A message for Shayne Currie and other cowards

Caroline Fourest appears on the U.K. outlet Sky News to discuss the cowardice of UK journalists and editors in not showing the Charlie Hebdo front page.

She expresses her disgust at their cowardice and  then she holds up a copy on live television, and the host obligingly demonstrates Fourest’s point:

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

The weasel words and hypocrisy of the NZ Herald

The NZ Herald has finally published their reasoning for refusing to publish the Charlie Hebdo front cover.

The New Zealand Herald won’t be publishing.

The Herald’s longstanding policy is not to publish imagery designed to cause offence to religious or ethnic communities.

It is not a response to the views of extremists or jihadists, which the Herald of course opposes, but to respect the sensibilities of mainstream believers.

Fairfax publications The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age published the cover late in the day, while Daily Mail Australia opted against running the image, a decision made by its London head office.

Except their excuse is rank hypocrisy.

Exhibit A:

HeraldhypocrisyA

Maybe their policy is more recent than 2010…but they did say longstanding policy…is 5 years longstanding when the Herald has been publishing since 1863. I should have thought that 5 years in a history of 152 year was but a blip, certainly not longstanding.   Read more »

Mark Steyn continues his attack on media via Hannity

Mark Steyn continues to hold the media to account.

Truth Revolt reports:

Fox News Thursday night, Mark Steyn appeared on Hannity to discuss Charlie Hebdo, Islamic terror, and the media, sparing no mercy for the “eunuchs” of the American press and our comedians and satirists. Steyn scoffed at the idea that American press outlets are standing with journalists in France, noting that American papers didn’t reprint the images the Hebdo cartoonists were killed over. Steyn also directly attacked the American impulse to give cover to Islam every time a new terror attack occurs.

The media congratulates itself on its bravery incessantly. And one of the most disgusting things it’s done in the 24 hours since this happened is to maneuver Islam into the victim seat again. Islam always wants to play the victim role.

Steyn addressed the idea that American media are “standing with” or are showing “solidarity” with the journalists suffering and dying in Europe for daring to challenge Islam’s desired authority. He had no patience for the empty pen gesture that was nearly ubiquitous in the last two days. He wondered why the press will not show the cartoons.

I think the pen gesture you just mentioned is pathetic really. I would be more impressed if people were to actually hold up copies of the Charlie Hebdo covers, that those cartoonists died for. They knew the risk that they were taking.

This why the thinnest book in the world is the book of Italian war heroes

rome-police-2.si

Oh those Italians, they make the best rifles – never been fired and only dropped once.   And it seems this genetic propensity that besets them is still going strong.

Some 83.5 percent of Rome’s police scheduled to work on New Year’s Eve called in sick. Italian authorities are threatening disciplinary actions against those officers who never showed up as some 600,000 people welcomed 2015 on the streets of the capital. Read more »

Cowardly Cunliffe caught in another lie

David Cunliffe is too scared to debate John Key and so went after the ref instead in labour’s continuing war against the media.

War on the media is the last resort of losers and so it is that Labour and their proxies are now building dossiers against media people that they hate.

But David Cunliffe has been caught in another lie.

He like to talk tough, descriptions of “game on”, bring the battle to Key”, “The War room”, Labour being on a “war footing”.

Unfortunately his tough talking rhetoric is backed only with cowardy, cowardy, custard.

Listen to him from a couple of months back talk the big game with Tim Fookes.  Read more »

Why is it, that when children get hurt in New Zealand, we can never find an adult that will take responsibility?
