    book, book, book, chickens feeding...

    All the President’s Men and many many other similar works, aren’t “journalism”

    Granta, biographies, encyclopedias, all fiction....

    Journalism > Journal > Jour
    writing > book/record > day

    diarists forget it...

    Not to say that thinly veiled fictions can't affect peoples thinking either, Gulliver's Travels anyone?
    best 'they' get that 'satire' fenced off as well, quick smart...

    Blind man's bluff...

    people still seem really keen to pin the new donation story on him too

    Yes folks there's always time for
    another round of
    'Pin the Tale on the Donghua'
    or is it more correctly
    'Spin the Tale on the JohnKey'

    How long till the piñata comes out?
    Though we'll get the 'spiñata',
    some gaudy papier mâché construct
    full of shiny morsels of little substance
    to divert the blindfolded masses
    lashing out in search of hope.

    some party...

    This is war...
    albeit a class war of sorts

    ...to actually have some material to work with

    They have the personnel,
    just not the materiel...
    perhaps an ordnance ordinance
    under urgency, mortar come....

  • Hard News: The Letter,

    Lolly scramble...
    from The Herald article..

    • That he spent $50-60,000 hosting then-labour minister Rick Barker on a cruise on the Yangtze River in China in 2007; and
    • That Liu visited Barker in Hawke’s Bay in 2006, having dinner with him at an exclusive lodge and then meeting for breakfast the next morning. Liu said he made a donation to Hawke’s Bay Rowing, which Barker was associated with.

    The Rick Barker ‘river cruise’ sounds like a ‘honey trap’ of sorts …
    as Barker professes surprise about the magnitude of it at the time
    naive innocent?
    or cunning blinkers?
    - pictures must exist somewhere, mileage to be made and all that…
    Can the HB rowing club confirm Liu’s ‘strategic’ donation?

    interesting food in the capital

    Capital cuisine pops-up to Auckland!

    Some of Wellington's best-known bars and restaurants will be at a "pop up city" at Silo Park on June 25 and 26 to show off some of the best of the capital's food and drink, including craft beer and bespoke cocktails.

    Shame it is invite only...

    Attachment

    from the same loft…

    Damn. Meant to highlight that…

    …and don’t forget this:
    The World Premiere of Chad Taylor and Jonathan King’s movie REALITi will be during the Wellington Film Festival and then screened in the Auckland Film Festival – get your tickets early (when they are available)

    REALITi is a new science fiction film written by Chad Taylor and directed by Jonathan King. It stars Nathan Meister, Michelle Langstone, Graham McTavish, Aroha White, Miranda Manasiadis, Nathaniel Lees and Tim Wong.
    Independently-produced, REALITi was shot on a micro-budget around Wellington over 2013, often with permission. Employing the style and visual language of “new wave” movies, it’s a love letter to both European cinema and New Zealand: a local urban landscape populated with international fears

    ...and action!

    Peter Jackson's ... star on Hollywood or john Keys’ foreign policy

    ...which includes giving the Iron Man 3 movie $3 million cash just so Weta gets the work apparently...

    ONE News obtained the amount of the grant from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment using the Official Information Act.
    The figures show the production spent NZ$23.2m in this country.
    But while that's paid into private hands, in exchange, the studios get a cash rebate from the taxpayer of NZ$3.5m (excluding GST) - equating to 15% of the spend.
    That's paid to a shelf company registered here - both directors are linked to Marvel Studios, who made the film in association with Paramount.

    Liu, Lui?

    now the Herald gets to...

    ...frame the perspective

    And leader David Cunliffe had to fight to keep his job after revelations he wrote a letter for Liu's residency, despite previous denials.

    I thought that baying call only came from media and National, who have no part in Labour's 'employment' decisions.

    It doesn't seem clear who the statement was made to or deposited with?
    Was it The Herald or just at the lawyers office?
