Hard News Is Here!

- GOOD DAY MEDIAPHILES ... well, she did it: a blunder, an out-and-out foot-in-mouth verbal howler. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, she did it to herself, rather than being lured into it by a political opponent. Air New Zealand shares fell and rose, it seemed, with the Prime Minister's every utterance. See... HARD NEWS 28/9/01 - A Wing and a Prayer [1]

We can now report that we will be making an announcement about our plans early next week. In the meantime we need your support for the NZ Net Awards – the public voting for which closes on Monday!
