Snarky media comment on Key’s trip to Latin America
At Stuff in an article on John Key’s needing to rearrange meetings because of the Chavez funeral, Adam noted this sarcastic comment:-
because Mr Key is cruising around South America in his “own” aircraft – an Air Force 757 – he can afford to be flexible.
Given the schedule and the meetings plus the number of people with him, the RNZAF plane seems logical; presumably the Fairfax ‘journalist’ is on the plane. Furthermore the use of the word cruising implies he is taking it easy and doing little. This does not seem to be the case at all; yet comment so typical of so many in so called ‘media’.
