The Scoop's Top Three

Published: Wed 14 Jul 1999 12:38 PM
One: Backch@t's Media Bias Survey
Yesterday's survey by Backch@t may have been as Bill Ralston said "an anecdotal snap-shot in time", but it does make for interesting reading. It may also say as much about those who were asked the questions as it does the subject itself.

Two: Labour withdraws support, announces price freeze

Backch@t Feedback
The Scoop while admiring the survey and its intent, had a look at the web site and found the math dubious.
The show's producers have responded and said the copy for the site was based on incomplete figures and the calculation ended up the same in the final survey as did ours - ie TVNZ rates 3.5 on their scale.
The survey is fascinating for any political junkie, but for gossips whom said what about who is even more gossip worthy.
