The Morning After

For the first time in a couple of years, I read the paper version of the Herald during a leisurely breakfast - well the first three sections that is, of the Herald, not the breakfast. Schmorgers at the flash pub, see?

I must say how much I enjoyed reading the op-ed pieces. Thoroughly enjoyed both the John Armstrong analysis of National's strategy and chances and Sandra Paterson's timely expose of the shameless way jealous and mediocre hacks have conspired with their political masters to discredit Ian Wishart. Our second special commendation for astute observation goes to Sandra with a Force 8 bullshit rating to the hacks.

What was of particular interest was to see that the Herald is taking weblogs seriously, with a roundup of blog comment from DPF, NZP, Silent Running, Peter Metcalf and, who was the other one? Oh yes, the Leftie Windbag with all the industry awards. (Reminded me of a life insurance salesman I once visited, who had wall to wall awards for excellence, customer satisfaction devotion to duty and blah blah. Three years later he was in jail for fraud.)

UPDATE by AL @ 3:26PM: Added links, changed name to 'John Armstrong'...

Reid, thanks for the pat on the back regarding the Media Bias Barometer. I hope you realise it will only wrok and become a truly powerful tool if you and others identify and sent in examples of bias. Get on with it. Don't delay.
