Bloggers win seats on press row for Libby trial

The Washington Post breaks the news about how Media Bloggers Association has gained access to the upcoming spectacle:

When the trial of Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice opens next week, scores of journalists are expected to throng the federal courtroom in Washington, far too many for the 100 seats set aside for the media. But for the first time in a federal court, two of these seats will be reserved for bloggers. After two years of negotiations with judicial officials across the country, the Media Bloggers Association... has won credentials to rotate among its members.

The article throws up many interesting facts on the state of blogging, access, libel etc. and is well worth reading in full. More on how Robert Cox, MBA's president worked to bring it about here. I'll be looking forward to reading the live blogging from the event...
