Stuff readers disagree with Stuff stance

He is not really Hitler of course (we apologise for the left-wing-style label), but you get the joke, don’t you Stuff?

As has been well publicised here, here, herehere, here, here and here the Stuff and Nonsense editorial team led by Patrick Crewdson have decided that they know best, they are right and anybody who does not agree with them is banned from saying so.  (Isn’t freedom of speech a wonderful thing?)

Stuff and Nonsense have bought into the lie that “the science is settled”, anthropomorphic global warming is a thing, CO2 is evil and the IPCC is the source of all truth.

However, in a surprising opinion piece, Damien Grant ventured to suggest that the Greens may be heading in the wrong direction.  He cleverly got this piece past the Stuff and Nonsense censors by stating. “It leaves people like me, who believe in anthropomorphic [sic] global warming …”, thus making him an acceptable ‘good guy’.

However, Damien went on to lambaste the Greens’ approach and policy. Quote.

They don’t give a STUFF about facts and balance

STUFF – Stifles Truth Using False Fables

Following on from the excellent article about Stuff not being a free speech site any longer (if it ever was) it is appropriate to have a look at their stance.

The Stuff article says: Quote.

This project accepts a statement that shouldn’t be controversial but somehow still is: climate change is real and caused by human activity. End quote.

Stuff editor, Patrick Crewdson said. Quote.

Our position on the points you’ve raised is simple:

1. We accept the overwhelming scientific consensus – as represented by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – that climate change is real and caused by human activity. In that light, providing ‘balance’ from denialists is not a poor service to our audience – it is actively dangerous. This is not a true debate with two equivalent sides, where the views of the scientific consensus and denialists are of equal weight. end quote.

A quick look at the IPCC Charter document in Annex 7, “PRINCIPLES GOVERNING IPCC WORK” shows that the IPCC is specifically tasked with looking at human-induced climate change. Quote.

Stuff says Muslims are an ethnic group and being well informed is bad

Stuff, have reported on a study and their reporting and the study itself are both ludicrous.

They also felt more anger and less warmth towards Muslims than they did towards other ethnic groups, such as Asians, Arabs, Pakeha and Maori.

I hate to break this blatantly obvious fact to the journalist who wrote this article but Muslims are Arabs and Asians and Pakeha and Maori and every other ethnic group under the sun because they are not an ethnic group or a race but are in fact individuals with an ideology in common. Islam is simply a set of beliefs. Communists are not an ethnic group and neither are Christians. Someone please take the reporter outside and shake some common sense into them.

Spock’s selection: It’s news Jim but not as we know it

I have scanned the Stuff and New Zealand Herald websites to find examples of news headlines that are more suited to a women’s weekly magazine than a serious MSM News outlet.

New Zealand MSM are making a big mistake handing their customers to Facebook

After praising The New Zealand Herald for their balanced coverage of Resolution 2334 in a post I wrote yesterday and published this morning, I decided to view the comments on all the articles that I had referred to in my post. The New Zealand Herald like Stuff have handed their comment sections over to Facebook which has many downsides as I was soon to find out.

The first problem I encountered my total inability to find the article I was looking for on their Facebook page. I was looking for the article titled, “Rob Berg: NZ Government stance on Israel smacks of hypocrisy” which was published that day but all I could find on their page was stories like…

Fake News on Stuff

whaleoil.co.nz

I read Stuff because it is better than the NZ Herald but today I read an article about Milo Yiannopoulos and I was disgusted to see that they had published a blatant lie about him. I guess that I shouldn’t be surprised since left-wing media outlets all over have written lies about both him and Steve Bannon, his ex-boss from Breitbart. Breitbart, of course, has had incredible growth and are expanding. They have taken on old media and are winning so that may be why the MSM is so keen to publish lies about anyone connected to their competition.

The article in question is about a book that Milo has written. I have already pre-ordered it myself and it is already a best seller on Amazon even though it hasn’t been released yet.

If we judged what was important by NZ Media news stories

Some people seem to think that if the New Zealand mainstream media are not particularly interested in a news story then it can’t be very important. I propose the opposite point of view. If the NZ media are covering it then it probably isn’t very important because much of our media has more in common with a women’s weekly magazine than they do with a serious newspaper.

These days it is often the new media outlets like Breitbart and The Rebel Media who do in-depth analysis and coverage of worldwide events. To prove my point let’s compare some of yesterday’s headlines.

The New Zealand Herald headlines and videos:

Unbelievably racist headlines on Stuff today

What would a lefty, social Justice bully snowflake say if Stuff ran this headline do you think?

“Just another brown man in a suit “

I suggest that they would be typing away on their custom keyboard below in outrage yet Stuff thought it was quite acceptable to racially profile our new Prime Minister and to belittle him for his skin colour.
