Scoop Advisory: New Services

The Scoop is proud to announce two new services for readers and subscribers - the Auckland and Australia wires.

The Auckland wire will contain news, releases and other information on Auckland, New Zealand's largest city.

The Auckland wire is a joint venture between The Scoop and Selwyn Manning's Freelance New Zealand.

Selwyn has been an Auckland based journalist for seven years, specialising in politics and social issues. His experience includes cover stories with Metro Magazine and the Listener.

Material for publication can be sent to auckland@scoop.co. General inquiries can be sent to Selwyn at freelancenz@xtra.co.nz or editor@scoop.co.nz or you can telephone him on 021-664-286.

The Australia wire is recognition of the importance of our strong and close ties with Australia. Events in Australia have a large impact on New Zealand and we as a country are poorly informed on what the newsmakers are saying and doing in Australia, we at The Scoop are going to do our little bit to try and make a difference.

The Australia wire is the beginning of exciting developments in that area of which we will be making announcements shortly.

Both of these services can be trialled and purchased via our acclaimed and popular News Agent email service.

Feedback is welcomed.

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>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

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.

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology
