It was a weak story - especially for the front page But The AStandard's attack on everybody who run s a wedding venue, is the same sort of bullying we have come to expect from Slater. Despite what fans of the government say, media are allowed to question ...
Sums it up. Question the government and he media should be will be smashed,
Stacey us straight,
Paul Thompson is not a National stooge - he is senior public servant,
clearly I don't speak for the whole media and every editorial priority. I'm just one opinion, mainly commenting on the tendency on this sit o attack journalists. Whale Oil and Trump do the same,
I've said they seem to have underplayed Middlemore Personal opinion.
Very kind of you to point it out. I just worry the way correspondents dislike journalists - and support the State. Media is far from perfect - especially now -- but attacking journalists who disagree with them is not the answer,
I'm just on a different wavelength that Standard contributors. I'd argue I am much more centrist than most of the correspondents here.
MS and OP? I'm new to your abbreviations ;-)
Little has performed well.
That is what good oppositions do. Labour didn't and it lost two elections. They need to be on the front foot. Media don't have to go easy on them because they are still learning the ropes.
I agree - they have underplayed the hospitals story. I'm not defending every editorial judgement, But I don't think it is out of loyalty to National.
I'm a contractor with a fortnightly column.
I responded and suggested you take down the pot you didn't like. Can't see response,
A common theme of correspondents is to call for mainstream media to be held to account - to be challenged and hanged And that media has a a large impact on public opinion I am sure that this is not the editorial policy. I think it the top of opinion that ...
That is populism for you.
Because he was offered a safe seat?
Have you looked at media 40 years ago.?It really was biased to National Now it is populists. Hence Jacindamania. Now things a re going wrong. the coverage is more mixed- though there was still a sycophantic piece in stuff on JA,

I have different values than you. One of them is a free media. its not always that. But Im not rooting for political intervention.

Sorry misread. Beige badger. I write about media. are blogs off limits? Its true - some have criticised me for giving blogs the credibility of comment. I see Whale Oil has a go at being gadgets too ;-0. This is Party faithful backing more oversight of ...
Not really. There is a love affair on this site with brigin the media under control. Trump wants the same.
What is a hedge badger - its a new one on me ;-)
My first job was with State Insurance ;-)
It must b annoying to you that the public still tends to believe mainstream media rather than Party faithful on a website. Are they just fools like the journalists ;-)
... you. Hosking is openly tory. [John can you please have a...
28: 1. ?
I'm a contractor. I'm not employed. The idea of the Herald as the National Party at prayer might have been relevant 30 years ago - but its not now. Its more Right than The Standard - but most New Zealanders are. Look at the election results.
Not really - you wouldn't; know them. I just disagree with party faithful on both sides ;-)
He was formerly a reporter for TVNZ and the Holmes Show. So he was a part of the terrible Right wing conspiracy that The Standard folk find so objectionble. How did he rise in the Labour Party? ;-)
