New Blog Debuts — OC Daily


Matt Cunningham, founder of OC Blog and current publisher of AnaheimBlog, has launched a new Orange County political blog called OC Daily (

Here’s a summary of the blog from their daily email blast:

Welcome to OC Daily, the source for Orange County political news and commentary. From San Juan Capistrano to La Habra and everything in-between, our roster of expert veteran politicos will keep you up-to-date on campaigns, candidates and local government. We’ll shine a light on the track records of politicians and what our local governments are doing. Whether it concerns tax hikes, charter schools, property rights, or the federal and state government dictating our choices here at home; OC Daily reports on the interests and players shaping and re-shaping Orange County’s political landscape.

There’s a hat tip map of Orange County that harkens to the days of OC Blog before it became Red County, but the outline is now in blue (wishful thinking on my part).  The initial posts on OC Daily are valuable reviews of candidate mailers leading up to the primary on June 7.

    Figures Dan would give Matty—a guy whose previous OC blog life ended in disgrace after defending a pedophile protector and outing sex-abuse victims in the process—a big ol’ smooch. Hey, Matty: will OC Daily use a photo of one of Izzy Ocampo’s murder victims to slam the Kraemer homeless shelter?

    Or maybe they’ll write such riveting material about who invented Taco Salad…

    Or you could admit your own publication has had its own problems with an inadvertent disclosure. From OC Weekly:

    UPDATE, APRIL 20, 3:44 P.M.: Editor’s note: In the original draft of this story, we had a screengrab of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department online homepage, with a caption identifying it as such. That homepage image included basic information and links about the department but also included the picture of a deputy. In no way did the Weekly mean to infer that the deputy pictured was the deputy accused of rape in the lawsuit mentioned in the story, and the story made no mention of the screengrab accompanying it. We took down the original screengrab within minutes of its publication and replaced it with the current image above. A sheriff’s spokesman contacted us about the original image shortly after we had removed it, and thanked us for replacing it. The Weekly regrets any confusion that may have arisen as a result of the original screengrab.
