3: Scoop Feedback: Bush Picture Offends

Hello. As a member of the United States citizenry, and as someone who has had to endure the last 8 years of a dishonest, shady man in the presidency, I find your picture of G. Bush offensive. Since your mission is to give news without the "spin", ...

5: Lindsay Perigo: Why Ronny Rocks!

Yesterday Larry King interviewed Nancy Reagan - it was her husband's 90th birthday. She was not an easy interview, seldom venturing beyond a single sentence & often confining herself to "Oh yes" or "Oh no" in her answers. I can ...

11: Scoop Feedback: George W. Bush Priceless

Contrary to Chris Petrousky in New York State, and his/her take on the George W. Bush Priceless piece, I did not find it offensive. It was like a breath of fresh air. I too live in the U.S. and a bit of humor is the only way to get through these ...

12: Rosalea Barker: What does New Zealand mean?

I was asked that question last week by someone in a workplace literacy programme. It was asked in the context of introducing ourselves and talking about what our names mean. New Zealand, I said, doesn't mean anything. It's just the name given to some ...

19: Scoop Feedback: Scoop gets its facts wrong!

Your article "BBC Finds Lost World on West Coast" by John Howard contains an error that I find surprising for a news publication. Steven Spielberg's film "Jurassic Park" was not an adaptation in a modern setting of Conan-Doyles classic, "The ...
