Media watch – Sunday

26 February 2017


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).

    An example of our world as it is this morning.

    The first story on the RNZ news at 8.00am was about a rugby player allegedly buying drugs in France. The second item was about a man being shot dead by police north of Wellington in the early hours of the morning.

      You mean to say that Jacinda’s utterly amazing, beyond belief, spectacular and awesomely inspiring win in the Mt Albert by-election didn’t make the cut?

    It’s being reported an *Auckland Road Cop* stopped a 4WD on the Auckland Motorway. Then when opening the door of the vehicle, she goes on to describe the occupants as, *……just a seething mass of unrestrained humanity” o_O

    Wayne said it was enuff to put him off his breakfast ❗

    They stopped short of divulging race or ethnicity.

      ‘They stopped short of divulging race or ethnicity.’

      Seems to be a growing trend.

      Just another example of Darwinism, I say let them be. The survival of the human race demands they be removed from the gene pool. Charles is calling them home

    Damien Grant asks: *Is the US bullying Dotcom ❓ *

    “…….the decision to extradite is ultimately political, not judicial. Dotcom and co should be tried here if they broke the law, OR LEFT ALONE”

      What a *revolting disgusting bastard* that is Patu ❗

      And in Whaleoil parlance, “ANOTHER DUD JUDGE”.

      Let’s hope the Crown lodges an appeal 😡

      • Ladies, I am also revolted, however please balance the situation by acknowledging that the girl’s mother was complicit and part of the problem. My heart goes out to the girls who I hope can be helped as real victims. Sorry I have to go and barf into the loo!

          The thing is BJ, at least the *mother* did the right thing and topped herself…..we could still bump into this scumbag at the dairy 😡

          As Wayne so eloquently put it, “They’re willing to see Kim Dotcom locked up for 25 years for an alleged *civil breach of copyright” from some Hollywood Jews, but happy to let *sexual deviants* like this walk among us”
