  • Hard News: Calling the race before it's over,

    "You can’t convince the voters if you can’t convince your own caucus."

    Would only be true if the caucus reflected the wider electorate or even the half or so who might conceivably vote Labour. I'm not convinced that's the case.

  • Hard News: Killing Volume,

    It's hard not to come away from this wondering if the likes of APN, or for that matter Fairfax, have what it takes to survive in an online world.

    Momentum only carries you so far, being able to hire decent journalists and give them something resembling a career path helps. Being able to forge lucrative relationships is also part of the mix.

    Turning a decent nice magazine into folding green stuff is right at the top of must haves.
