PLEASE NOTE: I realise that transgender issues are a minefield which a stupid cis-male like me can blunder into and cause harm. That’s not my intention and please accept my apologies if I do.

The fascinating ability for NZ Corporate media to ignore why Peter Thiel was granted residency

By   /  February 23, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  6 Comments

Our mainstream corporate media refuse to remind you of the possible billions in damages the Kim Dotcom case has opened us up to, they refuse to acknowledge the role of Corporate Hollywood in the extradition case against Kim Dotcom and they refuse to touch the real reason why Peter Thiel was granted residency in NZ.

By   /  February 23, 2017  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  6 Comments

If Jackson’s recruitment encourages other Maori to speak out in similarly blunt terms about the true agenda of the Maori Party and the Iwi Leadership Group, then the electoral dividend for Labour will be substantial.

Why is AUT sponsoring right wing posturing pretending to be journalism?

By   /  February 22, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

Cameron Slater used to do this shit, he took cash from right wing industry to attack and denigrate health officials who demanded change, The Spinoff just makes that process look more palatable because it’s framed as a ‘debate’ with Julie Anne Genter.

It’s supposed to be a broad church, not a cross burning one – Labour’s tin ear towards the Maori Party and MANA

By   /  February 22, 2017  /  Barry Coates, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  8 Comments

The new data on inequality from Oxfam shows an even more obscene disparity than previous reports – 8 billionaires owning more than half the world’s population and two billionaires in New Zealand owning more than the poorest 30% of New Zealanders.
