Ciutadans and blogs

For a modernising party, Ciutadans have got off to a terrible start in their dealings with the new media, including some quite startling and prolonged incompetence in dealing with the guys at Nihil Obstat and Barcepundit. Now it seems that Ernesto Hernández Busto has been told by those on high to turn off Ciutadans en la prensa, the press blog he was running on their behalf without consultation and without their having anything to take its place. Pissing on the faithful is old-style politics, my dears.
