Media today will never support freedom protesters

“Hold the line” is an important aphorism of the Freedom Protesters in Wellington, and bless them and their courage for this resolution, but they should not forget another aphorism of similar importance and that is “stay the course”. Recent moves to alter their original stance and offer olive branches to a deceitful media that has pilloried the protesters from the

Complaints about Freedom Protests reek of hypocrisy

On Friday almost 30 Wellington so called ‘leaders” issued an open letter to the Freedom Protesters at parliament house asking them to end their “illegal” protest. The opening sentence of the letter reads We the undersigned ask that the current illegal protest activities in and around the Parliament precinct end immediately.  and it ends with this statement- The people of

Ardern should resign over NSS abuse of power

We all laughed at Ardern’s opening shot in the propaganda war to discredit the freedom protests. She claimed they were “imported”. Its true in a way. New Zealand is joining the rest of the world, in tearing down the wall of lies that “progressive” governments across the globe have built around truth. That wall is about to crumble just as

Suddenly the left don’t like protests

Its an “unlawful” protest scream the left. “Shut it down!” Pretty much as the Stasi and its supporters screamed in East Germany as crowds formed to tear down the Berlin wall. (1989) Leaving aside the left’s sudden onset of selective morality, its notable that protests against tyrannical govts seldom fit with what those govts would describe as lawful. Tiananmen square

Luxon repeats Jacinda Ardern’s false narratives

Canada’s opposition Conservative party has come out strongly in support of the protesting truckers, and entered a motion into parliament to end Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandates. If you were expecting the NZ National party to show similar courage and political acumen, you’re right out of luck. Chris Luxon held a press conference this afternoon where his rhetoric on the protesters

ACT lives up to its yellow logo

Eureka! Apparently David Seymour has suddenly discovered there are sources of information outside NZ’s mainstream media. The goofy ACT leader issued a press release today that included the following paragraph- “Evidence from the UK is now showing tested infection rates twice as high for vaccinated as unvaccinated. If vaccination does not affect transmission of Omicron, then what is the justification

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

The Speech David Seymour should have made

Its not fair or accurate to say that the Association of Consumers and Taxpayers (ACT) is a complete waste of everyone’s time. They do have some good ideas and in spite of their wokeism, they also have some of the best people in parliament. (not saying much) ACT’s problem is their inconsistency in that they shy away from matters they

A Warning for Christopher Luxon

Events in Canadian politics last week have delivered a message to the New Zealand National party and they should heed it well. Opposition party leader Erin O’Toole lost this job when the Conservatives finally worked out he was not the “True Blue Conservative” he had made himself out to be, but a weak liberal imposter. The Canadian opposition is not

NZ media finally reports on Canadian Truckers’ protest- with vile cowardly smears

Two days ago a NZ MSM employee tweeted her dissatisfaction at the NZ public’s criticism of journalists. Responses to this complaint were numerous, and in many instances they referred to the media’s failure to report on the huge and momentous Canadian truckers’ protest against Covid19 vaccination mandates. Perhaps these complaints (along with so many others on blogs and social media)

TV One silent on Canadian trucker protest- stark example of pro-government bias

The New Zealand media is a confederation of left wing liars. TV One’s failure to report on anti-mandate protests by Canadian truckers is the most stark example of this dishonesty. It illustrates media’s willingness to manipulate to the advantage of the Ardern govt those NZ citizens who still inexplicably trust them. Way back in September 2020 Labour supporting Otago University

Deeply politicised police a danger to democracy

News that the BFD blog and its customers and commenters are under police “surveillance” should not come as a surprise. Like most of our public institutions, Police in NZ have been politicized for some time, but especially so since “Cuddles” Coster became Commissioner. As many have already pointed out, the issue here is not the BFD. The police documents released

In 1944, Patrick Gower would have narked on Anne Frank

A core principle of journalism is a willingness to protect the weak from the powerful, and to always hold those in power to account. When journalists start working for the powerful, they forfeit their right to be called such, and are no longer part of that profession. They become propagandists. Unfortunately, most journalists today fall into this category. At the

Christopher Luxon’s false dawn

National die-hards are flat out cheering for their “renewed” party, and who can blame them? Of course Christopher Luxon would make a “better” PM than Jacinda Ardern. Of course National would form a “better” government than Labour. However the reality is National has been taken over by a group of politically naïve liberals, (with the possible exception of Simon Bridges)

Update to New Zealand media’s vile attacks on anti-mandate lock-down protestors

More shocking examples of the NZ media’s political corruption and innate bias. One from Stuff’s “Chief Political Reporter” Henry Cooke and another from the editorial writer at the Otago Daily Times. The current editor at the newspaper is Barry Stewart. If there were any mature and responsible people in charge, both of these media people would be fired for such

Wrong again Mr Hooton

In a paywalled article in Saturday’s NZ Herald, left liberal political commenter Matthew Hooton calls for Christopher Luxon to act now in securing the leadership of the National Party. Thankfully, the tepid reaction to Mr Hooton’s article suggests no one is reading news and opinion from that source. That the far left groupthink NZ media has been telling us for
