Mosa posted this yesterday afternoon and it was a subject for conversation in Open Mike today. I agree. Excellent article. You''ll never read that quality of thinking in New Zealand's neoliberal media.
We don't know how lucky we are to have Jacinda leading us. Well. may be you and I do....but our own Fox news media and members of the opposition don't.
Thank you mosa. Excellent article. I posted it earlier today and acknowledged your discovery of it the day before.
I would reform the media as a top priority. At present New Zealanders are subjected almost totally to the views of the billionaire class.
Link to the interview. https://www.rnz.co.nz/audio/player?audio_id=2018754179 If ever this government needed a reminder about the parasitical nature of multinational corporations, this brutal action while our economy is weakened by the effects of COVID 19...
Pity the corporate media never airs that view. Instead it trots out the partisan view its sponsors want them to say. The view of the deathcult called neoliberalism. [Fixed error in user name]
And Corin Dann fails to ask any tough questions of their spokesperson. Predictable. [Fixed error in user name]
Mosa posted this excellent al Jazeera article yesterday about how the New Zealand's media's endangered the country's health in conjunction with the Natz. The article is worthy of a post in its own right. Here Glen Johnson describes the far right posturing ...
The World Health Organisation made this short video about New Zealand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLT-XdPRUAA
While the National Party thinks our government's COVID policies are a shambles. The WHO has praised New Zealand's response. What does that tell you about the National Party? "The people & government of #NewZealand, led by @jacindaardern, have shown #...
Interesting. So WHO did give her the information? 'Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust says Michelle Boag 'never' had access to COVID-19 data.' https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2020/07/auckland-rescue-helicopter-trust-says-michelle-boag-never-had-...
Time to enforce a much stricter regime for the quarantine process.
Muller is scheduled for 6:20 https://twitter.com/TheAMShowNZ/status/1280418688462536706/photo/1
You are welcome maui.
The A.M. show on TV3 is now publicising Muller's appearance at 6.20 a.m.
Ironically, she was talking about adversarial politics on the Panel. At around 4.10 p.m. Given what happened an hour and a half later, quite interesting to hear her opine on the matter. In hopefully her last ever platform on national radio.
I thought he was a decisive leader.
At what time in the programme?
Agreed. These words in particular....... "It's heartbreaking trusted powerful people are working so hard to undermine what New Zealand has achieved. They are putting us in great danger." Team of 4,999,998.
Looks like Nikki Kaye is fronting the breakfast T.V. shows tomorrow. 6.55 a.m. on TVNZ. 7.10 a.m. on TV3. Wonder why Todd is not fronting?
Words fail me. So I'll leave it to Dr Siouxsie Wiles "It's horrendous that personal patient information was able to be leaked like this. But Michelle Boag's conduct is utterly despicable. It's heartbreaking trusted powerful people are working so hard to ...
John Wight has written an excellent article about the murder of George Floyd and the recurrent theme of racism in U.S history. Born out of genocide, raised through slavery, the U.S. is an imperialist rogue state. 'Chauvin with his knee on the neck of a ...
Mau is spot on.
Totally agree. Too compromised by his disgraceful smears of Corbyn.
The establishment would never forgive Assange for showing up the true nature of imperialism.
On the same vein. Saw this today for the first time. Hilarious mickey take on the self taught expert on....everything. One of the best ever exposes of Mike Hosking. Enjoy! Mike Hosking Debates Against Himself on COVID-19 Response
The Guardian have picked up on this story as well. In an article entitled 'European schools get ready to reopen despite concern about pupils spreading Covid-19, the writer points to Christian Drosten, 'a virologist and Germany’s leading coronavirus expert'...
It would appear that Boris Johnson and his motley crew are tinkering with the numbers again. First, they did not count COVID deaths in rest homes and at home. Now they are creating magical figures for testing. Donald Trump's U.S is the pits. And Boris ...
Andre, I have not read any reviews yet. However I have ( and I appears you have not) watched 85 minutes of the documentary. I prefer to look at reviews once I have looked at the original document.
Agreed Morrissey, your language is precise. The documentary is "calm, rational, honest, and therefore grim" about capitalism. As a result it is a devastating expose of capitalism.
Watching the film as I type. It is full of data and statistics, supporting points made.
