    L00L !

    Well,… it was hardly something we all wanted to have to admit to, but… that’s the reality. The problem comes when we have tiny minds… which…

    Who decides “What’s important in NZ”?

    Why does RNZ have the right to declare that NZers are interested in, for example, the death of Michael Jackson’s father but NZers don’t need to be told about the Freedom Flotilla on its way from Copenhagen to Gaza, with 2 Kiwis on board, because NZers aren’t really interested in that sort of story?

    The friends I talk to are very interested in international issues ..and aware of having to look outside mainstream media

    So tiny, that we will be gobbled up and spat out by the largest organ-harvesting, species-extincting dictatorship on the planet, almost as an afterthought. “We” don’t exist.

    You left out “Aucklanders hate Wellingtonians and vice versa”…

    Oh yeah, and “Mainlanders hate Pig Islanders”…

    MEDIA = POLITICAL DIVERSION

    I have always loved the way we are small. Colin James in the 90’s laughed about the fact that in the original crimewatch the police announced that they had recovered a boat and wanted the owner to contact them. He laughed then said he would love to live in a country who’s emphasis on crime was dedicated to returning stolen goods. I like the fact that we understand our affect on the environment so well we are prepared to wait fireworks for a whale to leave (and enjoy having a whale frolicking in our habour).

    I think that is more how tiny our media is. And stupid and so in bed with corporate interests that there is no independent news. It’s paid for content or paid not to be in content.
