Join the Kim Dotgone movement. Now is the hour.

When you saw the headline, was your first reaction “Oh no, not another story about that”?  If so, read on…

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Sir Paul Holmes isn’t so flash.  In his limited time that remains, I suspect he has a small bucket list to work through, as far as his failing health will allow him.

So paint me stunned when he and his family hosts the Jolly Fat German that is a one-man PR nightmare blight on this country’s psyche.  Overseas, they’re laughing at us.

Of course, we’re at fault.  We, being the media.  We, being the consumers of media.

But where I was once a lone voice, the Kim Dotgone movement is slowly growing


As I’ve said right from the start, this Fat King has no clothes.  I’ve been a lone voice in a sea of magpie-like fascination with shiny things calling for the Dotgone media oxygen tap to be turned off. No attention, no free publicity.

A Soundbite A Day Keeps Critisism At Bay

He continues to get a huge amount of  non-critical media attention span.

Let me spell it out for you:

He is after our money.

Dotcon has a track record of failure.  His Mega launch was a joke by any launch standards (repackaged: unprecedented demand), he has manipulated, he has lied, he has defrauded.  Don’t misunderstand that he is hiding in this country.  He’s no longer welcome in Europe and the USA only wants him to put him in a small concrete box.

Being a reader of this blog, you’ve heard it all before.

NBR, shame on you.

“NBR Staff” and the other parasites like David Fisher, are the people who lack the energy to go and find some stories they can call their own.  People like that lack the imagination to understand they are being used.

Churnalist, repeaters and PR Release publishers.   So-called Journos.

Come on MSM, you finally managed it with Winston Raymond Peters.  You finally did it:  you aren’t breathlessly lazily impulsively publishing every word, breath and bowel movement any longer.

It’s time you do the same for Kim Dotgone.

I’ll leave you with this.  Truth or piss take?

    I am sorry that Paul Holmes has terminal cancer but I am getting fed up with the media pandering to his narcississ tendencies. We have had a mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa confession on TV and then the ptress then a visit covered by the press of Kim what’s is name.
    I assume that when PH shuffles off this mortal coil we will get him on tv interviewing St Peter at the Pearly Gates who will storm off in a huff.
    WO’s Mum died recently from cancer and my wife 4 1/2 years ago and they suffered with dignity and respect. Why do we have to put up with PH playing it to the media.

    • 4077th

      Well put and well said CC. I thought that when I watched the interview and
      I couldn’t help but be reminded of how his knighthood came about….(might as well ask for one if I will not be offered one through the usual means). The above said PH is a kiwi icon unlike Dot Con who is an I-Conn.

      • ConwayCaptain

        I dont think he is a NZ Icon. Like all these news “stars” They were pushed by the TVNZ advertising machine. When he left for Prime v few followed him and his show was a flop. At one time in TVNZ he threatened to go to Aus, why didnt he?? He knew he would be a flop just like that TWERP Paul Henry was.

        • Lion_ess

          What works well in New Zealand does not automatically translate across the Tasman – ask The Warehouse. Neither Prime in New Zealand, nor Channel 10 in Australia had any audience following in the time-slots Holmes and Henry went across to occupy. Referring to Holmes and Henry as “flops” is sad on your part. There is a difference in taking over a highly rated time-slot and bombing (presenter is a flop), and taking on a non-rating time-slot and being unable to switch audience viewing habits.

        • unsol

          Nah Paul Henry is a crack up – he doesnt take himself too seriously (unlike Mr Ego) so how anyone else can is beyond me.

          Those moments on breakfast were priceless – ridiculous how the Dikshit issue became an international incident. He was right to poke fun & her name was awfully ironic given she was meant to be in charge of the over flowing sewage re the games & was fail. Re the GG – it was a fair question. He is an Fiji-Indian man his 60s so it easy to assume he was not born here. That said, the comment was definitely a case of foot & mouth & was risky to point of guaranteeing to insult. But was not worth the scandal it became though….example of PC gone mad I think.

        • Moaning Greasy Flyblow

          Come on captain, the man is rooted. Show some compassion, there’s a time and a place

      • Lion_ess

        I watched the Holmes interview as well. Irrespective of how his knighthood came about, I thought he was very brave to come on camera and be filmed in not such a flash state. He offered honest comment on the topic of his own demise and given his background of reporting on the highs and lows of other peoples lives, he demonstrated he was no hypocrite. Good on him, I thought.

    • AnonWgtn

      No sure who instigated the meeting – Dotcon I expect, as he happened to be in his helicopter, which accidentallly landed closee by ?

      • ConwayCaptain

        No KD flew down especially

    • unsol

      My thoughts exactly CC – cancer doesnt make dickheads & assholes any more decent & to use your terminally ill status as yet another opportunity to fuel your ever inflating ego is the epitome of narcissism.

      Re the big meet – interesting that two high profile narcissists want to meet……I would have assumed that their egos wouldn’t be able to handle the competition!

      Oh and why did PH get a knighthood? What exactly has he contributed other than ego fueled sensationalism void of all the facts?

      Very sorry that your lost wife to cancer, after have lost a few friends to it I can only imagine what it must be like to lose your spouse.

      • ConwayCaptain


        • unsol

          Oh how terrible. Like any cancer, breast cancer is such an awful, insidious disease with no rhyme or reason. I had a friend who passed away with it after 4 year NED leaving behind a baby girl. Just so devastating. And to have watched your wife deteriorate in such a way must have been horrendous & no doubt something that remains close to your heart – along with the good memories, for the rest of your life.

