By   /  June 26, 2017  /  Keith Locke, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  5 Comments

The Saudi-led blockade of Qatar should concern us all. It is virtually an act of war for one country, Saudi Arabia, to cut off all land access to another, Qatar, and then combine with two other countries, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, to restrict air and sea access.

Q+A review: Has anyone contacted slave pen crusader Matthew Hooton yet?

By   /  June 25, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  4 Comments

…this Labour ‘slave scandal’ proves the ease with which a Right Wing blog can still manipulate the NZ mainstream media.

Q+A Review: Disgusting NZ First want legal right to bash children

By   /  June 18, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  81 Comments

This is a huge step backwards for NZ society if the legal right to bash children is allowed to occur and this is the reason progressive New Zealanders need to vote for either Labour, the Greens or MANA to stop this kind of sick, grim politics.

Q+A Review

By   /  June 11, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  3 Comments

Panel is Matt McCarten who announces he’s starting a new Campaign For Change movement, Jennifer Curtin and Fran O’Sullivan. Lockwood Smith is on bewildered by the UK election result.

Duncan Grieve’s unbelievable blog supporting Julie Christie highlights every criticism ever made about his cash for copy blog ‘The Spinoff’

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

Julie Christie was cultural herpes who used TV to distract and dumb down a country. She is the McDonalds of entertainment and is nothing to celebrate or support.

TWITTER WATCH: Are the Greens taking the piss?

By   /  June 1, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

The Greens decision to back a part of the Budget they agreed with has given National ammunition to paint the Opposition as divided and it makes the Budget seem less awful. Bill English is already using this very tactic.

By   /  May 21, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  4 Comments

Bless them all, but I don’t care about their yearly sound of one hand clapping orchestra where they pass around their awards amongst themselves like a never-ending pass the parcel for rich people who are all related and already have all the presents.
