I am increasingly impressed with The Spinoff’s more in-depth coverage of politics at a local level than the mainstream media (TV or newspaper). Even if you don’t always agree with the conclusions of their articles, you certainly have a lot of material to think about – rather than repeating what other people have tweeted (I’m looking at you, TVNZ).

- The four John Keys you meet when he governs your country | The Spinoff (December 16, 2016)
