The briefest of rants over that Business Insider article on Florida political blogging

in Apolitical/Top Headlines by

Yes, of course I read that article from Business Insider about the “fierce battle brewing between political bloggers in a crucial 2016 swing state.

Yes, it stung me that SaintPetersBlog and Sunburn were not included in the piece, but I am going to continue to treat the story as an anomaly. Snubs happen.

That said, I invite you to read or re-read today’s edition of Marc Caputo’s Florida Playbook and our Sunburn.

Not only does Caputo’s Playbook have a refresh of his story on the un-gluing of Alan Grayson, he has an exclusive about a super PAC backing Ron DeSantis and a first look at Steve Schale’s latest data deep dive. This in addition to all of the other nuggets in his concise, witty rundown.

For its part, Sunburn has original reporting on the race for president of the Florida Senate and the first news about a super PAC backing Carlos Lopez-Cantera. This in addition to all of the other nuggets, such as fundraiser listings and lobbying registrations, in our more expanded rundown.

Meanwhile, has a niiiccceee collection of headlines.

Yeah, I’d definitely say that “fierce battle” is between Caputo and Sayfie alone.

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics.
