    Stuff has article after article from opinion writers opining that Winston wont stuff things up while acting PM, laziest journalists in the world and totally pointless pieces. Is there an editor in charge somewhere.

    Another good example of the importance of all our main media not being under the same label today. The Herald has a write up about something and at least one of their NZME radio stations carries the story, “The Herald says…”

    Under one banner, one reporter says something and all the main media tells us that that is how it is. Of course saying this might be about my media cynicism. Which is an outlook well-founded and proven to be wise virtually every single day.

    When Giuliani said that Stormy Daniels has no credibility because she is is a porn star, he neglected to mention that his client, trump, has appeared in three Playboy porn videos.

    Giuliani is a pig. That is all.

      You know what they say about wrestling with a pig. Mueller is finding that out.
