“I’m for the poor man — all poor men, black and white, they all gotta have a chance. They gotta have a home, a job, and a decent education for their children. ‘Every man a king’ — that’s my slogan.”
Huey P. Long aka “The Kingfish”
I am Matt Bailey, and I’m pleased to take over as publisher of and contributor to The Daily Kingfish and continue this site’s legacy. With a rich history of almost a decade of hard-hitting analysis and advocacy, DK will offer independent news and analysis of Louisiana politics, policy, and civic leadership from a progressive or “center-left” perspective.
Starting today, each article will be signed by its respective author who will bear sole responsibility for its content (see our disclaimer). In other words, I will no longer publish or allow content by anonymous or pseudonymous writers. However, I will, in the name of posterity, leave all previously-published articles in place (subject to the disclaimer that none of the previous content shall be attributed to me). You can read about the history of the Daily Kingfish here.
In addition, and importantly, the content published on DK going forward will be original and independent: original in that we will not wholly repurpose/repost content from other sites and independent in that we will not publish any content the purpose of which is to advance an organization’s or individual’s agenda, without plainly stating such purpose. With today’s media environment being oversaturated with content, I don’t propose to add to the unfortunate practice of rehashing information you may have read elsewhere in the name of “new content.”
One last thing: if you have a passion for progressive, Louisiana politics and a unique voice (not to mention solid grammar skills), I’d love for you to join me as a contributor here. As stated above, I’m only interested in original material. If you’re interested in being a regular or occasional writer, contact me.
Thanks for reading!
