TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

------------


Hard News Is Here!

- GOOD DAY MEDIAPHILES ... it's daft, really, the Worm - an electronic mood meter driven by 100 flakes who haven't worked out how they're voting yet. The usual swinging-voter lollies - crime, immigration and the Treaty - inevitably hit the hot button. Or, rather, hot knob. See... HARD NEWS 19/07/02 - And the Rain Stopped ... [1]
