Hello from New Zealand!
We are looking forward to the monitoring. The monitors are all staff and students from either Victoria University of Wellington, Massey University or Otago University.
We are monitoring the internet news for the first time in 2009. We will begin the day by taking snapshots of the news stories on the six different internet news sites we are monitoring so as to capture the news at a particular time, and avoid a situation where we keep losing one story and getting new ones as the sites are update.
We are also going to be monitoring six newspapers, seven radio broadcasts, (including one in the indigenous language, Maori), and four television news broadcasts, again including one in Maori.
