You spend a couple of hours innocently concentrating on your work and boom - everyone beats you to the scoop that's not a scoop.

A brief analysis of first media coverage of the Venice announcement on Stuff, via the Dominion Post, shows us that

(a) dollar values are important: of the 288 words in the story 6 are monetary figures -
  • spend $650,000
  • $150,000 more
  • raise another $400,000
  • $80,000 report
  • at least $125,000
  • prestigious $50,000
and (b), you can never get enough out of flogging a dead donkey.
