The Monday Wire.
Host: Rebecca Wright
Producer: Imogen Neale

12 00 b news with Imogen Neale, Surf and Weather with Rebecca

12 20 Dr Tim Dare from Auckland University is coming on the show at 12.20 to talk about the ethics of a public company, NZ Post, canvassing for marketing information – Can they justify making more junk mail for you and me so they make more profit?

12 40 In Christchurch you can go to a nos bar where you can buy a nos balloon to go with your vodka tonic, or pop into one of many shops trading in nitrous oxide and herbal high pills. Or for the more apathetic you can have it delivered to your doorstep by calling 021 getnos. Mark from Cosmic Corner on Highstreet in Christchurch will be joining us at 12.40.

1 00 At 1pm I’ll be replaying this mornings interview with Helen Clark from Camilla’s Breakfast.

1.20 Wallace is back with another Behind the Scenes look at Auckland’s arts and culture offerings.

1.40 Jane Clifton is coming on the wire in place of Pamela Stirling to talk about opinion polls and the tendency of the media in NZ to pad stories out so there isn’t just dead air.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial. From the desk of Noelle McCarthy News and Editorial Director Radio 95bfm

Gordon Campbell: On Vladimir Putin’s Wonderful, Fabulous, Very Good Year

Safe to say that no-one, but no-one has had a better 2016 than Vladimir Putin. What an annus mirabilis it has been for him.

Gordon Campbell: On The Media Normalisation Of Trump

We all supposedly agree that the media is going to hell in a tabloid handbasket, but the trends to the contrary can be a bit harder to spot. In his 1970s book The Right Stuff, Tom Wolfe had mocked the way the media instinctively acts as what he called The Victorian Gentleman. More>>

Binoy Kampmark: The Reality Of Fake News

Fake news as reality; the inability to navigate the waters in which it swims; a weakness in succumbing to material best treated with a huge pinch of salt. That, we are told, is the new condition of the global information environment. More>>

Alastair Thompson: Helen Kelly And The Compassionless People
I wasn't a close friend of Helen Kelly's. But her passing has moved me to tears more than once in the past two weeks. I feel honoured to be one of the many who worked with her and was helped by her. More>>

Postnatal Depression: 'The Thief That Steals Motherhood' - Alison McCulloch

Post-natal depression is a sly and cruel illness, described by one expert as ‘the thief that steals motherhood’, it creeps up on its victims, hiding behind the stress and exhaustion of being a new parent, catching many women unaware and unprepared. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On News From The US Election Eve

Here’s a somewhat scary headline from October 30 on Nate Silver’s 538 site, which summed up the statistical factors in play at that point: “The Cubs Have A Smaller Chance Of Winning Than Trump Does” More>>
