New Trustees for Scoop Foundation

New Trustees for Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism

Joining the Scoop Foundation Trust Board are veteran journalist Jeremy Rose and Public Good Aotearoa NZ convenor Jan Rivers.

"Jan and Jeremy will bring significant additional capacity to the governance side of the new Foundation and we are extremely glad to have them on board", said Scoop Foundation Trust Board chair Margaret Thompson. The fourth member of the Trust Board is outgoing editor Alastair Thompson.

Scoop's transformation into New Zealand's first charitable trust board owned general news publisher began at the end of 2014. Over the course of 2015 Scoop has been replacing its advertising business model with a new business model centred around its 500,000 strong monthly readership.

Scoop launched its new product suite in May and June 2015, and as 2016 began Scoop was supported by nearly 1000 Scoop Foundation members and over 100 accredited organisations. Accredited organisations have signed up to Scoop's commercial use licenses, acknowledging that Scoop's approach to the curation of news, and provision of a real-time, freely available news service to the public, assists them in their business activities.

Binoy Kampmark: Foreseeable Risk: Omicron Makes Its Viral Debut
It has been written about more times than any care to remember. Pliny the Elder, that old cheek, told us that Africa always tended to bring forth something new: Semper aliquid novi Africam adferre. The suggestion was directed to hybrid animals, but in the weird pandemic wonderland that is COVID-19, all continents now find themselves bringing forth their types, making their contributions. It just so happens that it’s southern Africa’s turn... More>>

Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>
