    "Radio New Zealand is radio-centric ..."

  • Feed: A scientist researches restaurants, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    Gourmandingo - Slave to Food!

    Yeah – who do you have to kill?

    I know there was a competition,
    but...
    ...that's well beyond
    'licking' a few stamps!
    Sir!

    ;- )

    But seriously,
    surely Russell could get you
    a 'Feed Blog' Press Pass
    so you can break bread
    forgivingly with those
    who press past against you...

    Scientists are reporters, too!
    blog or blag your way in...
    bon appetit

  • Hard News: The Big Chill, in reply to Lucy Telfar Barnard,

    Venn in Rome…

    …a sub-set of dissemination

    would ‘dissemination’ presuppose ‘aggregation’
    ie ‘seed’ gathering for dispersal

    Surely any aggregation of words and ideas (article, book, blog) is an ‘agency of news’ albeit briefly in some cases.

    News is merely anything fresh, novel or noteworthy, the last being very subjective…
    Broadcast liberally much falls on rocky ground,
    and may over-run fallow lands, and other fields,
    but can also take root in unexpected places…
    (if it is altered in any way it can
    wreak havoc on a delicate system)

    as always it is about controlling the conduit,
    and the content. (their metier is the meter)
    - much like the relationship between sewage and sewers, perhaps?

    :- )

  • Hard News: The Big Chill, in reply to WH,

    When you put these things together you should reach the conclusion that a freelance journalist or author can be a “news medium”...

    Where do 'publishing' and 'publication' sit in this continuum?
    (both as a verb and noun)

  • Hard News: The Letter, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Plead the 5th (eye)...

    Key said: “I was told that there was [donations to Labour]. I’m not going to talk about my sources.”
    However, he said he had not seen the statement and did not know if anyone in his office had. “I’ve heard about it.

    Disturbs me a bit how much time Mr Key seems to spend gossiping and 'hearing things'.
    He's not a journalist, how dare he expect to protect his sources!
    He is just like us isn't he?

    the statement

    as someone on Morning Report txted yesterday - was it a sworn statement or an affadavit?
    if not it's just another piece of paper of unknown provenance, one person's recollections against another's.

    It's a bit rich for Key to be asking Donghua Liu to now show something that Key himself has been 'spruiking' as the implied 'real deal' for some time, surely he hasn't been 'selling us short' again?

  • Hard News: The Letter, in reply to Russell Brown,

    We disclose where it’s required and that’s exactly what we’ve done.
    Our practice is disclose according to the rules.

    Unless it's a 'disclosure' about another party...

  • Hard News: The Letter, in reply to Steve Barnes,

    Cone the barbarian...

    can we expect a return to barbarism under a future John Key led government?

    Waddya mean 'expect a return'
    - been to Chchch lately?
    Culture will only occur in state sanctioned precincts, the state has thrown out elected officials and processes, people have been robbed of half the value of their land in a shell game with insurers, and more - the barbarians aren't at the gates, they're settling in with a drink...

    Tate modern?

    What We Do In the Shadows

    The shorts I've seen, put me in mind of Polanski's
    Fearless Vampire Killers art direction...
    (but in Wellington, of course)
    must check it out, soon.
