SaveMart shows why unions are vital for New Zealand

Written By: - Date published: 2:02 pm, September 27th, 2017 - 47 comments

SaveMart employees were made to sort bales of filthy clothing dumped in Child Cancer charity bins without safety gloves. Unionized workers at New Lynn were sacked for contacting their union about it. Why did it require so much public pressure to get them reinstated? Why are our laws so inadequete?

Alfred Ngaro has told a National Conference that critics of the Government can expect to lose Government support for proposed contracts.  And that Labour prompted concern about families living in cars.

Some random musings on what happened in New Zealand’s media this year.

Welcome returns

Great to see two much needed voices back on line, Dita de Boni now writing for TVNZ, and John Campbell doing what he does best for RNZ. (Update with Andrea Vance’s more to TVNZ).

How bloody marvellous

Good news.  Radio New Zealand is going to become way more impressive …

Kia kaha Mihingarangi Forbes

Written By: - Date published: 7:39 am, June 5th, 2015 - 29 comments

Mihingarangi Forbes resigned yesterday as a reporter for Marae Televison apparently because of managerial interference in a story she intended to run.  In the week since Aotearoa lost Campbell Lives it has now lost arguably the best investigative reporter that the country has.

Stewart’s brilliant account of the significance of Campbell Live

Rachel Stewart’s piece should be required reading for anyone who cares about New Zealand.

RIP Campbell Live

Campbell Live plays for the last time tonight.  With New Zealand on Air having new targets that will make support for similar shows unlikely the holding of the powerful to account is about to become more difficult.

Campbell Live Dumped

John Campbell has quit TV3. Campbell Live is dead.

Campbell live to go and a second hair incident

Interestingly two stories have broken during the presentation of the Budget.  John Campbell has quit TV3 and a further hair incident involving John Key has hit the news.

Henry ratings tank while Campbell ratings soar

Despite being heavily advertised Paul Henry’s show’s viewer numbers are small while viewer numbers of Campbell Live have surged.

Let Campbell Live entertain you

John Campbell is engaged in the most marvellous fightback in trying to save Campbell Live.  But you have to wonder why he is not on a State Channel with robust protection for quality journalism.

Save Campbell Live!

It looks like NZ’s last outlet for daily TV investigative journalism is going to be axed. TV3’s owners, Mediaworks, are going to focus all their resources into propping up the odious Paul Henry’s breakfast show. The bad taste jokes don’t end there, though. Campbell Live is going to be replaced with a comedy show. No, really. Updated with links to petitions.

A clear Cunliffe win

David Cunliffe’s performance in tonight’s head-to-head with John Key was exactly what I wanted to see from the next Labour Prime Minister of NZ.

In search of Pansy’s legacy

Written By: - Date published: 1:30 pm, December 8th, 2010 - 29 comments

In the Herald yesterday, there was a half-page ad thanking Pansy Wong for her “significant contribution” to National’s coffers the country. John Campbell went in hunt of that contribution. Worth watching all the way through for Duncan Garner’s assessment. As a bonus, Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi gets his first media mention that isn’t about corruption.

Asking the second question

Written By: - Date published: 11:24 am, May 24th, 2008 - 62 comments

Key’s best trick is to answer questions with impressive or technical sounding assertions that stop the line of questioning but don’t actually tell us anything. When he does that, interviewers need to push him to explain himself. Here’s a few paraphrased examples from the last couple of week: Q. ‘What don’t you like about the […]
