The main stream media is attempting to turn the exposure of Len Brown’s infidelity into a left-right political conspiracy.
One angle it hasn’t looked at is it was a blog which broke the news.
Stephen Cook, a former Herald journalist broke the story on Whaleoil.
It’s not the first time a blog has been first with a story but it is, at least in New Zealand I think, the first time for such a big story.
Is that significant?
I don’t think it signals less importance for the old media but it does point to more significance for the new.
