TOP SCOOPS

Hard News Is Here!

- GOOD DAY MEDIAPHILES ... bugger the politics. Bugger the news. There's a game of rugby on. A real one, evoking traditions that were alive before Rupert Murdoch was born. See... HARD NEWS 08/06/01 - Mmmmm ... Meat! [1]

Police Reject Sludge’s Steven Wallace “Conspiracy of Silence” Claim

- An article published in Scoop, under the byline “Sludge”, purported to be “the real story behind the shooting of Wellington student Steven Wallace”. Unfortunately the story had little or no basis of fact to provide any further informed debate on what was a tragic event. See... Sludge Feedback: Police Re: Steven Wallace [1] . See also... Shoot; Don't Shoot - 60 Mins On Steven Wallace [2] for publicity on a documentary on the Steven Wallace shoorting screening on TV1 on Sunday.

Sludge Feedback: Re: Catch 22 For Hartner Creditors

- Your piece in today's "just politics" reminded me of the Security Commission's 1988 report to Geoffrey Palmer on my 1988 report on alleged widespread property frauds which led to the sudden collapse of the RSL and Landbase groups of companies. See... Sludge Feedback: Shades Of RSL In Hartner Decision [1] and Sludge Report #82 - Catch 22 For Hartner Creditors [2]

Conservation Minister Risks A PC Mudslide

- Conservation Minister Sandra Lee is putting lives at risk in the name of political correctness by not proceeding with minor earthworks on the crater lake of Mr Ruapehu to prevent a recurrence of the lethal lahar that caused the Tangiwai disaster, National Conservation spokesperson Nick Smith said today. See... Political correctness risks repeat of Tangiwai [1] and Smith "Recklessly Alarmist" Says Lee [2]

GLW Feature: Israel The Obstacle

- RAMALLAH — The May 15 commemorations here of Al Nakba (the Catastrophe), the anniversary of the 1948 establishment of the State of Israel, held special significance for Palestinians — for not since 1948 itself have the Palestinian people faced such a severe Israeli assault as they have in the last eight months. See... GLW Feature: Israel The Obstacle To Peace [1]

Supercomputer Weather: 10 Chilly Days

- According to the NOAA supercomputer, the big chill the country has been experiencing for the last couple of weeks is not scheduled to go anywhere in a hurry. See... Supercomputer Weather: 10 Day Big Chill Forecast [1]

Diesel: Shell Insults Aucklanders’ Intelligence

- ARC Chairman Phil Warren says Shell New Zealand’s arguments against the introduction of cleaner diesel in Auckland are hollow and an insult to the intelligence of the region’s people. See... Shell’s Diesel Arguments Ring Hollow [1] MORE: - BP - BP Pushes For Cleaner Diesel For Auckland [2] - Greens - Need Gov't Regulations To Decrease Diesel Sulpur [3] - Shell - Shell Questions ARC’s Diesel Sensibilities [4]

Lashlie’s ‘Angelic Boy’ Had Real Life Doppelganger

- The expulsion of an angelic five-year old boy just weeks before SES manager Celia Lashlie was dismissed from her position for speaking out about a fictitious five-year old child was kept secret while education officials searched for a new school prepared to take the Palmerston North boy deemed a danger to staff and students. See... Children With Special Needs [1] . See also… Kimberley Closing? [2] and Specialist Care Essential [3]

Scoop World: George W. Bush – Friend Of Nimbus Clouds

– It appears Scoop columnist C.D. Sludge is not the only one noticing the propensity of the new President of the US to be rained upon. See… Washington Post: Weather Doesn't Rain on Bush's Parade for a report on how G.W. Bush’s tax cut bill signing celebrations had to be scaled back by yet another downpour.


Katya Rivas: Crusade Of Atonement And Penance

- My daughter, a great campaign should be drawn up, a Crusade of atonement and penance. This Crusade will be intense and constant, strong and real, and truthful and convincing. The world must prepare itself to resist the attacks of the Beast. The great tribulation is prepared and the world will cry tears of blood. See... Katya Rivas: The Great Tribulation Is Prepared [1]

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren. In fact, that solidarity is mutual. More>>
