Hi Cam and team,
Sorry if this is a bit ranty but the Latta programme was such a stitch up, I woke up at 4:30 am this morning and couldnâ€™t get back to sleep.Â His claim to sort out facts from spin is nonsense, as his programme was complete spin and very far from factual.
LattaÂ has completely lost the plot, either that, or been seduced by funding for another series by TVNZ and co-opted by those he did his research with and been blinded by their [redacted]Â His programme was nothing more than socialist propaganda with lots of edited together shots of the extreme ends of the economy, interviews with a ‘struggling middle class family and working poor, plus struggling uni graduate, interviews with commentators (all of whom are already singing from the same socialist song sheet) plus an interview with the Head of Treasury for ‘balance’.
You know when he started with the comment, something like “I’m not here to attack any political party” and later on the Salvation Army guy said a similar thing about governments, that you knew that’s what they in fact were doing anyway.
I’m not surprised that Roger Douglas refused to front – having careful edited sound bites to suit the political agenda of the programme? No way!!
