  • Muse: Guilt By Association Copy,

    I wonder if the fact the he is German and owns a copy of a book by Hitler made it news worthy to @3news. (I'm sure there is more than one politician in NZ who has a copy of that book and many other political biographies)

    Isn't nice that with just a tiny scratch you can reveal New Zealand's racist side

  • Hard News: Bad Judgement,

    Most universities have political clubs for every party and staff are welcome to join 'Princes St Labour' being one of the most famous and they will often use rooms at the university for party meetings.

    There would be hell to pay if this didn't happen, freedom of political expression and all that

  • Hard News: Bad Judgement,

    Paul Henry is an interesting case. On his first show at TV3 he told David Cunliffe he would never vote for him. Cunliffe said he thought he was supposed to be an independent journalist. Henry replied 'what gave you that idea?'

    So Henry has declared his bias and not to many people has an issue with it.

    So it seems to me people have an issue with Shane because he didn't wear his bias like a badge.

    I't couldn't be just about using an an empty room and sending personal emails on work time could it?

  • Hard News: Growing up in public,

    The person yelling ‘she is getting away’ and talking about the excitement was Guy Williams. He was doing his usual rabble rousing stuff which is funny but not when the people he is there to take the piss out of (ie the media scrum) take it seriously.

    He latter apologised for his behaviour on twitter which FWIW seemed genuine

  • Capture: BDO - Post Hoc,

    The Hives frontman had real issues with those balls. He was pretty keen for the crowd view of him not to obstructed (the dude is so rock n roll)

  • Hard News: Crashing the party before it starts,

    I see David Cunliffe has an open invite to a state of the nation event happening soon. I also remember dancing to Che Fu at a part conference some year ago.

    It seems the electoral commission’s policy on treating is related to
    1. how big is your party
    2. how much fun are you likely to have at this event

    It’s not good enough. For many young people going to a concert and hearing the artists speak between songs IS political discourse the commision should stay out of it
