By   /  March 21, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  8 Comments

As a cis male member of the heteropatriachy, it ain’t for me to step in and pretend to be an expert on how women and their identity towards having children should or shouldn’t be supported, but I can hazard some guesses.

TV REVIEW: The Nation wastes another opportunity – The Generation Debate

By   /  March 19, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  2 Comments

We are never allowed to examine the chains of hegemony in this country, we are only ever permitted to complain about how our individual chain hurts me personally and how your chain doesn’t cut in as deeply as my chain does.

It’s bread and fucking circuses without the bread or the fucking circus.

Caged chicken eggs sold as free range = OUTRAGE – Matt Nippert unmasks Peter Thiel’s mass surveillance clientele = silence

By   /  March 14, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  15 Comments

…so a story on caged eggs sold as free range eggs deserves amplification and endless hand wringing by all parts of the media yet we get only crickets chirping when Matt Nippert points out that one of the global mass surveillance Nazgul gains residency here after their private company is exposed as serving our military and intelligence agencies.

Newsroom is to Stuff what Spinoff is to NZ Herald

By   /  March 14, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

It’s funny watching a bunch of people who have been forced out of their respective news organisations because of the internet reducing ad revenue starting their own online news source. We are seeing the sub contracting out of news services to other groups at arms length from the parent news organisation in a desperate attempt to stay alive and keep credibility in an age where there is nothing but contempt for corporate news.

Trumpwatch: Fake News, Soft News, and Non-News

By   /  March 14, 2017  /  Frank Macskasy, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  35 Comments

Trump’s mis-use of the term “fake news” – to attack and dismiss as untrue, actual news stories – is a corruption of the term for his own purposes. Trump’s actions, statements, tweets, and behaviour has all received media attention – and quite rightly so. Trump is no longer a private individual and his actions and words are no longer unimportant. As the elected leader of the United States, much of what he says and does will be reported.

Funny that we can have extreme weather event after extreme weather event & still no media mentions climate change

By   /  March 12, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  40 Comments

We can not connect the intensive farming practices by the greedy corporate dairy industry (that is polluting and stealing our water while creating climate change gases) with the severe weather we are experiencing.

Can we please have a chat about Rachel Stewart and the NZ Herald?

By   /  March 8, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  27 Comments

To be honest I bit my tongue at the time and waited for the giants of our media landscape to step forward and say something. Because you know, what happened was terrible and it demanded a response that had all our Journalistic best and brightest lining up to turn attention onto what occurred and to denounce it in no uncertain language.
