Meta media placement

In his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying, Oscar Wilde observed that, "Life imitates art far more than art imitates life." And in the more modern context, where reality TV has become one of the more popular forms of entertainment, this expression could be evolved to say something like: 'real life imitates reality TV far more than reality TV imitates real life'. And nowhere is this clearer than in the example of a Reno Rumble poster that has been pasted onto the wall of the TVNZ building, which is currently under construction.

 Masterchef or master of mixing the packet gravy? Maggi reminds us of an easier accompaniment—UPDATED

In a television age dominated by reality cooking shows like Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules, no doubt many of us feel we need to step up our game in the kitchen, and make sure each dish has at least one food source which is impossible to pronounce or perhaps includes kale from a remote region of New Zealand which has grown to the sound of children’s laughter and been watered only with water collected from a luscious mountain stream, or some chia seeds, or maybe some salted caramel topped with cream churned by the feet of baby ducks. But considering most of us don’t have the time or money to regularly produce artisan cuisines, sometimes we just want to whip up something quick, something we know improves the taste of our meal and something that won’t make us recoil from the state of our bank balances, like some ready-made gravy paste by Maggi.

Year in Review: Liz Fraser

Any year that includes a receivership is going to be difficult for a broadcaster. Add to this a breakup with a principal programming provider, gaffe-prone radio hosts and a steep decline in viewership, and things start to look increasingly bleak. Yet, despite these uneasy times, MediaWorks still managed to produce a few hit shows, increase its revenue and hold onto key audiences. So, here's what Liz Fraser, the director of sales and marketing, thought of a topsy-turvy 2013.
