About MD

Media Darlings began as a group blog for up-and-coming journalists but is now basically a soapbox for me, Rory MacKinnon. I’m a political reporter from New Zealand now based in the UK with the Morning Star.

I’ve written for Scoop, Werewolf, The New Zealand Education ReviewThe Wairarapa Times-Age, the New Zealand Press Association and a bunch of student magazines. I’ve also appeared as a media commentator on Radio New Zealand’s MediaWatch, Radio Active’s Scoop Report and 95bfm’s Counterclockwise. Death threats and/or offers of employment accepted here.

Anyway, you can more or less stop reading now unless you want the boring legal bits.

    Congratulations on the significance and valuable contribution you made on MEDIAWATCH 23/5/10. Good raduio. Thank you.

    There has always been a gap between big media and the more lively student journalists and freelance writers. I’ve been encouraging our graduates (and students) to make contributions also.

    I’ll advise them of MEDIADARLINGS.NET so expect some comments and contributions.
