The NZ Media are hypocrites and are part of the problem.
They have turned a blind eye to stories of far more gravitas than Clare Curran’s fucking coffee date.
- The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) lied about war crimes and the Herald only did 2 follow up stories where as they did 28 news ‘stories’ on Clare Curran.
- The Human Rights Review Tribunal delivers a devastating blow to the Key Government by ruling against the state for withholding information about Kim Dotcom and awarded him $90 000 with a bare humour in the media.
- And most appallingly, one of the major Hospitals in NZ, Middlemore, has been found to be leaking raw sewage and is infested with black mould because the DHB was too frightened to ask National for money and this grotesque underfunding of Hospitals, Schools, mental health services and social services is how National managed to magically create budget surpluses for almost a decade.
Surely, SURELY, one of our major hospitals infected with black mould and raw sewage who was too frightened to ask Jonathan Coleman for the money to fix these problems would be the biggest story, especially as it is revealed just as Coleman quits and he walks off a Radio NZ inter new before going to air to avoid questions.
SURELY that would be the biggest news story.
Unfortunately the bias of the mainstream media believes Clare Curran having coffee with Carol Hirshfeld and not declaring it in her diary is actually a bigger story, and here is the proof…
…read it and weep journalism fans.
Clare Curran’s coffee date generated a bewildering 195 stories compared to a mere 65 stories for one of our largest Hospitals being so underfunded that raw sewage is leaking into the black mould infected walls.
This glaring example is our clickbait mainstream media at work and the vicious impact they have on swamping and warping the town square debate on what is actually important and meaningful in politics.
