NZ Election – The Media (1)

24/09/2017

To Adam’s mind much of the media coverage of the election was really poor.

Many in the media seemed to be more concerned with promoting their preferred candidates. The pretension of objectivity went out the window very early.

Broadcast and print media were all culpable in this regard.

Furthermore, we saw yet again attempts to influence the election by some complaining about choices of moderator.

There is a very thin veneer to freedom of speech and thought in NZ, as elsewhere.
