Nominees from yesterday are:

Patrick Gower: Inventory2 says;

Sorry WO, but it has to be Pedro Gower, if only for all the shit he created with the Shearer/Cunliffe debacle.

Rachel Smalley: Pete George says;

While probably not strictly speaking a political journalist I think Rachel Smalley deserves a mention as an up and comer. She inteligently eases information out of interviewees.

Larry Williams: Many commenters picked Larry but the best comment was from Inventory2 again;

?Larry Williams comes second for the way that he always baits Barry “Pinko” Soper; gold!

Fran O’Sullivan: Not strictly a political journalist but does provide good commentary on political matters.

Felix Marwick: Second fiddle to Helen’s handbag carrier, Barry Soper, but Pete?George?notes;

And less visible but a reliable and reasonable journo to follow on Twitter is Felix Marwick from Newstalk ZB.

NB: Although many loyal readers nominated me for this award I can hardly put myself in a poll on my own blog. I thank you all though for the nomination and comments.
