NewstalkZB- John MacDonald “fiery” discussion with Judith Collins
Judith Collins appeared in on Newstalk ZB Radio this morning with John MacDonald, an announcer many may not be familiar with as he is apparently filling in for someone else. Listeners have described the interview as “fiery”. In terms of the flaccid presentation of most NZ radio and TV perhaps it was. (listen to audio below)
If you were piqued enough to listen, when you’re used to hearing Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity or Mark Levin or even Leighton Smith, then you might not find it as stimulating as some have. However, its not bad for so politically placid New Zealand.
Mr MacDonald is the kind of unimpressive garden variety progressive that dominates NZ media and he did not want to talk about anything critical to the govt. He was all het up on the usual left or Labour constructed talking points. Those which are purposefully generated as a distraction by Jacinda’s Praetorian Guard media managers when things aren’t going well for her.
Mr MacDonald took up a large part of the interview talking about Ms Collins use of the word “bottled” two weeks ago. A tiresome subject and an attempt to smear Ms Collins with the usual out of context misinterpretation and tinted as always with sinister allegations of racism. Just utterly cringeworthy stuff.
However in the second half of the interview Mr MacDonald, obviously seeing himself as an especially erudite fellow, decided to criticise Ms Collin’s pronunciation of the word “Aotearoa”. Many thought this somewhat rude. Mr MacDonald excused his behaviour on the grounds that Collins is the leader of the opposition and should know how to pronounce the word correctly.
Quite remarkable when there is not one instance of any media personality ever correcting Jacinda Ardern for her frequent mispronunciation of English words. The Prime Minister of New Zealand often says jeprodize instead of jeopardize. She oftens says brought when she should say bought. She pronounces t as a d. For example pardy rather than party.
This all goes by the NZ media, but they apparently think its important to correct Judith Collins on how to say the Maori word Aotearoa?
The intense campaign to humiliate shame and embarrass Judith Collins by Labour’s media shills is just one more example of how badly this country’s democracy is served by these unprofessional bought off fake news charlatans. No wonder they came out so badly thought of in a recent survey.
They don’t know anything about journalism or broadcasting. They only know how to kowtow to progressivism and the Ardern govt and that’s how they retain a large part of their income and their jobs.
