Mandy Hager’s scathing blog post about journalists and the MSM

Mandy Hager is scathing of journalists and amusingly peppers her criticism of people with negative adjectives, while at the same time moaning about bias in the media. Her adjectives mirror the current media’s treatment of individuals smeared by her brother’s book.

Here is a selection from her blog post to prove my point:

  • their disregard for the principles of democracy and freedom as they stomp all over them . . . and us
  • brown-nosing their war-mongering puppet masters in the US
  • the Prime Minister continues to tell his porkies (even when it’s obvious he’s lying)
  • their bullshit ‘investigations’ into abuse of power
  • the horrors of this elitist right-wing agenda
  • toxic MP Judith Collins.

Her views on the media:   

  • And it doesn’t take much to see why he and others who started their careers as well-meaning journalists are sheltering behind snide remarks and lazy reporting.
  • The media has been so corrupted and divided that some of the influential individuals who work within it can no longer be viewed as practising with any kind of impartiality.
  • We can see that those who have tried to question the government and its policies have been disposed of, one by one.
  • This is happening at a time when toxic right-wing luvvie-boys have been put into positions of immense power by broadcasters (yes, I’m talking Hosking and Henry – equally vile, vitriolic little men.
  • They are…self-absorbed, with little genuine concern for their fellow NZers or the ethical health of our current politicians, using the poor young women who have been partnered with them as mindless Barbie dolls…It raises bile just to watch.
  • If we had unbiased newspapers this mightn’t be such a problem – but only the very uninformed could now not know that the majority of our daily papers are owned by huge corporations whose bosses have very clear political preferences…it’s hardly a surprise that they all lean heavily towards the Right. They’re corporations, for goodness sake! Their priority is to make money and to prop up the systems that most benefit the rich.
  • Even Radio NZ, our national broadcaster, does not seem to have an edge on balance. Jim Mora’s ‘Panel’ continues to use commentators who have been outed as mouthpieces for the Right – and their questioning of Government ministers is erratic at best.
  • The attitude taken by Gower and his colleagues, that those of us concerned by media bias and corrupt government are flogging a dead horse – or, worse, are delusional – is the very trap the Government’s PR men have set for them to walk into.
  • that the very people we rely on to tell us what is really going on have fallen as heavily for this PR bullshit as the unquestioning viewing public is disturbing indeed.
