Thumbnail image for br1.jpg
Miami New Times cover story is going to be a doozy as we dive into the lives of Miami's most hated bloggers -- by the local political establishment, that is. These digital gadflies are filling the civic investigative void created by the cuts at The Miami Herald and other local media outlets. You'll find out that some of them have had a few run-ins with the law, while others are richer than some of the very politicians and public officials they harass. Tomorrow, you can read our full feature on Miami's top ten political bloggers.

But first, we wanted to recognize ten other blogs that deserve honorable mention for the public service they provide. While they don't aggressively confront subjects like our top ten picks, these bloggers still make time to criticize boneheaded decisions by local government and shine a light on the ugly side of political candidates.
