The Scoop's Top Three

One: Backch@t's Media Bias Survey

Yesterday's survey by Backch@t may have been as Bill Ralston said "an anecdotal snap-shot in time", but it does make for interesting reading. It may also say as much about those who were asked the questions as it does the subject itself.

Two: Labour withdraws support, announces price freeze

Labour will not support Government legislation to price regulate electricity line companies, and has instead launched a strong attack on the Enterprise and Commerce Minister Max Bradford.

Three: Student Leader Survives Rolling By Ex-Colleagues

The Co-president of the New Zealand University Students' Association, Karen Skinner, survived an attempt to remove her from office at last weekend's NZUSA national conference in Auckland.

Backch@t Feedback

The Scoop while admiring the survey and its intent, had a look at the web site and found the math dubious.

The show's producers have responded and said the copy for the site was based on incomplete figures and the calculation ended up the same in the final survey as did ours - ie TVNZ rates 3.5 on their scale.

The survey is fascinating for any political junkie, but for gossips whom said what about who is even more gossip worthy.
