User:Lord Matt/Thanet Star
|Associate editor||I. Adams|
Thanet Star is a crowd funded weblog edited and written a number of people from Thanet. It's subject matter focuses primarily on the politics of Thanet and the surrounding area particularly grassroots campaigns centered on Thanet District Council policy.
In 2008 Justin Williams an Assistant Editor at the Telegraph Media Group indicated the blog in a short list of the last few places with true journalism in Thanet. Thanet Star was listed on Williams "Map of the UK’s independent local news sites" in 2009.
The blog attempts to enact the Bloggers Code of Conduct originally proposed by Tim O'Reilly in the year the blog was founded. This is mostly due due to the perception of hostility in Thanet blogging.
