The premier equalizer is the speed-of-light internet with blogs, twitters and facebook posts that creep every day past the gatekeepers of the news. Videos of what politicians actually said today and in the past are accessible. Blogging Tories is one tool that weaponizes conservative citizens to be heard widely despite having no war chest filled with lucre.
|The late journalist, Liebling, came up with|
the freedom of the press quote.
Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one" is the old truth. The new truth is that any citizen with a will to be heard can publish freely and cheaply. The market price of political influence is dropping as competition is added.
Cheers for Blogging Tories and behind the scenes to Stephen Taylor and Craig Smith.
