History will be made in Australian journalism as The Herald Sun’s Leader Community News, a newspaper based in Melbourne, will have a presence in Mildura and surrounding areas with the launch of a daily online news site.

The Mildura News will be a daily site providing local news coverage to people from Buronga to Birdwoodton. Anyone interested in access to the news in Mildura will receive it as part of The Herald Sun’s digital subscription.

Michael DiFabrizio has spent five years covering news in the city and is excited to take a new role with The Mildura News. 

“Mildura is a special place, unlike anywhere else in Victoria, and it has so many stories waiting to be told,” DiFabrizio said. “It is fantastic that News has decided to invest in journalism in this beautiful region, and I look forward to The Mildura News becoming an important part of the community.”

Also, Mildura Mayor Simon Clemence is welcoming the newest media outlet to their market with open arms.

“Regional news can be so easily influenced by the ‘few’ while the ‘many’ go unheard,” Clemence said. “It is important that regional news be timely, relevant, and most importantly, fair and balanced. I look forward to this new medium finding that balance.”

Finally, Herald Sun editor Sam Weir mentioned the importance of expanding their coverage of regional Victoria.

“The overwhelming response to the launch of the Ballarat News has shown the appetite there is in our state’s regional communities for new ways to receive trusted news from dedicated local journalists,” Weir said. “We’re delighted that such a significant city as Mildura is the site for our next digital masthead. I encourage readers to engage with the Mildura News and share their stories of success or highlight concerns they believe need attention.”

A new podcast is coming soon from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

Deadline reports Rachel Maddow Presents: Ultra will premiere two episodes on October 10th, with new episodes being released every Monday. In a teaser of the podcast, Maddow explains the series is “an American story.”

MSNBC described the series as a podcast featured on “sitting members of Congress aiding and abetting a plot to overthrow the government. Insurrectionists criminally charged with plotting to end American democracy for good. Justice Department prosecutors under crushing political pressure. Rachel Maddow Presents: Ultra is the all-but-forgotten true story of good, old-fashioned American extremism getting supercharged by proximity to power. When extremist elected officials get caught plotting against America with the violent ultra right, this is the story of the lengths they will go to… to cover their tracks.”

Under a new contract with NBCUniversal that saw Maddow scale back her nightly MSNBC program to Mondays only, she’s developing new projects like podcasts and documentaries. Alex Wagner now hosts the 9:00 PM ET primetime hour on MSNBC Tuesday to Friday.

Keith Olbermann: American Journalism ‘Re-Invented’ During Trump Presidency

“The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well.”

During his Countdown with Keith Olbermann podcast Friday, the former cable news host slammed a recent opinion from Politico’s John Harris that Americans need more journalists like Maggie Haberman, among others.

Olbermann has been critical of Haberman’s decision to withhold important facts in relation to the former President Donald Trump and save them for her upcoming book rather than report them in The New York Times.

“What Harris does not understand is American ‘journalism’ did re-invent itself,” Olbermann said. “The overwriting principle used to be: get a scoop, get in the paper or on the air as soon as possible because that’s your job, and that’s your only actual value to society as well. It is also — and I speak as somebody who broke a lot of sports news including the Wayne Gretzky trade and Michael Jordan’s first dalliance with a comeback — it is the joy of doing the journalism. You have the story, and nobody else does!”

He continued by saying Harris and Haberman believe the point of American journalism is not to inform the public but rather how much money you can make in the process.

Haberman’s book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” is expected to hit bookshelves on Tuesday, October 4th.

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is joining his brother Chris in the news media world as the politician is launching a political action committee and a podcast. 

“I am starting a political action committee to elect the right people to office,” Cuomo said (h/t CNN). “We do not need more panderers. We need producers. We need people committed to fight for change and who get results.”

The video also featured familiar criticism of social media, which he has often blamed for fueling the backlash the led to his resignation, which effectively halted state lawmakers’ plans to impeach and remove him from office.

“It’s a Twitter mob, but the mob has power and many politicians and press are afraid to challenge it lest the mob turn on them,” Cuomo added. 

Cuomo’s podcast intends to dive into what he believes is the truth and how the platform will differ from what is already out there. 

“This forum will be different. My intention is to speak the full truth, unvarnished, from the inside out, frank and candid,” Cuomo said. 

“As a person who’s been in the room many times for many years and knows these people and knows their games, and as a person who actually did the job.”
