A Media Revolution

Tonight saw a step change in media coverage of the election.

I refer to Whaleoil's coverage of the candidate meeting at Helensville.

Here was a blow by blow description of the event, outside and inside. 

I can't recall any such coverage having occurred before.  Excellent good quality pictures; first class factual commentary; noc politcally biased commentary, just a factual account of the event as t unfolded.

In spite of the pre-event hoohaa, there appeared to be no disruption and and the whole show show turned out to be pretty tame.

It seems the Herald's and other journos were a bet late getting there and didn't get a look in.

Well done Pete and the rest of the highly trained and skilled Whaleoil team.

Yep, the coverage was great!

I enjoyed the live updates on who was speaking and what they were saying.
Really good stuff.
