Media watch – Wednesday

14 June 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.


  1. I see that basketball hero Mr Rodman has taken another trip to North Korea. He is being sponsored by the digital currency ‘potcoin’. This is interesting, because DPRK is not a signatory to the ‘1961 UN conventions on narcotic drugs’ therefore cannabis prohibition probably does NOT exist in North Korea. Maybe hes also gone to ‘set up shop’ or a production facility ?

    Much excitement today over on the WO about pg’s big admission last evening.
    One of the faithful opines…

    “Deep deep down, I think there is a lot of resentment and envy, many moons ago the little spittlebug wanted to become a big blog just like WO, and has tried feeding off it for years. Heaven forbid they could go it alone in the big bad world. The obsession is creepy, the only positive is there is only one of them”

      Don’t think WO is as big a blog as KDC. KDC carries a lot more weight, imo.

    • Juana making things up there. Deliberate bull in a protected environment. Quite deceitful, isn’t it. And lame, if that’s all she can post on then it looks a bit sad for WO.

      And you’re misrepresenting it as an ‘admission’, joining in with the lie. Not a good look for you either. An apology could be appropriate – you can’t try to pass that off as another ‘joke’.

      And what’s particularly ironic is Juana using that post as clickbait.
