Truepolitik's First Birthday

Truepolitik is 1 year old, today!! The first post, on 15-July-2006 oulined our mission. It is reproduced below:

Our Mission is to
analyse selected events covering:
* Australian National politics
* NSW Politics

The reason for doing this is because too many voters and

media outlets accept politicians' statements at face value, along with the
sometimes token analysis by tabloid media. Indeed, in recent times, commercial
television "current affairs" in Australia has become nothing more than tabloid TV.

* publish other selected thoughts about Australian current affairs.

During this first year, we have:
  • posted 136 times

  • added a counter to the site in July 2007

  • provided independent, non-party-political comment and analysis on Australian Federal and NSW politics and current affairs

  • begun releases to Australian media outlets

  • Written open letters to politicians, and sent them copies.

We also have a new, fresh look from today. We hope you like it.

So, we will have our cake, and eat it, too!
