The Thursday Wire
With Fill-In Host Noelle McCarthy

12.15 Holly Walker Critic Magazine.
Holly is on the front page of the Herald today, courtesy of a piece in Critic Magazine which she edits. The Piece is called “Diary of a Drug Rapist” and it’s got Rape Crisis up in arms. The police say it constitutes Date Rape 101. Holly sez she was offended too, but the piece was too important not to publish. She joins us on the Wire at 12.15

12.30 Martyn “Bomber” Bradbury.
Bomber knows a fair bit about drink spiking since an episode of his “Stakeout” tv series dealt with the issue. As a former editor of Craccum magazine he’s also been in the thick of student media. He’s on the Wire to talk about the Critic controversy.

1.00 Matt Nippert. The Listener.
We haven’t spoken to Listener hack Matt since he flew the coop to Colombia University. He joins us with an insight into the media agenda in the USA.

1.30 Alastair Thompson Scoop.co.nz
With his regular feature “In the House”

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.

Ian Powell: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?

On 19 June the Sunday Star Times published my column on the relationship between the Labour government’s stewardship of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system and the outcome of the next general election expected to be around September-October 2023: Is the health system an electoral sword of Damocles for Labour...

The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>

Digitl: Infrastructure Commission wants digital strategy
Earlier this month Te Waihanga, New Zealand’s infrastructure commission, tabled its first Infrastructure Strategy: Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa. Te Waihanga describes its document as a road map for a thriving New Zealand... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>
