Welcome to Under the Hood, our OffTheBus ground report blog. Here you’ll find a 24-7 round-up of on-the-ground intelligence and dispatches from inside and around the presidential campaign provided by our Special Ops members. Our focus is source and raw material. This is a log more than a blog, like a text version of radar. Of course, we’ll break news if we’ve got it, but our basic goal is to provide a more nuanced and realistic version of the presidential campaign from the ground up. That’s where distributed journalism comes in. And our thousands of members around the country. Intrigued? You can join us. Need more info first? Here’s recent coverage in the NYTimes.
