TV News was dominated tonight by Andrew Little’s missed invoice to a right wing advisor. It’s a headline story because it implies Little is a hypocrite. We love to hate on hypocrites.
As fun as that is however, surely the major stories of the day were that the deeply flawed Novopay fiasco cost an extra $45million, the Government is hiding the failures of Charter Schools and that ACC levies were artificially inflated so that English could create the illusion of a surplus for political management.
Some none event missed invoice story is a bigger political issue than $45m in Novopay extra costs, ideologically driven Charter Schools failing and the Finance Minister fraudulently rigging ACC levies so as to pretend NZ will be in surplus?
I mean, for fucks sake right?
The mainstream media is why we can’t have nice things like accountable politics. With journalists like this, National don’t need whaleoil.
