Unique, independent and necessary in NZ media is New Zealand's leading news resource for news-makers and the people that influence the news (as opposed to a news site for "news consumers").

It brings together the information that is creating the news as it is released to the media, and is therefore a hub of intelligence for the professionals (not just media) that shape what we read. presents all the information driving the news of the day in the form it is delivered to media creating a "no spin" media environment and one that provides the full context of what is "reported" as news later in the day.

Its readership has a circle of influence far greater than the number of reported readers, which averages more than 450 000 a month, and it is a key part of the New Zealand media landscape. is accredited to the New Zealand Parliament Press Gallery and fed by a multitude of Business, Non-Government-Organisation, Regional Government and Public Relations communication professionals.

We are the leading independent news publication in New Zealand and value our independence strongly. is respected widely in political, business and academic circles for the depth of its content and the quality of its reporting — often giving voice to perspectives not being addressed through “traditional media” sources.

Our readership are high-value, professionals with a social and environmental conscience, and also a discerning general readership seeking an alternative to other major news media.

Established in 1999, Scoop is ranked 3rd by Nielsen Net//Ratings in their News Category and was finally recognised in the Qantas Media Awards as a finalist for "Best News Site" in 2007!.
