Media watch – Monday

13 February 2017

MediaWatch

Media Watch is a focus on New Zealand media, blogs and social media. You can post any items of interested related to media.

A primary aim here is to hold media to account in the political arena. A credible and questioning media is an essential part of a healthy democracy.

A general guideline – post opinion on or excerpts from and links to blog posts or comments of interest, whether they are praise, criticism, pointing out issues or sharing useful information.

As usual avoid anything that could cause any legal issues such as potential defamation or breaching suppression orders. Also remember that keeping things civil, legal and factual is more effective and harder to argue against or discredit.

Sometimes other blogs get irate if their material is highlighted elsewhere but the Internet is specifically designed to share and repeat information and anyone who comments or puts anything into a public forum should be aware that it could be republished elsewhere (but please include attribution).

  1. Tweet, tweet, double standards, PC gone mad category. Question for me would be would Ms Delahunty ever have called this Maori racism? Willing to bet the house that she NEVER would.

    Did anyone see the guy at a ‘public event’ in Germany.. ‘accidentally’ singing the old Nazi national anthem, rather than the so-called ‘current one’.. OOPS 😀

    btw; I hear Mr t was watching, from the sideline ?

      No, didn’t hear about it – got a link? It is so hard these days to distinguish made up news (aka: fake news or alternative facts) with real news.

      And if Mr T (Trump?) was watching from the sidelines I doubt it happened – or at least not in Germany, since I don’t believe he is in Germany at the moment.

      So, have you a source for this story, or have you just MSU? (that is made sh*t up).
