"This is Helengrad Calling"

"This is Helengrad Calling"

"While you wait for surgery, you may rest assured that tax dollars stolen from you are being spent on politically-correct, braindead state broadcasting - and braindead broadcasting is here to stay (and grow) under Helen Clark," observed Libertarianz Leader and Tauranga Candidate Russell Watkins today.

"Helen Clark's is fascist-like in her adherence to the notion that all New Zealanders must be unified under a single cultural identity," says Watkins. "Clark promotes the myth that there is something healthy about watching tax-victim funded politically correct brainwashing on state controlled TV - as if forcibly funded state broadcasting was somehow neutral!"

Watkins sugggests Clark has "succumbed to the wining and dining of the chardonnay socialist film-production and music-recording industries." He says that both industries are "as eager to extract stolen tax dollars from the public as they are unable to extract those dollars from the public willingly - rather than earn their living honestly they would rather the taxman keep them afloat."

It is time, he says, that broadcasting was completely removed from the sphere of the state and simply set free to surive or die on its own merits. "Libertarianz would eliminate all state involvement in broadcasting, and let broadcasters use whatever mediums they could gain property rights in, to broadcast whatever they wished." he concluded.

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz !

Joseph Cederwall: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

... and the dawn of something much better?
2019 looks like it might well be another really bad, terrible, not so good year for the traditional journalism model globally. Already in January three leading US digital outlets—BuzzFeed, the Huffington Post, and Vice announced layoffs that have left many accomplished journalists unemployed. Consolidation of journalism looks set to continue unabated as larger (sharky) media conglomerates swallow up smaller players globally. We also appear to be witnessing the death throes of the concept of ‘objective’ truth in journalism. However, perhaps that is not at all as bad as it sounds, and we are just finally waking up to the reality that it never really existed in the first place... More>>


Environment: Government To End Tenure Review

“Tenure review has resulted in parcels of land being added to the conservation estate, but it has also resulted in more intensive farming and subdivision on the 353,000 ha of land which has been freeholded.

Waitangi Day: Nationwide Events Commemorate Treaty Signing

“From large-scale events attracting tens of thousands of people such as those at Hoani Waititi Marae in Auckland and the Porirua Waterfront, to smaller gatherings in areas as far flung as the Chatham Islands and to the significant commemorations at Waitangi, these events are an opportunity for us to reflect on the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.” More>>
