The Liberals include blogging to their campaign repertoire

Originally posted Wednesday, 30 August, 2006The Courier Mail reports today (30.08.2006, page 11) that Liberal campaign director Russel Egan eggs on local party members to use blogs to channel the election message in the last two weeks of the campaign.

From the Courier mail: Liberal campaign director for Mansfield and Bonners’s Federal Electorate Council chairman Russell Egan sent the request in an email to local members on Sunday.

The email said: ”With only two weeks until election day, the Liberal(s) must influence public opinion and change the focus from petty issues regarding the people and focus on the Government’s performance.

“Several avenues are: The Courier Mail’s letter to the editor and blogs (which)…are quite active and are dominated by writers who are clearly Labour stooges.
