Tamihere: Who Looks at the Media's Ethics?
Who Looks at the Media's Ethics?
Despite knowing that several allegations screened by TV3 Duncan Garner against me were wrong TV3 proceeded to run the story.
TV3’s producer, Mr Jennings has rushed to the defence of Mr Garner, despite the fact that he approved the hatchet job. Getting Jennings to rush to the aid of Garner is a bit like watching Hitler defend Goebbels. Who watches the media? Garner and Jennings knew that the tax allegation was false. They knew that I was a trustee of my sister’s family trust and did not own the property and they still sent their cameras around to violate my sister, a grandmother bringing up her grandchildren by herself.
Jennings says that Garner says he does not have a private media consultancy business. I say what Jennings says is untrue – that is a fact and Garner knows he is telling porkies again.
I could proceed to list further allegations which under limited journalistic scrutiny would have been found to have been wrong and unworthy. Who watches the Garners and Jennings of this world? Who looks at their ethnics, their standards, their morality?
Garner and his mates at the Waipareira Trust must now know that Rodney Hide will drop them like a hot spud as he has done with his other soul mate, Jim Peron.
Hide stood up in the House and stated unequivocally that ‘Jim Peron is a fine upstanding citizen – he has had dinner at my house and I have had dinner at his house’ I wonder what tricks and treats occurred at these dinners?
