Bloggers, of course!
Commenter harry wrote a while back, in answer to my question, “To what degree do blogs represent a source of news or commentary on politics for you?”:
Great source of useful links to news. Good for breaking news but often this is surrounded by a lot of spin. Probably the best commentary because blogs comment on the media commentators as well as the issues.
On his last point, yeah, that’s one of the greatest contributions of the blogosphere. Chris Sheil had a wonderful feature called the “Shorter Hendo”, which Rob Corr and I have intermittently kept alive. I’ve given out some kudos to Julia Baird and we all vigorously debated Miranda Devine.
Now, Immanuel Rant seems to have accepted the mission of the Miranda watch. I really like his latest entry on the Devine Ms M’s thoughts on sex, secularism, Kinsey and Christmas. I think everyone should go and read it.
