Sex Sells, Dodgy Rooting Ratbags Create Massive Interest

People have said there is no public interest in exposing dodgy politicians rooting as it does not affect their jobs or is private or all sorts of other bullshit reasons.

The problem is that sex sells.

This blog’s traffic has gone through the roof and the server has struggled to keep up with the number of page views.

The Herald, which often refuses to mention this blog as the source of stories, has been selling out double print runs. By 10am on Wednesday it was impossible to get a copy of the Herald in Auckland. I have probably singlehandedly ensured that the NZ Herald at least had one week of profitability this year. 

This points to one thing.

The public love a good scandal especially when it is a dodgy rooting politician getting busted.

Plenty of politicians are rooters, and the public has an insatiable appetite for knowing the details. Commercial reality means that the New Zealand media are going to have an open season on dodgy rooting politicians who can’t stick to solemn vows because it is good for business.

Bring it.