          Yes the home help ladies are amazing, as are the good people at the various hospices around NZ. It is so odd how those that do the things that matter most in life (physical caring of others) get paid stuff all – from nurses to caregivers in rest homes, to foster parents, home help & hospice workers. It takes a skill & level of empathy & emotional maturity that few seem to possess these days.

  • Patrick

    Hill-Cone likes to portray herself as an intelligent thinking person, for the life of me I cannot see why anyone would be “following” DotCom, apart from the “feds” that is.

  • williamabong

    Take the fat prick to the airport and send him to the US, one way, we don’t need or want him here, he’s a convicted criminal and we already have a full quota of these.

    Just another John Key flip plop, hell even give Banks and Fisher the chance to carry his bags for him, after all both of them have no problem singing into the microphone hanging out the fat krauts zipper.

  • thor42

    **Please**, WO – ***no more articles about Kim Dot Com.***

    • Someone has to balance the ledger against a clearly bias media

    • Agent BallSack

      Disagree. The more we expose him to the light the more the blinkers come off.

    • thor42

      I can see where you’re coming from, but in this case (IMO) the media can be as biased as they want.
      It’s like being biased for/against a dung-beetle.
      ***I don’t think anyone cares.***

    • Greg

      The pressure has to continue………

  • Even if Dotcom was invited to see Sir Paul as has been indicated, the family is asking for privacy in his last days. Someone should have told them that Kim Dotcom doesn’t do privacy; his ego is far too large for that.

    Here’s hoping that this is the tipping point that shows people that Dotcom is only interested in what is good for Dotcom, and that he will even use a visit to a seriously ill and dying man as an excuse to get his picture published. Notice too how he managed to get the helicopter in the picture…

    • He is a cynical fat german twat. a liar and a thief who is supplying tools to rip off artist, including NZ artists. Disgusting he used Sir Paul in this manner. This is what should be reported.

  • tarkwin

    It’s like watching a really fat meteorite burning bright just before it hits the ground. All it will leave is a small crater full of adoring fans with burnt fingers.

  • Gazzaw

    ZB is reporting Dotcon’s visit to Holmes as unexpected so maybe the finger should not be pointed at Paul Holmes without further checking.

  • Tristanb

    It might help if you didn’t post about him twice a day!

  • AnonWgtn

    Am very concerned that the new Dotcon file sharing site is so heavily encripted (Secure to any user) that in a few days it will become, if it has not already, the world’s prime site for such as KiddyPorn.
    Only those in the syndicates will give each other the ability to unencript each site when required.
    It is said that Dotcon does not know what is in a secure site either, and has no way of finding out.
    I find this dangerous in the extreme, that New Zealand is/will be seen as the ugly receptacle of such sites.

    • Tristanb

      So your solution is to not allow people to use encryption? Great stuff. Maybe government-run cameras in every home to stop people molesting kids too? Maybe daily inspections and searches of houses for illegal material? I hear that houses in Austria often have hidden bunkers – look at what Fritzl did! Maybe a geological survey of hidden rooms should be done?

      Your line of reasoning is called the “think of the children” response. It is stupid.

      Learn to spell too.

    • stinkeye3

      Oh yeah, because uploading to a big site like that instead of hard to trace small servers is a great idea!

    • Azeraph

      Yeah bud, you have a right to be concerned but kiddyporners wouldn’t go near him knowing he’s been taken once but in saying so the people pushing net governance will soon be using what you have stated and terrorism as a launch push for control of the free net. Porn,Kiddy Porn, Islamic ideology and terrorism, trolling and apparently Nz’s insatiable thirst for copied movies. When everyone feels secure that they have done a “Moral” thing by electing net governance you will see something called a passport issued to you and every detail of your life will be on it and you won’t be allowed to view sites from different countries. Proponents will use words like “Our enemies” “Terrorism” “Copy right theft” or famously “If you don’t want to disclose you have something to hide” Psychological fearism and it’s contagious.

      The multinationals want control of the net, They got the planets money and now they got the countries in their back pockets as well, one just has to look at the TPP and it’s wording to know that it’s got nothing to do with another countries market protections.

      I will leave with this.

      People have more constructive conversations under a pseudonym, not their real names.

    • Mr_Blobby

      What planet are you from, you stupid (bureaucrat) Muppet. Planet Wellington? There are many reasons why people would want to keep there private information private. The worst offenders are Government spy agencies. More than a few countries banned blackberries, because they couldn’t get access to the encryption key to monitor there nationals phone calls. The same will happen here, although I would be surprised if the US spy agencies haven’t already cracked Mega.

  • Greg

    PISS OFF Dotcon and leave Paul alone.

  • Mr_Blobby

    Honestlywho gives a shit who Dotcom visits.

  • Shay Collings

    The issue Dotcom is pushing is a very valid one that needed to come to media attention. He is, undoubtably the worst poster child for it. Such is life.

    This is Cameron much the same as your fight over name suppression laws. A very legitimate issue but clearly approached in the wrong manner.

    On that matter before you go calling him DotCon you may want to remember that you have more of a criminal record in this country than he does. The man is an megalomaniac, but he is one of many. At the end of the day if we do (and I’m not saying we will) get an extra underwater cable from the mans work, then f*** me, put him on the front page daily.

  • Lion_ess

    Why the fuck would anyone want to follow Kim Dotcom on Twitter anyway? And seriously, she needed to tweet that she’d unfollowed him? I’m sure Twitter is an application we could well do without.
