We may disagree on politics and culture and economics and philosophy and we may argue our causes passionately and we may be blunt, rude and self righteous in the pursuit of that argument, but who the Christ gets off on making fun of something like this?

Joe Moses: “It is shameful that [the PNG] government continues to limit free speech and put such pressure on our country’s only annual arts and human rights event. How does this make us look to the world leaders who will be coming here for the APEC meeting in November?”

By   /  October 11, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  17 Comments

The NZ Herald, The largest daily newspaper in NZ,  is too led by their millennial social media staff who are only focused on the latest micro-aggression policing online fat-shaming, victim-blaming, mother shaming, shaming shaming, too woke to joke comedy shaming outrage or white privilege drenched cutting issues like Koru Lounge Carnage and property speculation porn.

Koru Lounge Carnage Vs Climate Change (welcome to NZ)

By   /  October 11, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  19 Comments
