Feedback: A Beautiful Site

In This Edition: A beautiful Site – For Maree Howard – Your Publication


A beautiful Site

Dear Sir,

I take immense pleasure in accessing your website. The concept of uncloured and raw news is fascinating. I find your website most informative and second most authoritative after New Zealand Herald's online edition. But then as you are purely web based news portal. You stand in a unique position. The fast and fact based news agency situated in nation's capital. I have no doubt that you are many times better than, and heavy graphic based 'stuff' website, pages of which take ages to download.

You are smart, factual, fast, reliable and in touch with the latest. I am very much hopeful that you will gain more and more appraisal with time. It was surprising that many people do not even know about your website here in Christchurch ! I am studying Journalism (Hons.) which is a study in mass media and I am fascinated by such innovative attempts in media , especially in a small country like New Zealand with pockets of population scattered in many remote places.

I have been interested in your site even before I came to study in Uni of Canterbury from India, recently. I promise to keep in touch regularly and keep sending in the suggestions. Keep it up !

For Maree Howard

Hi Maree,

Your article on the Squeeze on Gold was very interesting. The U.S. still reports about 8,000 tons of gold, though they haven't had an audit for about 49 years. There is a lot of debate about how much of this gold is really there.

Perhaps this editorial will shed some light on the subject.

Your Publication

I've just read INVESTIGATION: Sept 11th - Unanswered Questions.

It is by far the most extensive and intensive analyses I've ever read and I will share it with many others. Thank you so much for your efforts.

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>>

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.
