TOP SCOOPS


Sludge Report: Where's The Real News?

- As Foreign Minister Phil Goff sounds off about the handing over of European war criminal Slobodan Milosevic on the TV news tonight, please spare a thought for a news event of considerable more import, far closer to home.

Hard News Is Here

- GOOD DAY MEDIAPHILES ... Most of the court cases we televise just aren't that interesting as news television. Seriously, when was the last time you saw an Employment Court case on TV? But this one, with spin doctors shadowing both sides and the plaintiff giving a virtuoso performance as herself, is almost constructed for broadcast. See... HARD NEWS 29/7/01 - The Ultimate Fashion Victim [1]

Dangly Earrings: The Fashion Statement With A Social Message

- The following email, urging women to get their Christine Rankin styled glad rags on in support of women workers, is doing the rounds across the country. Meanwhile, broadcasters Robert Rakete and James Coleman both donned Rankinesque dangly earings on TV3’s The Panel last night, and Alliance MP Phillida Bunkle wowed Parliament’s debating chamber with a short skirt and a pair of weighty ear decorations. Is a fashion craze with a social message about to sweep the nation? See... Dangly Earring Craze Snowballing [1] . See also... Scoop Images: Steve Maharey's Hit Record [2]

Sludge Report: It’s The Economy Stupid!

Reading the headlines in the papers lately, C.D. Sludge has been rather surprised to read, over and over again, reports appearing to indicate that the NZ economy is AOK, hunky-dory, in short, a box of birds. It isn't. - See... Sludge Report #91 – NZ's Flat (Or Is It Shrinking?) Economy [1] . See also... Sludge Feedback: Shrinking Or What? [2]

Scoop 3.0 Update & Membership Sale: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

‘Socialism’ is more of a political scare word than an objective condition. Even in the US, as Nate Silver’s 538 website pointed out this week there is polling evidence that modern Americans are inclined to treat socialism as meaning ‘equality’ rather than the ‘government ownership or control’ that Americans understood the term to mean back in the 1940s...
