Phillip Matthews has written an article for the Dominion Post on the future of left wing blogging.
Unsurprisingly, Matthews’ insinuates that it was the Left wing blogs who were to blame for the left wing loss. It wasn’t 6 years of mainstream media bias towards Key and their tainted involvement to empower Slater, oh no, it was all us left wing bloggers who are to blame.
It seems convenient for a member of the very industry that has given the right the power to weave their Dirty Politics to suggest that it’s the Left wing blogs fault for the Left’s loss at the ballot box.
With Slater about to launch next year a new weaponised news media ‘Freed.co.nz’ complete with a drone operator, he will bend and push the boundaries of attack blogs into a whole new realm of horror. How will the left blogosphere compete with a $600 000 right wing attack blog is yet to be seen.
