Any day now the mainstream media will start holding the state to account for all that illegal spying with the same gusto they’ve chased Clare Curran’s coffee dates, extra pacific island travel for Baby Neve & a Czech MDMA smuggler.

Any.

Day.

Now.

I’m just assuming this will be the same day as they start to actually investigate the most alarming part of JLRs secret recording, that whole Chinese businessman trying to buy two Chinese nationals a place on the National Party list and they’ll critically analysis the NZDF role in war crimes.

Is it any wonder our populace are so ignorant of what’s really happening in NZ?

    On the plus side, we’ll have plenty of warm fluffy animals stories to muse over on tv1 news, tv3 newshub, rnz, newspapers, etc. Good times.

      And on the bright side, the newspapers come in handy for putting under the cats’ litter.

    Investigative Journalism is Dead in New Zealand

      Not quite dead, there are a few around (off the top of my head, Phil Pennington, John Gerritson, Jeremy Rose, Colin Peacock, and others at RNZ; Michael Morrah in the Shub along with an RNZ refugee or two, Paula Penfold, Niky Hager, John Stevenson, Melanie Reid, etc., etc., etc.). It’s just that they sometimes have to push shit uphill to be heard.
      And yes, then there are the others who think it’s all about them, and still others who obviously have mortgages to pay with fuck all equity and are doing what they need to do to survive. Sometimes you even see them pop up at media awards telling everyone how humble they are at receiving a lump of whatever and what it means to have been given such respect by their peers. It really is quite gorgeous to watch sometimes

    Breaking News! Another Lime Scooter has been found in the Waitemata Harbour this week, thats a total of 89 so far! The Police have been given specific instruction to monitor all scooter traffic and clock up as much overtime as needed to catch the culprits!

    Paula Penfold, Nicky Hager, John Stevenson, Eugene Bingham, Colin Peacock i totally agree with, and i am sure there are others hiding among the dross. Unfortunately for many, there source of news while involved in an uphill battle for survival, are the stenographers of govt. and usa hand outs, the look at me, my opinions are much more important than yours, jokes that pass for news media in this little country

      G.A.P.: “….i am sure there are others hiding among the dross”

      Phil Pennington on RNZ is very good on local matters. He’s paid particular attention to earthquake issues and also did some good work on the problems with imported Chinese steel.

      We don’t have any foreign affairs specialist journalists in the msm; no tradition of it, even. This also applies to RNZ, regrettably.

    You are not for real, are you, asking such a question???

    The MSM is in the pocket of the rich and powerful.
