Newshub Nation Sinks to New Low — The BFD

I was surprised to see Judith Collins on Newshub Nation. I understood that she had decided not to appear because the interviews rarely cover issues important to the viewers.

Are the NZ Media Really Recovering from the Jacinda Effect? — The BFD

I try not to pride myself as a political prognosticator: for all the times I’ve guessed right, I’ve as often been wrong. Fairly early I predicted that Jacinda Ardern’s media lackeys would turn on their fairy princess, just as they did with Australia’s Kevin Rudd. Clearly I was wrong. Or at least, wildly optimistic. But…

The Media Is Lying About Greenland and Climate Change — Watts Up With That?
