Question MarkAs part of the online journalism course at Cardiff I have to write an online feature about journalism, citizen media, futurology, design or ‘online life’, whatever that may be.

I also have to write a post – yes, this one! – explaining what I’m going to do. The trouble is… I’ve already done it. So please carry on reading but ignore the fact that everything is written in the future tense.

I’m planning to visit 18 Doughty Street, the online political TV station run by Iain Dale and a number of other right-wing bloggers. I’m interested in how this original venture might affect political broadcasting – and politics itself – in the future.

I’ll interview some of the faces behind the channel and observe what they do before writing a witty and informative piece about the station. I’ll add some photos and maybe even get an interview with Iain Dale and Donal Blaney where I might ask them all about their venture and put across some searching questions. If I’m really lucky I might even be able to interview the Shadow Home Secretary David Davis and perhaps include some photos of him too. I bet you can’t wait.

Which is a shame, because I’ve not written it yet.

    At least you’ve got good precedent for interviewing Davis!

  2. Three times now. It’s getting a little ridiculous. Especially as he never remembers me from the previous occasion.
