Dear Story on TV3.

Your jumped up little clown of a reporter who covered the TPPA protests did himself and your network a disservice. Which when you consider how shit your network has become after killing off Campbell Live for political reasons, is somewhat difficult.

Mocking the protesters from your studio reminded me why you sanctimonious arseholes desperately need some competition at 7pm.

And you are going to.

TDB will announce next week a new 7.01pm Current Affairs show to go head to head with Story and 7 Sharp. It starts at 7.01pm so you as the viewer can look at the right wing shit served up on Seven Sharp and the right wing crap served up on Story and quickly realise there is NOTHING intellectual going on there and you can swap over to watch us at 7.01pm.

The 4th estate have abdicated their obligations to democracy, it’s time for the 5th estate to step up and do what they can’t.

We can either blame the media or be the media.

Details next week.

  1. Heavens Martyn, that sounds like mana from heaven – will it be on at seven pm because we watch John Campbell on Channel fifty in the evenings from five until six thirty pm. – good luck with the new show – it will be appreciated in our household. Always enjoy your commentaries on what’s going on in NZ – the MSM wouldn’t know their ass was on fire frankly.

    • Aye! All I thought that day was thank heavens John Campbell is back in time to actually report rather than distort, which is what “Sorry” I mean ” Story” did.

  2. Mainstream media cannot possibly tell the truth about anything of significance. If they did it would be over for them in a week.

    Therefore, expect more infantile reporting, lampooning, pro-fascism etc. from the mainstream media until it all goes down…..probably later this year, the way things are looking, but definitely by 2020.

  3. In a crowd measured by some to be north of 40,000 there inevitably will be a few people there because of the their mates or because everyone else was there.

    For TV3 to pick out these vanishing small number of individuals and play their clueless responses as to why they were there to draw an insulting political implication about the motivations of tens of thousands of others, is scraping the bottom of journalistic barrel.

    It is vicious right wing propaganda at its worst, that would leave even Fox News to shame.

  4. Great news.

    And I’m thankful that TDB keeps an eye on TV3 “news” (the scare quotes are deliberate).

    I certainly don’t and won’t.

    Exercise your power and continue the boycott of TV3 news and all of its in-house programming.

  5. Most of the media celebrity buggers on TV1 and TV3 are earning several hundreds of thousands of dollars as their pay and are working for the big corporates! Fancy them being honest, factual, unafraid and balanced! Most of them simply aren’t! Easy to see! Many of these media bastards have lost their sense of fairness, honesty and journalistic principles and responsibility as the fourth estate-the very essential fourth pillar of democracy.

    I am looking forward to your ‘7.01pm Current Affairs’ broadcast. High time! Make it good. The country needs it more than ever.

    • Sorry for re posting this comment as the previous one did not have the edit function and did not indicate it had gone through.

  7. And you were the media that day Martyn and again thanks for giving us the truth and good photos about the demonstration instead of a bunch of fluff and BS.

    Both Channel 1 & 3 were disappointing but then we know why.
    We are still boycotting them ( except to see how they covered that day ) — hope others are as well.

    • yes Blake

      “Both Channel 1 & 3 were disappointing but then we know why. We are still boycotting them ( except to see how they covered that day ) — hope others are as well”

      Us all to, we get all our news from RNZ and TDB now.

      We are sane again hurray.

  8. Duncan and Heather simply made themselves look like a couple of immature school kids mocking the opposition sports team, instead of acting anything remotely like professional “journalists”.
    Disappointing really, as Heather once looked like having a respectable career in journalism. Instead has resorted to continually debasing herself on an equally poor quality forum. Wonder what Barry thought of it all.

  9. TV3 bosses got rid of more talented people, so what do we expect?

    I do not even bother watching Story now, after having seen too much trash on it when they started. I do not like Garner as he is not really that good a journalist, and he is biased anyway. And his offsider has never impressed me much.

    But we can enjoy much better reporting by John Campbell now, on public radio with pictures:

  10. Considering the crap that calls itself journalism these days, you could train a monkey to eat bananas and wear a tutu, and it would still have higher ratings than a current affairs show on TV1 or TV3. NZ journalism is a joke compared to the rest of the world, as even Al Jazeera and Russia Today do a better job, with an agenda and all.

  11. Both TV channels seemed to have the same agenda for Waitangi day coverage – to make sure John Key would be the star of the show. That he wasn’t even there didn’t matter, they followed him around to the rugby astonished that people were heckling him. Seems the MSM just don’t get that the whole world doesn’t revolve around Key and that people are wising up to his b..s

  12. Words from Heaven alright Martyn, you beaut’.

    We will stan together to get all Kiwis’ that give a damn to tune in and also participate also mate be assured.

    Go Martyn, Go for these crime’s committed by this false government.

    Steven Joyce is one of the key targets that must be centred on as he is using his position within his public funded what I call the “Ministry of Propaganda” that is now called MBIE.

    This is his political central nerve centre and he recklessly uses our public funding there for the express development of all his rotten destructive strategies.

    Have a great day Martyn.

  13. TV3 has demeaned itself to a new low because it wants to keep on the good side of the Dearest Leader John Key.
    It’s painful watching the new Newshub. In fact it’s pathetic. I think I can only tolerate say 10 minutes boring news items before my mind wanders off to more interesting articles like the Daily Blog.
    Ad so Martyn thankyou for all your excellent articles in the Daily Blog. I notice you are no longer in the NZ Herald and can only guess it’s because the NZ Herald has become the mouth-piece of the Key government.

    • Negged you by mistake, when I meant to +1 you. The NZ Herald is a foreign-owned paper, which gets most of its ‘Journalism’ from their foreign owners (who demand a conservative narrative). They are nothing more than a propaganda organ like Stuff. Until NZ gets a national and NZ owned paper, the NZ Herald will be lazy and not bother to feed more than rant pieces, as right now they have a monopoly alongside Stuff and set a very low standard. Harsh to say maybe, but you can look at almost any paper in the UK or US and see a much higher standard of journalism.
