A week is a long time in politics. Ten years is an eternity in blogging. And it certainly feels like it’s been a long time since Zelo Street was launched exactly ten years ago.
Back then, the blog didn’t have much of a focus; that came when Nick Davies began to prise open the can of worms that was the Phone Hacking scandal.
The focus sharpened during the years of austerity, as our free and fearless press showed their appetite for anything but reporting facts. It sharpened yet further with the rise of the far right - also fuelled by a press that remains utterly unaccountable to anyone but itself.
So is blogging about to end, after ten years? You jest.
