Most Read Items on Scoop – Week Ending Aug 17

The most read item on Scoop this week was a press release from Right to Life attacking Jacinda Ardern for “refusing to defend the natural family”. The vast majority of the traffic was last Sunday.

There was also a great deal of interest in items relating to Scoop’s HiveMind project on a Universal Basic Income.

Another notable entry was on the Government’s decision to bring forward the ban on microbeads. It was published on Thursday morning, very late in the weekly analytic cycle.
