Tim Beveridge – white man sings the blues

By   /  August 13, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  3 Comments

I don’t know Tim Beveridge from a bar of soap, he’s a ZB host and I never listen to ZB.

But I do read the columns he writes for the NZ Herald which are filled with the sort of pompous self inflated sense of privilege that anyone hosting a show on ZB seems to be infested with.

His latest column however is so cringe worthy in its ‘why can’t white men get a break’ narrative it just would be wrong to not deeply mock it…

By   /  August 9, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  50 Comments

The vast majority of Labour’s gain is at the expense of NZ First and the Greens, Jacinda was only able to pull .8% away from National, and that should be a major worry.

Waatea News Column – One of the most soul destroying parts of being inside Labour is watching focus groups.

By   /  August 9, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

Labour’s collapse in the Polls has gifted them a Leader who can finally explain policy in a way that resonates and is listened to, this changes the dynamic and also makes National’s next attack line, which has moved from bad leadership to bad policy, far more of a difficult trick to pull off because when it comes to policy, Labour’s are light years ahead of National.

Rich, white, male broadcasters hating on Metiria again

By   /  August 8, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  56 Comments

…I’m not sure what angers Patrick, Garner, Espiner, Hosking, Soper or Armstrong most, that Metiria has highlighted the cruelty of our welfare system and empowered beneficiaries or that the Greens went up despite all orgy of sexist hate they spat at Metiria.

I don’t care if Jacinda has a child while being Prime Minister.

I care what she will do for the 41 000 homeless, the 305 000 kids in poverty, the 550 000 NZers enduring extreme hardship, the 1600 NZers who die from the cold each year, the 1500 unofficial deaths from suicide, the 10 000 in prison and the generations locked out of home ownership.
