Surely if Parata has nothing to hide, she has nothing to fear?

    Can’t blame her.
    The media are a pain in the arse, all they do is lie and exaggerate, reporting the facts comes last for these ass hats

    Nice seig heil. The fingers need to be closer together though. Must try harder next time.

    BM – so on your stupid logic, the media all lie and we should just believe the government. Toss. Toss toss

    BM
    You seem very conversant with the media’s failings, has echoes of some of your comments. Any comment to make about that? Or neither confirm or deny.

    I would think this type of approach will be very frequent once Whanau Ora gets under way. Whoever is running it has no reason to have to explain themselves to anybody. Except perhaps with a long-term view in mind, that they want to be on good terms with the pakeha as a matter of a happy, combined society living beside and amongst other ethnicities.

      Not quite sure what you’re on about?

      As for the media, I have no time for the MSM these days.
      Just report the news people, without the spin, without whoevers slant, all I want is the news I can make up my own mind if I like it or not.
      Treat everyone like fucking spoon fed morons.

      Infotainment gives me the shits.

        What are you whinging about. The media are terminally right wing and biased. This should be cause for celebration on your part , surely.

    • Sable 4.2

      They do when public money is involved and they are public figures. This kind of behaviour just shows what a bunch of louts they are.

    Sorry just doing a stir. I feel that you are right about the media in general being too often unreliable or shadow. I didn’t feel sad at losing Paul Holmes or Paul Henry and now I think of it I am right off Paul as a name. Funny how the memory lingers unfavourably.

  6. BM’s attitude will magically change after the 2014 election.

    The media will suddenly morph into heroes, as they hold the new Labour led government to account.

    Perhaps we should run a book on this, a-la iPredict?!

      I like your thinking but will be surprised if Labour and the Greens win. Keys pretty much owns the media in this country and public opinion is shaped by the media. Expect another three years of misery, corruption and human rights abuses.

    People, you are getting hooked again by a Bowel Motion.

    Get back to the thread.

    Is an education hui with the minister a public event? Are we entitled to know what went on? Do ministers get to decide which reporters will be allowed to cover which of their public events? Is the minister our employee or is she free to do whatever she damn well likes and is she free to ignore the the people who pay her salary and give her the title?

    Excuse me. Nature calls. I need to have a BM.

    Hi. I’m back again.

    While away I had a revelation: “If I want to listen to an asshole, I can fart!”

  9. Follow-the-money 9

    Kim Jong Kee would be so proud…

    Just a bunch of expensive clowns.
