When blogging is awesome

I don't know the background to this story nor do I know the journalists in question but I stumbled across it in one of my random google/vodka moments.
I have heard of Branston because I have been in journalism long enough to know the players.
But this blog is awesome and truly shows the power of the independent voice.
It's all in the comments and it REALLY does show why newspapers are powers for both good and evil.
People in this blog I salute you.

    Have to admit to being astonished by the way inquests are reported in Beds - the coroner tells the filth, the filth tell their press officers (if they feel like it) and their press officers tell the journos (if they feel like it)

    What's up with the journos making a a weekly call to the coroners clerk to find out what's coming up that week? Thats what we do.
    Sloppy workmanship that.
    Mind you having spoken to a few Beds journos Its quite clear none of them last more than 18 months in the job before they sod off to work in the smoke or go into PR....
