BlogHer vs. NY Times

Following up on this post, it looks like the political director of the BlogHer conference was a little more than peeved at the NY Times writing about the organization in the “Fashion & Style” section:

Apparently I can push political agendas, but I’ll always be seen as an Oprah-watching, bon-bon eating, Katie Couric-esque, shoe-shopping, GIRL.
Even the New York Times will write about how powerful I am, and how I’m not getting my props — yet they will publish the article in the ‘Fashion and Style’ section.
Sure they will write about about heart attacks and blogging and place it in “Technology.” But WOMEN bloggers? Oh, they belong next to “It’s Botox for You, Dear Bridesmaids” and “The BreakUps That Got Under My Skin.”
Perhaps, with all the talk of us being “…a corporate-sponsored Oprah-inflected version of a ’60s consciousness-raising group” they missed the part about 36 million of us taking over as power-users of the web while raising our children and supporting our families.
