The Telegraph-Journal's Joshua Errett wrote a great story that ran in today's TJ about another New Brunswick blog called "The Trenchcoat" which is an anonymous blog that allows no comments and announces its sole purpose is to attack the Shawn Graham Liberals. As far as I know, this is the first story ever written in the mainstream press primarily focussed on New Brunswick blogs. Kudos to these guys.
However, due to an editing error, my website is listed as the address for "The Trenchcoat". Before I even had a chance to read the article, I had an email from Mr. Errett apologizing for this error, which is very classy. As I explained to him, I don't mind getting all of the hits which will likely ensue as a result, especially whereas I was informed I'd get plugged again tomorrow when they run a correction.
Spinks and I are now celebs as we were both quoted along side Warren Kinsella in the article.
Here is an excerpt including my quotes:
NB Politico, another established-but-anonymous New Brunswick blogger, also dismisses the anonymous site as fiercely partisan.
"Being anonymous, from the outset, does decrease one's credibility, but I think that handicap is easy erased if the blogger posts credible and thoughtful items," he says.
"(The Trenchcoat blog) seems to be someone that has a combination of a lot of free time, political knowledge and a grudge against the Liberals."
