I know that re-publishing Robert Fisk is a sacred and serious calling. Examining weighty matters of State is also fun, and more importantly you can hang out with the cool kids from the big papers and regurgitate their ideas when you don’t have any of your own.
But as the only people who read the Canberra Times have at least an interest in Canberra, is it asking too much to cover a bit of local news on your website? We’re flattered here at RiotACT that you think we’re covering local news so well that we don’t need your help. But really, it’d be nice to have some company for those days when we don’t have any ideas of our own too.
I mean if the Yass Tribune can find some local news to put online you’d think there’d be something in Canberra worthy of your consideration wouldn’t you?
That is all.
