TheDailyBlog.co.nz - read the other side of the story
“The blogs dont get to vote in the labour party, so we don't pay much consideration to it” - Andrew Little.
“Blogs,who cares about blogs” - Clayton Cosgrove
"I don't read blogs" they are "nonsense" - David Shearer.
Well they'll be reading the blogs now.
Last week Bryce Edwards interpreted my announcement that I was stepping down from Tumeke as me quitting blogging.
Nothing could be further from the truth. I'm not quitting the NZ Blogosphere, I'm intending to change it.
TheDailyBlog.co.nz will bring together 30 of the best left-wing bloggers and progressive opinion shapers in NZ all onto one site to critique the news, the media, and politics to provide the other side of the story.
I look forward to reading Matt McCarten, Chris Flatt and Wayne Butson's blogs as they gauge the temperature of industrial relations during our current economic malaise through the lens of their unions.
Launching March 1st TheDailyBlog.co.nz will feature: Chris Trotter, Selwyn Manning, Professor Jane Kelsey, Keith Locke, Sue Bradford, John Minto, David Slack, Morgan Godfery, Gareth Renowden, Coley Tangerina, Phoebe Fletcher, Dr Wayne Hope, Queen of Thorns, Burnt out Teacher, Steve Grey, Aaron Hawkins, Marama Davidson, Tim Selwyn, James Ritchie, Efeso Collins, Robert Winter, Lynn Prentice, Frank MacsKasy, Matt McCarten, Wayne Butson, Chris Flatt, Allan Alach, TheDailyBlog Reposts and The Liberal Agenda.
We have 270 000 children in poverty, a real unemployment rate in the double figures and the highest level of inequality recorded. If Seven Sharp is the new bench mark for critical public media, then it's up to the blogs to fill the gap.
