Scoop Column: A Green PM And TVNZ Corporatespeak

Also this week TVNZ got a new yet somehow familiar Chief Executive in the form of Rick Ellis. Trawling through the archives of yesteryear A Week of It dredges up a run-in Rick Ellis had in 2002 with Labour MP Clayton Cosgrove. See... A Week of It: Cover Shocker + TVNZ CEO Pay Problem [2]
