Welcome to the No Crap App

We’ve mused a few times on Twitter that it’d be great to have an app that brings together the best of Australian political journalism in one spot.

I dubbed this fictitious iThing the No Crap App in recognition of the Prime Minister’s exhortation that it can’t be that hard for journalists to just not write crap.

Of course such an application will never become reality; the journalists in question are scattered across media organisations and some are hidden behind paywalls.

Nevertheless, this blog will attempt to provide you with the closest thing: a place where the best of Australian political journalism is gathered in one spot.

I aim to post links to these on a weekly basis. Needless to say, excellence is a subjective concept, but I’ll do my best to be objective.

Feedback on the blog, and nominations for each week are most welcome.
