Labour leader David Cunliffe tried to score a point over John Key yesterday by saying he rarely talks to bloggers, but that seems a stretch.
One of his closest advisers (priming him for the televised debates) is Polity blogger Rob Salmond.
Greg Presland, a lawyer friend involved in setting up his leadership fund trust, blogs as MickeySavage at The Standard.
Labour MPs and candidates often write for TheDailyBlog, and Cunliffe gave an early interview to Martin ”Bomber” Bradbury.
Plus at least three staff hand picked by David Cunliffe to write for him are (presumably) former bloggers at The Standard.
