In what may be a temporary move, conservative blogger and newspaper columnist JESSICA McBRIDE has closed off public access to her blogs -- McBride's Media Matters and Election Watch Wisconsin. Visitors are now greeted with a screen asking for a password to read the sites. "I have restricted access to only the blog author -- myself. It's not a situation where some can read it and others can't," McBride explained in an e-mail to WisPolitics. McBride said she doesn't have the time to blog right now, but wanted to leave herself the option of re-opening the blogs later: "I restricted access because I might blog again in the future when I get more time, and I didn't want to delete the blogs."And what would have been wrong with just leaving them up? Afraid people would keep commenting?
