Scoop Review of Books
Scoop is NZ's largest independent news source; respected widely in media, political, business and academic circles for being the place on the internet for publishing “what was really said”, and for the quality of its analysis of issues. The audience of the Scoop.co.nz are optimistic and intelligent, affluent technology users, free thinkers, confident, media savvy and informed. They want to be leaders not followers and they are likely to be in positions of influence. Scoop also attracts a discerning general readership seeking an alternative to other major news media.
Werewolf is edited by Gordon Campbell. Gordon has been a member of the Parliamentary Press Gallery since the mid 1980s, and was a feature writer and columnist for the NZ Listener magazine from 1978 until 2006.

He has also been writing, editing and publishing Werewolf, an online journal of politics, art and culture that has contributors from around New Zealand, the US and Britain. Werewolf is a source of insight and in-depth journalism that is a must read for anyone looking for comprehensive reporting on the big issues.
