The potential to be very influential

I had the opportunity to ask Matthew d'Ancona, Editor of the Spectator, how influential did he think blogging and podcasting are in politics at the moment, and was he a regular reader or listener of any blogs or podcasts in particular?

Matthew commented, "I think blogging and podcasting are re-shaping politics completely. In the Tory world, the defining moment was last year’s leadership contest when the campaign blogs – official and unofficial – became indispensable. They were used to “seed” stories, and they were often way ahead of the mainstream media. Sites such as your own and Conservativehome.com have the potential to be very influential indeed."

High praise!
