Oh aren’t the NZ Press Council a disgustingly despicable pack of double standard hypocrites?
They won’t lift a finger against the racist cartoons by Al Nisbet
Despite public backlash, the Press Council says it won’t act on any complaints over two controversial political cartoons until the newspapers’ editors have had time to remedy the situation first.
…let’s not forget, this isn’t the first time Al Nisbet has been shockingly racist, remember this cartoon in 2001?
…the Press Council have even had their mouthpiece on TV defending cartoonists being able to say unpopular things, and how important it is for cartoonists to be able to say offensive things, freedom of speech blah blah blah.
Really? The fucking NZ Press Council defending cartoonists right to offend? Isn’t that funny? Isn’t that just a gross double standard by these maggots?
I ask because when the NZ Herald sacked Malcolm Evans for THIS cartoon in 2003….
…the NZ Press Council didn’t defend Malcolm’s right to offend, they in fact backed up the NZ Herald in their sacking of Malcolm by rejecting a complaint from the Palestine Human Rights organization AND they supported the Herald’s ‘right’ to refuse publishing any letters on the issue.
So let’s just get this straight shall we? NZ Press Council says it’s okay for Cartoonists to offend Maori and Pacific Islanders, but if you as a cartoonist offends Israel, then not only will the Press Council support the sacking, they’ll even go as far as supporting censoring any letters criticizing that sacking.
The NZ Press Council is as racist as Al Nisbet’s cartoons.
