NZ Media- whining hypocritical political harlots
The collective of Jacinda acolytes propagating a coordinated stream of lies to the NZ public about the anti-mandate Freedom Protest don’t really deserve to be called media.
We call them that today only because its a convenient collective term for what is essentially a band of group think deceivers. Fake newsers who all signed on to publish Pravda style govt propaganda the instant they applied for grants from Ardern’s so called “Public Interest Journalism” fund.
Don’t believe this assertion? Here it is from the horse’s mouth, in Jacinda Ardern’s opening speech to Joe Biden’s farcical “Summit on Democracy” only a few weeks ago-
“We’ve also seen the spread of misinformation on Covid-19 particularly through social media. We had to act, so we made it a priority to establish a public interest journalism fund to help our media continue to produce stories that keep New Zealanders informed.”
“Informed” is of course typical Ardern/ Orwellian double speak for “misinformed”. (If you’re still in doubt, the video is at this link.)
Never has this propaganda contract been of more value to the govt as during the media’s reporting on recent anti-mandate protests, and especially so in respect of events on the parliament forecourt on Thursday.
For months before Thursday’s event, the NZ media has done all it can do to discredit anti-mandate protests. Even, as in the instance of the Canadian Truckers “freedom convoy”, conspiring to keep such events hidden from the NZ public by completely refusing to report on them.
Last year, when farming group Groundswell organised massive protests right across the country, media cherry-picked placards and events so as to give a completely false picture of what the protests were really about. After a day or so reports on Groundswell had almost completely dropped out of the news cycle.
So media carried on, refusing to report on protests, and always, when they were finally embarrassed into reporting, making sure it was propaganda that showed the people at the protests in the worse possible light. (even suggesting the protesters were planning to construct Molotov cocktails)
While the immensity of the Canadian Truckers convoy was making headlines on legitimate overseas news services, there was nothing in the NZ news. When a similar convoy started in New Zealand, the mainstream media completely ignored its presence. Only people using social media knew what was happening.
As the convoy traveled through the country, it received enormous support. Still the MSM stubbornly refused to report on it, except for the most cursory mentions. It was only when they reached Wellington and started inconveniencing public servants and politicians that the media was finally forced into reporting it to the rest of NZ.
Since then they have consistently reported on the demonstrations in the worst possible terms, as per their contract with Ms Ardern.
So why are they surprised when the public holds them in contempt? Do they think we’re all as blind and misinformed as the gullible gape jawed morons who still tune into the nightly propaganda sessions they call news?
The political harlots who have commandeered the nation’s news services deserve all the criticism they get, and more. Not only is their reporting selective and biased, they have failed to challenge the govt on so many important issues. Jacinda Ardern daily lies to the public and gets way with it every time because she owns these people lock stock and barrel.
These partisan actors have betrayed their profession and effectively quashed the voice of hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders. They must therefore take a large portion of the responsibility for the Wellington protests, and more importantly, they must bear the anger directed at them. They have earned every bit of it.
It is all the people have left in the fight against the vile cartel of politicians and govt propagandists who have been lying to them every day for two years now.
