Hot on the heels of No Minister on Tuesday reporting how the (UK) Independent newspaper proved it wasn't by passing off government propoganda as its own work, we now turn over to a fresh case of lefty media manipulation.
Hilary Clinton has been exposed as a funder of left wing blogs in a scandal branded as 'bloggergate.'
The rorting of the New Media, it seems has gone on largely unnoticed for several years, until a video of Clinton posted this month on You Tube exposed the affair for all to see.
Such abuses of corporate funding may even be against the law, not that lawbreaking ever bothered the Clintons when they were in the White House.
It all makes us wonder about the New Zealand blogosphere.
There has been some discussion on right-wing blogs about whether left-wing 'trolls' are deliberately setting out to damage David Farrar's highly successful Kiwiblog, by them hijacking debates. Are they doing it independently, or acting on orders from Liarbour command?
And, like in America, might we have money from Trades Unions or wherever, being paid direct to employ Pro-Liarbour bloggers here? Might such a method overcome Liarbour's planned Electoral Finance Bill? Who would know if someone was getting paid or not?
For myself and the others I know, blogging is , dare I use the word, a labour of love.
