Who Said It?

This resource is a set of pages on the people who are regularly quoted in the New Zealand news media, documenting their background, and hopefully exposing any bias or conflicts of interest that shape their public statements. For now, I am going to sort the list by the topic the person's comments usually address.

Like the rest of the CoSpiracy site, 'Who Said It?' is licensed under a CreativeCommons license (CC-BY-SA 4.0). It was inspired by SourceWatch.org, maintained by the Centre for Media and Democracy, which is also licensed under CC-BY-SA (and to some degree and its UK counterpart PowerBase.info, initiated by SpinWatch). Over time, I intend to pull copies of NZ-related articles from SourceWatch onto this wiki, and contributors to those projects are invited to incorporate any useful information from these pages into their wiki.
