One-man news media websites:
a place in cyberspace? By Greg Tingle
should doubt the benefits of web publishing, however
there are some flaws the least of which is
the way articles and contributions are edited, and

website in Australia, which is for the most part is
controlled by one individual, and no, its not my own
website that I am referring to.
individual who set-up and maintains the site I am

known, the punter will be able to choose their news,
and what they wish to believe and what they dont,
and make their opinion heard at the same time
