Hey, lookie, I got an e-mail from Dallas Morning News City Hall reporter Dave Levinthal! Alas, nothing too sexy -- just a note that "today, The Dallas Morning News launched a blog focused on Dallas City Hall and area political issues." And it's blessed with the catchiest of monikers: Dallas City Hall Blog. But perhaps it's all them Young Street blogs that account for The Dallas Morning News' increase in online hits; says Editor & Publisher it's up 96 percent since the same period last year. Only ... hey, hey, what's that name right above The News? The one with the "impressive" 139 percent jump in unique audience traffic from March '07 to March '08? Say, that's our parent company! --Robert Wilonsky
