Slugger: getting the wider story out…

I’m grateful to reader Declan who notes that this week’s edition of the Press Gazette there’s a piece by Neil McIntosh (erstwhile technology journalist at the Guardian and one of their most ‘clueful‘ bloggers) has featured Slugger alongside some very prestigious US and UK bloggers, including: Buzz Machine; Samizdata; Order, Order; and The Sharpner.Of Slugger he says:

The best current affairs blogs tend to present views you don’t hear in the mainstream, or shed light on areas of the news that don’t get regular high-profile coverage. It’s not unil you read something like Mick Fealty’s Slugger O’Toole blog that you realise there’s much, much more going on in Northern Ireland that finds its way into the London media. This is the place to go for the nitty-gritty.”

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
