I have been privileged to write on James’ blog for a while now, as well as also contributing to a Northern-Irish themed blog named A Tangled Web, where the comments are sometimes vitriolic, as opposed to mannerly and courteous as on OoL’s site. But I always have believed that, if you don’t make your points, and stand up for what you consider to be right, what’s the use?
However, to the promised Announcement.
Besides posting alongside Julia and James, I will also now be a smallpart of a hopefully-larger outfit, which will be known as AltNewsMedia.net. It is being pushed/pulled into the world, and the birthing pains are considerable, but hopefully it will take its place alongside much bigger and more widely-known sources of news, comment and opinion. The first edition shall be spun on January 20th; if all goes well.
The by-line of AltNewsMedia states:-
To lead the resistance against Fake News Media by providing a trusted global platform for the tens of millions of disillusioned people who simply want the latest news and opinion without the filter of bias. We exist to offer people an alternative to the mainstream media narrative and are advocates of right versus wrong, freedom of expression and robust debate.
I hope that you, OoL readers, will lend at least one eye to the newest kid on the block; and hope that you will stay, support, criticise and be an audience for The Alternative.
