MEDIAWATCH: How politically shallow is RNZ? Take David Seymour vs Willie Jackson coverage

I think it’s hilarious that the woke NZ journalists are more angry at Willie calling David a ‘useless Māori’ than the abomination of horror that David’s policies would cause! –

The woke journalists are only interested in micro aggression policing identity rather than the far right the nuclear explosion that Seymour’s mutilation of the State would create!

Corin Dann’s breathless exclamation to Willie on Morning Report that he’d called David a ‘useless Māori’ was bigger an issue to Corrin than the monstrosity of damage David was gleefully promising and that’s because all NZ journalists are in the thrall of woke activists on Twitter which creates a Stockholm syndrome editorial style where the minutia of middle class intersectionist etiquette trumps all other issues.

Effectively the political commentary on Radio NZ is determined by what would make Corrin Dann blush at a Wellington dinner party.

As The Daily Blog has been pointing out since the election, the extreme hard right policy of ACT is simply not appreciated by the majority of kiwis.

But it’s there, oh sweet Jesus is it there.

That’s just the start…

  • Cut and freeze the Minimum wage
  • Interest back on all student loans
  • No Kiwsaver subsidy
  • Cancel winter energy payment
  • Dump all climate crisis legislation
  • no more best start payments for families with new borns
  • cut welfare payments
  • no tax credits for research and development
  • cuts to working for families
  • $7b a year cut in public services
  • Abolish Maori seats

This is Romper Stomper Hard Right insanity that makes Qanon look reasonable and because there is no way National can win without ACT, every vote to National empowers ACT.

While TDB has been pointing out that the Wellington Bureaucracy certainly do control policy and have far too much influence for their own self interest, we argue conquering that requires a plan to use tasers on their most sensitive areas to advance a left wing economic policy platform. It doesn’t require taking a chainsaw to the entire capacity of the State and calling that blunt force trauma amputation surgical!

David is throwing the baby, the bath, the little plastic toys, the soap and the entire toilet out with the bathwater.

David wants to hand on heart be able to tell Satan that he did all he could to mutilate the State yet Corrin Dann is more concerned that calling someone a ‘useless Māori’, might continue the patriarchal colonists racist narrative that Māori are useless.

Middle Class Identity politics and all the micro aggression policing cancel culture nonsense that comes along with it does nothing to enlighten the public.
