Tag A Lobbyist

First encountering it a week ago, I’m still impressed by NPR’s idea to turn the camera on the lobbyists packing the health care hearings rather than on the hearings themselves.

On top of that, NPR’s idea (a lá Facebook) was to have readers examine the photos, then tag the various lobbyists in each photo. …Unfortunately, readers haven’t exactly flocked to the task. In the image above, only three people have been identified so far.

Still, doing its bit to breakdown the abstraction of “K” Street, I hope this exercise might actually get somewhere.
