Yesterday the Texas Tribune tried to one up Paul Burka’s infamous 10 Best and Worst Legislators List with their own version of it, “Inside Intelligence: The Best and Worst Were…”
Texas Tribune’s attempt to one up Burka appears to have hit a nerve, Burka posted on his blog the following statement.
The main comment I would make about the Texas Tribune‘s Insiders’ list is that it doesn’t have any criteria. And I realize that’s not its purpose. This is really more like a vote for eighth grade president. The only criteria is who do we like and who don’t we like?
This was a pretty bold move by Texas Tribune considering that Texas Monthly teamed up with the Texas Tribune to join their series of “Trib Live” conversations to discuss Burka’s 10 Best and Worst Legislators list on Thursday morning follow the official release of the list Wedensday morning.
Love Burka and his list, or hate him and his list, the list will be for better or worse the talk of the capitol for the next week. Burka will unveil his 10 Best and Worst Legislators list live on Texas Monthly’s twitter account, @texasmonthly,tomorrow, Wednesday, starting at 11:30 AM. Don’t forget to follow the twitter hashtag #tmbestworst to join the conversation.
