Mike Hosking hates Jacinda SOOOOOOOO much, that he’s finally taken to siding with the virus in his latest column…
If you ever needed more evidence that what is going on here is increasingly political, ask yourself why the modelling the government has relied on for this mess was released publicly.
As soon as it was, Ashley Bloomfield dutifully told us this modelling was why we are doing what we are doing.
The first question to ask is, why this modelling? Is it right? How do we know? Are there those who are experts in their field who argue modelling like this is pseudo-science ? Yes there are. We have featured one such piece of work already this week.
…He argues the virus is misunderstood & that the response is now political???
Mike’s need to side with whatever Jacinda is against is now pathological and his latest u-turns and flip flops on the pandemic tend to see him arguing against his own position 24 hours earlier…
Despite being hailed as a source of vital information, Newstalk ZB’s Mike Hosking seems to have used the pandemic to see how fast he can oscillate from opinion to contradictory opinion.
These are the positions the morning talkback host has taken, in chronological order.
If brain eating Aliens invaded Earth, Mike would be the first to welcome our new flesh devouring overlords and offer his services to help enslave the remaining herds of humanity.
Mike’s love language would be forced labour camps.
This Government’s desire to put the health of the people before profit margins is clearly so unknowable to Mike that it seems political to him because that’s the only way he can conceive of saving lives, as a political stunt.
Mike’s criticism of the Government says more about Mike’s limitations than they do about Jacinda’s.
