first.
Schorsch is either scared of the Florida Chamber of Commerce or wants to do business with them. The one thing I don't buy is Schorsch not having an opinion. Saint Petersblog is Schorsch's creation. If he wants to copy and paste the Florida Chamber's press releases then he can have at it. However, progressives should be aware that Schorsch will not join the ranks to fight the Florida Chamber.
