There must be good journalism going on in New Zealand suggest Russell Brown and Danyl at Dim Post, but it’s too often buried under an avalanche of clickbait “pillaged from social media and the kind of trivia your stupid friend insists on sharing in their Facebook feed.”
Danyl suggests we quality-news mavens need to fight back with a decent NZ news aggregator to dig out the quality stuff, just like in the old days:
What I could really use is an aggregator. Way back in the day Kiwiblog functioned as a political news aggregator, linking and excerpting pretty much every political story with DPF writing ‘An excellent Herald editorial’ at the top or ‘Indeed’ at the bottom of them. If I had world enough and time I’d set up a New Zealand journalism aggregator, and call it ‘Indeed’ in honour of those salad days. But I don’t. I’d be very grateful if someone else did though.
