Hosking & Gower are hosting debates – so choice is between National Party Casino pimping cheerleader or homicidal sadistic chipmunk

By   /  August 18, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  22 Comments

Hosking is a sexist piece of trash who has spun deluded neoliberal fantasy after neoliberal fantasy to justify his love affair with National while Gower is a homicidal political sadist who crowed about being responsible for taking out Metria in the pack lynching that saw her destroyed.

Never before has the voice of rich white male privilege sounded so delusional. If the tv3 gig ever ends, Gower has a job for life as Trump’s Press Secretary.

Tim Beveridge – white man sings the blues

By   /  August 13, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  3 Comments

I don’t know Tim Beveridge from a bar of soap, he’s a ZB host and I never listen to ZB.

But I do read the columns he writes for the NZ Herald which are filled with the sort of pompous self inflated sense of privilege that anyone hosting a show on ZB seems to be infested with.

His latest column however is so cringe worthy in its ‘why can’t white men get a break’ narrative it just would be wrong to not deeply mock it…

Shock and horror that Mike Hosking is hosting the TVNZ debates has erupted on social media with many claiming he is too biased against Labour to be an impartial host.

I disagree.

Newshub Poll – National 44.4% Labour 33.1% BZ First 9.2% Green 8.3%

By   /  August 9, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  50 Comments

The vast majority of Labour’s gain is at the expense of NZ First and the Greens, Jacinda was only able to pull .8% away from National, and that should be a major worry.

Rich, white, male broadcasters hating on Metiria again

By   /  August 8, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  56 Comments

…I’m not sure what angers Patrick, Garner, Espiner, Hosking, Soper or Armstrong most, that Metiria has highlighted the cruelty of our welfare system and empowered beneficiaries or that the Greens went up despite all orgy of sexist hate they spat at Metiria.

By calling on Metiria to resign over petty things 2 decades ago, Mike Hosking has ruled himself out from hosting TVNZ debates

By   /  August 4, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  15 Comments

His bitterness that despite all his stomping and screaming over Metiria amounted to the Greens going higher than they ever have before in the polls has created a Hosking even more bitter and venomous than usual.

Brownlee must have sat down and worked out how he could look dangerously paranoid and petty with all the grace of Donald Trump in just one gesture. 

He succeeded.

The only time I’ve ever enjoyed watching The AM Show & Mike Hosking’s ‘credibility’ concerns

By   /  August 2, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  18 Comments

The Media’s current ‘what if Jacinda is PM & gets pregnant’ is only a step away from ‘What happens if she has a period while PM’. Is this the fucking 21st Century or not? How can those questions lead the debate? Seeing as Bill English is an anti-abortion radical right catholic who has 6 kids, shouldn’t media be asking if he’s breeding next?
