Bradbury bollocks – Shame on the rottten MSM!!!

Blaming the media for one’s political debacles is common in the blogs, like this from ‘xtasy’ at The Standard.

The problem is that many “journalists” are themselves rather right leaning, fond of Key and his government, so they willingly quote such supposed “independent” advice on matters. The Taxpayer’s Union and the likes are being quoted and invited by all kinds of MSM, ranging from the likes of Radio 1ZB and Radio Live over to even Radio NZ National (e.g. Jim Mora) for radio, also by the large TV news channels, and print media.

Perhaps we should apply the “three strikes and you are out” to all journalists quoting or inviting such organisations?

Apart from that the bias is just gob smacking, and listening in to Radio Live after 03 pm this afternoon, Duncan Garner was ranting on about Cunliffe again, and why he had not fronted up with having used a trust for assisting his candidacy in the leadership competition for Labour’s leader. He even speculated that one of the two donors that David Cunliffe refused to name, may be Kim Dotcom.

This kind of stuff comes from the likes of Garner, Gower and a fair few others somewhat regularly, and it is predominantly targeted at Labour and the Greens, while the Nats and Key are mostly let off lightly.

It seems to be getting worse by the day, and no matter how many apologies, adjustments and improvements Cunliffe may come with, he seems to be the target now, to be shot to pieces, before the election even takes place.

Shame on the rottten MSM!!!

But it looks more desperate when it is in a blog post at one of the big blogs. Martyn Bradbury at The Daily Blog in Latest msm Cunliffe feeding frenzy over donations goes into excuse and blame overdrive.

Yawn.

In a new style of campaigning via the Labour leadership campaign, Cunliffe decided to use a private trust to collect donations. The mainstream media feeding frenzy is the usual froth from a Press Gallery now seemingly taking verbatim editorials from John Key.

An absurd claim.

I don’t care that Cunliffe used a trust for the leadership campaign, this Government are well known for the manner in which they demonise anyone dissenting and the secrecy the trust provided was to protect donors, it wasn’t to hide them and Cunliffe’s offered to pay back everyone not prepared to publicly declare.

The reasons why they were anonymous is the deciding issue here, not how.

So blatant hypocrisy doesn’t matter, the left can do anything to avoid ‘demonisation’.

Voters don’t give a toss about who donated what in a leadership contest, they care about affordable housing, child poverty and providing protections to our fragile environment. They care about sustainable jobs, rising inequality and well funded education. They care about mass surveillance and unsafe work places.

The mainstream corporate media on the other hand care about constructing a narrative to discredit Cunliffe. Astounding that Judith Collins appears to front for her Husband’s company in direct conflict with the Cabinet Manuel, and we don’t see anywhere near the level of media scrutiny of that.

With media bias like this, I’m surprised Key isn’t polling 70%.

With bloggers like this I’m surprised that Mana, the Internet Party and Labour aren’t soaring in the polls.

Just kidding.

With excuses like this and blaming anyone but your own ineptness it’s not surprising the left are failing to connect with voters and that voters are deserting elections in droves.
