Having just put down the NYT, I’ve started my own newspaper: Underdog News. Mainly this is a way of relaying all the good stuff that comes my way via blogs and twitter. These days that is of such a volume that I can’t keep up, blogging-wise.
The aim is to come up with a site that relays stories that give an alternative slant to the narrative provided by our intrepid MSM. Items that don’t make it to the mainstream, hence ‘Underdog News’. Not all of it is underdog, though. But the mix of ‘hard’ MSM news and explanation and interpretation provided by others will hopefully make for a interesting and informative mix. This is a bit of an experiment. I hope it will work out as I intend it to.
It is a bit of a mixed-up thing, with items in EN and NL, with the occasional D or F item thrown in. In the coming days and weeks I’ll probably play around with the settings to get it optimized.
