As I told you the other day, Bernard Hickey has split from interest.co.nz and is starting up his own journalism.org.nz. No problems with this, everyone seems to have worked it out.
Bernard even jumped on Red Radio and told us Selwyn Pellett was helping him out.
Comment of the week
Perhaps Bernard’s first story could be how much taxpayer funding Selwyn Pellett has been receiving in corporate welfare over the years? And the rorts that have gone on for R&D and “high tech” funding?
Another comment has raised a roofist sort of argument.
After extensive publicity this week I see numbers have slightly risen in his begging poll to 259 responders.
So how much of journalism.org.nz will be driven by Labour funder and “critical friend” Selwyn Pellett? And how can they say they are a “new” sort of thing when they too appear backed by a rich, politically motivated and opinionated friend of a political party?
