  • Hard News: Mediaworks: The only horizon…, in reply to Russell Brown,

    On a technical level it could be produced fairly cheaply. But you wouldn’t be able to employ 22 people on proper salaries to make it, so you’d need to get a bit creative about how you went about things.

    80 odd K subscriptions at $10 a year would be a start perhaps? Unless those petition numbers were BS. With some on a higher kick in, with a show sponsor and regular advertising, Netflix or someone also kicking in. A potential audience of 300K plus on the rescreens surely would be a tasty looking carrot for any streaming service looking for credibility. John C? Some instant cred.
    Though I suppose they would then piss off all the numerous Nat supporters, which isn’t such great business…though Campbell’s audience is wider than just left/right.

    If you got a streaming company with enough views breaking investigative stories the other media would have to pick it up.

    In a thread related topic- how expensive would a solely web based show funded by someone like NetFlix or some such be for Mr Campbell?

    Imagine if David Cunliffe was still leading the Labour Party. Wouldn't he have an enormous amount of credibility on the affordable housing issue and the capital gains tax? It's a pity- I liked seeing him and his wife in the background of the Key ogles Kate's hair meme. What might have been.

    Plague on both their houses. We are entering a cashed-up, political-favours, poor-excluded electoral system and a spot the difference Republicans/Democrats political life. I guess we should shut up and vote for Hilliary right?

    How effective have those been who knifed him? The career-ites and the Blair-ites. Can't wait for the Change the Coat of Arms too Labour old white right-wing charge.

    Still, must cut benefits for those who don't vote= winner, I'm sure.
    The twitter boycott to the rescue! Meh. :-(

  • Hard News: About Campbell Live,

    Okay which dystopian future have I woken up in where Julie Christie and Mike Hosking control the future of the airwaves?

  • Hard News: Some reprehensible bullshit,

    Sorry, I told a lie. There is not one BS Len Brown story on the front of the Herald web page. There are two.

  • Hard News: Some reprehensible bullshit,

    Wait- on the front page of the Herald there are calls for recall elections. On the basis of 'secret rooms'.

    The Herald. Gutter journalism since I don't know about a year ago. Before Granny was a Tory from on high, now she's down and dirty.

  • Speaker: An Open Letter To David Cunliffe,

    Well something divides the PAS.

    This is not like the Clark years though, very obviously. The leader has been selected by the party and the caucus, so previous precendents are a little shakey.

  • Hard News: A call from Curia,

    Could be looking ahead to coalition negotiations and potential leadership changes? Sounding out about Peters and English.

  • Hard News: We can do better than this,

    Except

    …Iannucci shows us everything that is going on- all the pants-sh*tting, the swearing, the horrible moments of truth, the contemplating of living with mind-curdlingly daft compromises, the panic, the inspired moments, the haranguing, the small wins, the palaver and also he gets quite a few laughs for it.

  • Hard News: Radio New Zealand: changing…,

    "We can only hope that the proposed changes don’t break things that don’t need fixing."

    Here was me thinking that as a provider of Radio about NZ, radio NZ already had an excellent internet service. Concerned about any changes. After Guyon to Morning Report I'd need to feel that the service was going to remain clearly and significantly a public service and not feel the need to ape commercial stations.
