Message Control, Boston Style

Vainly, Carter Eskew tried to stop Ryan Lizza from contributing to the swamp of political process stories coming out of the Boston convention.

"There's some silliness about all the reporting about the policing of the message," says Carter Eskew, one of the Democratic Party's most respected media gurus. "There's nothing new about that. That's what a convention is."

Nevertheless, Lizza filed on the Democratic Party's efforts at message control last week.
