Christian Dunleavey over at Politics.bm has a really great quote when it comes to blogging and how timid our local media is at asking hard questions and getting real answers.
Thaao may be playing a character, but I’m not. I don’t make money from this, I have no corporate boss to tell me what to do, and no advertisers to please. I say what I say because it needs to be said, and our timid media is missing a huge swath of political coverage, may the chips fall where they may.
The issues I write about (accountability, racial tolerance, good governance, modernizing Parliament) are ones that are fundamental to a properly functioning democracy. I make no apologies for that, whether Thaao thinks it’s sincere or not.
