CBC political journalist/parliamentary blogger Kady O’Malley (or author0b70f as she’s identified on CBC.ca) has changed the way federal politics is reported. Exploiting the features of social media technologies including Twitter, Cover It Live and her blog, Kady (with her Blackberry and nimble thumbs) has struck a balance in a way that informs and engages readers — professional with a dash of human. Even over the summer she regularly attracts anywhere between 12 and 90 comments per post.
Kady led an engaging Q&A on journalism, politics and digital media at PAB2010. This video features excerpts of of her session.
