Whale Oil's Len Brown coverage now sees Stephen Cook interview himself
Key on Breakfast: "Generally, monopolies are not a good thing." He was talking about Kiwisaver, not Chorus
Dear it is not true that John Palino could be runner-up and still win the election if Len Brown leaves before being sworn in.
For a man who claims to be a political novice John Palino has got the selective memory loss faculties of a seasoned veteran.
If I didn't already think Palino was a twat, this phrase would've sealed it: "I, an entrepreneur, TV personality and political novice..."
The Len Brown hit job is the most poorly executed political move I've ever seen. The source has turned and most Aucklanders support Len.
5. TBC, Garner is implying that because Brown's daughter wrote a piece on behalf of herself and her sisters, they are fair game.
4. What's shameful, is inviting people to go after Brown's daughters. Wanker.

Poor form with that photo Stuff. Tacky journalism.
Too easy to say LB's sex life not our concern. It speaks to character and judgment which, I don't know about you, does matter in a leader.
Look carefully at your stream of tweets and explain to me why journalists ride around on high horses sneering at nasty vile bloggers again.
The best John Campbell interview of the year, hard work, a year's work, tks to producer too. Worth watching again.

If you missed it — Radio NZ’s apology this morning for Matthew Hooton’s defamatory rant about David Cunliffe:
"My blog was hacked by govt & I have proof" is actually pretty big deal & should be fully explored. "…But I'm not showing you" oh Bomber ffs
that's pretty much pre-2008. Because reality is first home buyers are financially more vulnerable.
sorry, then what are you arguing for? 95% pre-approved, as is the case at the moment?
Can I be worried both on behalf of those who will now never own, and those who snuck in but may lose their houses?
Of course the PM's going to watch the race. He's either about to lose $30m of public money, or permanently secure Auckland for National.

So Patrick Gower is in New York. That explains why covered Cunliffes Cabinet selection straight, without any bitchiness then.

Koch brothers warn that a higher tax rate on them could force them to lay off as many as a dozen congressmen.

I used to think Russell Brand was a dick. Now I think he's fiercely intelligent & brave, hurling words like grenades at the establishment.
Well I must say the Rich Yachtie, We-are-the-world, sports rewrite of Pokarekare Ana is depressingly repulsive.
absolutely right. It also perpetuates notion that culture in Auckland takes place in wealthy, conservative areas
Revealing line: “a trip to Sth Auckland might take up to an hour” – maybe for the writer, not for those in South and East Auckland
