Oh surprise, surprise Steven Joyce suddenly resigns.
What amazes me is the utter lack of journalistic curiosity here.
When it was the Labour leadership fight between Shearer and Cunliffe, the Media were making shit up half the time and it would dominate headlines for weeks upon weeks.
With National no one questioned who leaked the Barclay texts to Newsroom, no one questioned who leaked info on Winston’s super to Newshub, no one questioned why Bill was getting destabilized just before the conference, no one questioned Chris Bishop getting taken out 24 hours before Bill suddenly steps down and now Hooton tells his boy Bridges in the NBR to kill off Joyce by offering him nothing, Joyce reacts in fury with threats, the NBR sacks Hooton (Hooton btw has just been offered a job at the Herald so his power and influence has jumped 10 fold) and suddenly Joyce steps down while the Press Gallery Political Editors seem to have no insights whatsoever!
Look Press Gallery Political Editors, it was written last week ffs…
…what do the Press Gallery Political Editors need to start doing some, you know, journalism?
