TOP SCOOPS

Howard’s End: Cut Out The Media Middle-man

- Do you remember when there were only one or two newspapers and your father always argued out loud with the editorials? Do you remember the stories your local newspaper selected for you to read? Do you remember how control was exercised over what you and your family thought? Those days are gone - aren't they? See... Howard's End: Free Press For Free People [1]

SCOOP S.O.S. Feedback: Angelic Encouragement

I work in the corporate sector where real revenue is earned and am very happy to reciprocate Scoop's initiative by giving back. People and organisations who use Scoop should contribute. The Web is embryonic, traditional revenue models are immature; corporates are generally clueless when it comes to using the web, they pontificate over small budget promotions, angst over committing a few bucks, advertising agencies are often just as clueless about the web and wait for some traditional media metric to pop up into their tarp-screen before being confident about committing a toe in the water...

SCOOP S.O.S. Feedback: Reg’s Challenge To Scoop Users And Readers

Dear Scoop Team, I think you all do a magnificent job! PLEASE KEEP IT UP! Someones got to keep them honest and inform us about what really goes on. I'm 72yrs old, have been an Activist for about 25 of these, and belong to several activist groups. I have only recently become computer literate and enjoy receiving my daily Scoops,( since I am a news junkie), but I like the real news, not the bullshit that gets printed in our daily newspapers, and shoveled into our minds by the tripe that comes out of the big box that has come to dominate many of or lives and persuades us to think THEIR WAY about many of the issues confronting us.

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.
