TVNZ happy to leave many rape and rapist allegations on their Facebook page

Apparently that show didn’t meet community standards, and The Rock have to pay a fine.

This is the reaction on the TVNZ Facebook page

Apparently the ones above are OK, because others, like the one below, have now been removed

You can insert your own rant about main stream media, and the fact that blogs now run a better show, and -hey, wait a minute- isn’t TVNZ a taxpayer owned company?

It is remarkable that they will farm the comments off to Facebook, just like Radio New Zealand, and then, somehow, through magic, if you hold your face just right, they aren’t responsible for the content appearing under their company’s mastheads.

    I agree with your last point about farming off comments to Facebook. It is one reason I like Whale Oil. The FB system of comments for any kind of popular discourse is near unworkable. I also dislike the lack of anonymity – which I think is important to avoid the PC nonsense and virtue signalling which otherwise ensues – and that what you say is also advertised to your friends.

      If the Herald/Stuff barred their sick puppies, they would have no comment at all. Some of that stuff must surely cross some line somewhere. I do admire the way John Key’s Facebook page leaves the comments from these people in place as a reminder as to what the alternative is. They are a perpetually renewing warning

    I must say I keep my FB comments completely apolitical even though I am sorely tempted at times. I have friends and acquaintances who I love and admire who occasionally post stuff I disagree with. Including one on particular who I admire tremendously for what he does in the community but is sadly confused in his politics. I see no point in getting into an FB slanging match with them and destroying an otherwise worthwhile relationship.

    Their only fault is their failure to be informed (-;
