A quick plug for my new column for those nice people at Journalism.co.uk.
First up, an assessment of the old and new media coverage of MPs’ expenses a week on from the heavily redacted Parliamentary disclosure.
In essence I argue that these occasionally bitchy arguments between proponents of ‘proper’ journalism and those who champion collaborative journalism are largely bogus:
Nothing demonstrates the laziness of the ‘winners and losers’ legend more than the domestic news story of the year – MPs’ expenses. Here we have seen the best of old and new media, one feeding off the other.
Anyway, you can read it for yourselves here.
This should turn into a regular gig, a weekly look at where media and technology meet. Next week? Who knows. Have a good weekend.
