For 16 years Scoop has been making an enormous contribution to the NZ media landscape. They reckon that “the news is broken”, and they want to build a sustainable independent news organisation for the people of New Zealand.

On Friday at 10am Scoop’s Alastair Thompson will join us here on The Standard for a question and answer session. Look out for a post around 9am (comments will be moderated live from 10).

Have you ever complained about the “mainstream media”? Then support an alternative! Public Interest Journalism – use it or lose it…

Please contribute to Scoop’s latest pledge drive here:

Building a Sustainable Independent News Organisation for the People of New Zealand

The news is broken. As traditional advertising revenues dry up, New Zealand’s major news publishers are dumbing down or distorting the news to keep their businesses alive. The newly-formed Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism is seeking your support for its solution to the news crisis.

In this campaign we’re seeking $50,000 from individual donors and targeting corporate and institutional donors for a further $50,000 in matching funds.

    That’s a lotta money that seems to be needed in order to keep the news media honest.

    Wouldn’t it just be easier to sack the prime minister?
