I recommend podcasts - starting with the ABC and Sky News - I ran a 
search this weekend infact and found a mountain of quality Australian 
podcasts, even some from MIS Australia for the IT industry - brilliant.

Not a 'blog' format although some podcasts are just spoken blogs - so 
you can get on with other things while you listen.

Can not recommend podcasts highly enough - I don't bother watching the 
news or even TV any more - podcasts cover everything I need and want to 
know - within Australia and elsewhere.
