  • Hard News: Media Take: The selling of…,

    I'm an advertising type ( sorry) and yet much of the comms from both sides passed me by because I don't tend to see much TV - I did see the lame runners ad ( creepy) but only on social, and mainly spoofs. I saw Jacinda's car-ride spot on an industry blog. I saw none of the n\National attack ads live, maybe a few glimpses of "let's tax this" served on my phone - exposure pretty much limited to occasional display ads on my phone in Herald app and similar. I guess I saw National billboards around, a bit - the one by the Auckland City Mission was a particularly impressive fail. Pretty poor effort on both sides, really. The key piece of comms was CrosbyTextor's dead cat on the budget hole.

  • Hard News: The Day After Tomorrow,

    This is a disappointing cop out by semi-regulatory bodies BSA and ASA. Not surprising, but...

  • Hard News: Where are all the polls at?,

    At least we don't have 'push-polling' here. Or do we?

  • Hard News: Barclay and arrogance,

    Doesn't he have some GCSB responsibility as well? That works.

  • Hard News: Barclay and arrogance,

    Wow. I had to comb through The Harold online twice before finding a one-line slug on this story in the side column, which referred only to Barclay's statement.

    'Fibbing' is lenient choice of words.

    On the whole, quite encouraging really. Young people give a shit and can be bothered to get out and vote; older people also give a shit and... etc

    I do like the way they have all the candidates on stage for the result to be read formally by a local official - like a village flower show.
