Plain news from Canterbury TV

From Canterbury TV (good to see they are still serving Canterbury) the first news report is better than most of the other stuff I see in the TV news about Christchurch. This is what people are telling us (one sent this clip through) in e-mails and comments. Now you can see them.

It is a pity I don’t get this up in Auckland. But I’ll bookmark the youtube page.

    There was an excellent dialogue shown on Maori tv today screening the CTV One on One interview with a representative from Cancern. The straightforward nature of the issues discussed was a stark contrast to the way the ‘authorities’ are handling things.

    Some very good questions were asked, such as;
    : where are the Army and their manpower ?
    : what is being done for the mental health of those most affected?
    : why are ring-route buses not running to assist people to and from the supermarkets, ?
    : where is the support for the aid centers, the volunteers, and the various agency sites that people have to interact with to navigate the mountains of paperwork many are simply not equipped to deal with?
    :apart from essential service workers, why is it the only people who are seen to be actually doing anything are volunteers?
    – many of whom have diminishing resources yet are still turning up everyday to help others

    How long must the survivors of these quakes be forced to endure unreasonable hardship? These damaged and resiliant people that are our family live in a country that is overflowing with support and ideas but strangled by the accountant driven secrecy of Insurance Co’s, Politicians and the never ending desire for profit.

    Bloody hell! How come this kind of stuff is circulating?
    Can these kind of news be allowed to be broadcast under a National Government?
    Gerry should get a law through Parliament to censor this.
    There must be someone to be blamed for putting out things like that.
    Now, listen you all, it is just blindingly obvious that Christchurch is fine.

      Quite right. This kind of reporting will undermine Brownlee’s sense of security and confidence.

      Can’t be allowed.

    But but but I thought if I saw someone present the news without an enormous meaningless psychedelic screensaver swirling in sickening motion behind them, my tiny little mind would wander and I’d have to change the channel.

    Campbell live did another “what do the people think in the suburbs” followed by an interview with the CEO of the EQC. Not sure that the CEO gave any answers other than they were trying very very hard. CEO starts about 10 min in.
