At first I would say that times.debian.net/news.debian.net would and
should be the resource to use for news about the project that don't
classify as press releases - for whatever reason. If the press team
should author articles on blog.d.o what would make these articles
different from our press releases?
Traditionally, Debian makes a lot of use of mailing lists. Aside of
the regular press channels debian-news and debian-announce we have
d-d-a (and d-i-a) where all developers can post information on. Both
resources are well used.
Instead of trying to establish just another Debian service I would be
more happy to strengthen one of the currently under-recognised
services such as news.debian.net or times.debian.net
