RISE OF XENOPHOBIA THREATENS NEW ZEALAND REPUTATION OVER ZAOUI CASE
Guardian Unlimited: 15 December 2003
The xenophobic reaction in New Zealand to Algerian political asylum seeker Ahmed Zaoui is imperilling Kiwis' reputation for tolerance, writes David Fickling: 'Were it not for his situation, it would be easy to regard the whole thing as Kafkaesque farce; certainly, there has been a touch of the keystone cops in his treatment.

InterPress Service: 5 December 2003

THE BBC AND IRAQ: MYTH AND REALITY - BY JOHN PILGER
Pilger.Carlton.com: 4 December 2003
The second-worst case of denying access to anti-war voices was ABC in the United States, which allowed them a mere 7 per cent of its overall coverage. The worst case was the BBC, which gave just 2 per cent of its coverage to opposition views - views that represented those of the majority of the British people. A separate study by Cardiff University came to the same conclusion. The BBC, it said, had "displayed the most pro-war agenda of any [British] broadcaster". By John Pilger

SCIENCE

NEW ZEALAND ROW AS FREEZE ON GENETIC MODIFICATION ENDS
BBC World: 30 October 2003
New Zealand's debate over Genetic Modification (GM) has returned to centre stage as a moratorium on releasing GM organisms into the environment expires. But in a nation dependent on agriculture and simultaneously proud of its green credentials, opposition is not fading away. Some protesters have gone to dramatic lengths to make their point.

FIJI HAD 'FIRST EMBEDDED JOURNALISTS IN PACIFIC', SAYS BABA
Pacific Journalism Review: 5 October 2003

Launching the New Zealand edition of Pacific Journalism Review at the weekend, Dr Tupeni Baba told academics, journalists and delegates at the Pacific Islands Media Association (PIMA) conference many reporters had been too influenced by Speight's militants.

PACIFIC JOURNALIST RAPS NZ 'TRAVEL JOURNALISM WITH A WHINE'
AUT Journalism: 3 October 2003
New Zealand mainstream media coverage of Pacific issues is often little better than travel writing, says Agence France-Presse correspondent Michael Field.

US 'WAR ON TERROR: GLOBALISATION AT GUNPOINT
Green Left Weekly: 10 September 2003
Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an
environmental and left perspective.
Featured this week: US 'war on terror': Globalisation at gunpoint. In October 1999, Henry Kissinger, secretary of state under US presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, candidly remarked: "What is called
'globalisation' is really another name for the dominant role of the United States." Since 9/11, Washington has the "war on terror" as cover to impose US-dominated "globalisation" at gunpoint. Is al Qaeda really a threat?

BBC World: 20 June 2003
Faced with a trial of some of its islander menfolk over long-standing alleged sex crimes, the future for Pitcairn Island looks bleak.

New Zealand Herald: 11 June 2003

FIJI TV'S MONOPOLY, OWNERSHIP AND THE COMMERCE COMMISSION

Asia Pacific Network: 24 April 2003
Lagging behind in commerce and pressured by globalisation, Fijians urgently need TV programs that will educate them about where their world is going, nationally and globally. Fijians also need TV programs that will help preserve and strengthen Fijian language and culture, also rapidly eroded by globalisation. But, despite its Fijian ownership, Fiji TV is a failure with respect to both sets of objectives. By Dr Wadan Narsey
