Election coverage on the Web

Gosh this blogging thing is getting popular isn't it? Hang on... wake up Toto, I don't think we're in 2001 anymore...

Damn mutt. Anyway, since the 2005 UK election's finally been called, it makes sense to look at what my favourite media organisations are making of it. And they're all blogging. Thanks to propaganda.org.uk for pointing out some of the mistakes the BBC is making showcasing its blog, and for highlighting the Today programme's call for 3 listeners to blog their thoughts over the coming month. Currybet.net has a good analysis, including mentions of what the Guardian and Channel 4 are up to. And there's hope from Tom Steinberg over at voxpolitics that  politicians might finally use the internet to get a bit off message. I'm not convinced, and frankly, I find this particular show of net-empoweredness just a wee bit scary. As for openDemocracy, we've got Dominic on the case. Hey, he might even be joining us here in oD Today if we ask him really nicely.

Thanks, Robin!

I've just had a look - great to see you're plugging notapathetic - I love the Monacco Tax evader's reason for not voting...

And yes, that picture of Blair on the back of a van is truly, truly scary.

Consdier yourself RSS'ed...
