Silent Letters

MediaCow wrote about the canning of Flipside; the release of Donna Awatere Huata's surgery plans; more on Steve Braunias, and more questions regarding Hannah Hodson's shift from TV3 to TVNZ. http://dogbitingmen.blogspot.com/2004/11/silent-letters.html

Nippert in the Bud

Mr Neil Falloon writes: FightingTalk writer Matt Nippert is an itch that enjoys being scratched. He thinks he's gangsta? Dre was coming straight outta Compton with an AK. Nippert was coming straight out of Grey Lynn with an AK 05 Festival Pass.... http://dogbitingmen.blogspot.com/2004/10/nippert-in-bud.html

Back to Basics

MediaCow wrote about Hannah Hodson's shift from TV3 to TVNZ; a British Tabloid's story about an Eastenders Star; Steve Braunias' departure from the Listener; the celebrity of Russell Brown. http://dogbitingmen.blogspot.com/2004/11/back-to-basics.html

Mark of the Beast

Ben Thomas wrote: New Zealand's new frontier of justice is employment relations. The Authority is the newest and best news source for gory conflicts dripping with salacious details – the modern day equivalent of the Truth's “morality reporting” on divorce hearings. http://dogbitingmen.blogspot.com/2004/11/mark-of-beast.html
