Blog of the Week #1

(c) BBCMartha Kearney was the one that did it. In trying to decide on a ‘blog of the week’, the PM blog was well ahead with its irreverent frippery from Eddie Mair. But Newsnight’s political editor, Martha Kearney, overtook PM in the dying minutes with an entry entitled Deconstructing the two-way.

Martha’s defence of one of journalism’s most controversial tools was honest, amusing and had the added bonus of making Jeremy Paxman look vaguely incompetent (not an easy feat).

The blog is also the home of Paul Mason, who is essentially the Newsnight geek. This illuminating post is a pretty brilliant guide to a story (YouTube + Google = ?) that appears simple on the surface.

  2. To be fair, while Martha’s Newsnight post was brilliant, PM is probably ahead on consistent brilliance.

    Thanks for your comment and keep up the good work!
