By   /  March 18, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

I’ve seen the Greens do some spectacularly stupid things in the past, but handing over one question to the fucking National Party every Parliamentary Question Time is fuckwitedness at a level I’ve never witnessed.

TV REVIEW: Kim Dotcom – Caught in the Web

By   /  December 21, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  26 Comments

What Goldson has created with this documentary is one of the most important things any documentary maker can achieve, a meaningful reflection on a current political issue that at the time was eclipsed with anger and ignorance.

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.

The Nation TV Review

By   /  October 15, 2016  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  10 Comments

NZers are more focused on punishing people rather than convicting the guilty. We are a small minded and bitter volk who are easily led by a mainstream media who use crime porn to boost ratings and the sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind worship Police authority like a masochist worships a sadist.

Corin Dann has Bill English on, Bill’s boring enough to make everything seem fine. Needed to be taken to task on the Government’s cheerleading of Dairy transformation. English could make the second coming of Christ seem dull.

TV REVIEW: Story – viewing notes

By   /  September 16, 2015  /  Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs, Tim Selwyn  /  8 Comments

I, I, I, me, me, me… and I, I, I, don’t care. I can get no sense of height from the radio so I cant recognise the peril and even then I just don’t think I would care. There was no lesson, there was no point – Garner had answered that in the negative by way of his babbling.
