16:07 Topics - We discuss Judith Collins and enquiries, on a day when the Australian media entrepeneur Eric Beecher says the rise of activism and opinion in journalism is the most serious threat to the future of the profession. Leaders of the European Union are warning Russia is "practically on the brink" of war against Europe. There's been talk among some of their leaders of a 10,000-strong army to be assembled to resist Russian incursions into Ukraine.
16:33 Topics - don't call me feisty, warns Downton Abbey actress Daisy Lewis. Goodbye Sir Owen Glenn. He's become disillusioned with New Zealand. He plans to close his foundation here. He's been driven out of New Zealand, he says, possibly by people with political interests. Sir Owen also cited a media obsessed with unearthing scandal. Hone Harawira's stalked off from an interview with a 3News reporter because she asked him about decriminalizing cannibis. He hates cannabis, he's said drugs are a major problem in Northland communities and he didn't support decriminalisation. Now his position is he doesn't like young people being criminalised because of it. The Ice Bucket Challenge, which we all know about by now. It's been going barely a month. The ALS charity has benefited so far by more than $US70 million.
