Publish and Be Damned, TV3!

SOLO-NZ Press Release -
Publish and Be Damned, TV3!

November 12, 2007

TV3 should stop brown-nosing wannabe terrorists like Tame Iti and publish the evidence they claim was leaked to them of the "very disturbing" activities—thus described by the Solicitor-General—in which the wannabes were engaged, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo.

"If they had been handed evidence of a CIA plot to overthrow the dictatorship of Helen Clark (if only!) TV3 would have interrupted even Home and Away to broadcast it, injunction or no. But because this true story involves Mordi-Fascists to whom the Chomskyite lefties at TV3 News and Current Affairs are in thrall, the network meekly and willingly capitulates to an entirely reprehensible Crown Law injunction.

"TV3 should grow some testicles. As I speak, Campbell Live is wittering on about school lunches (not enough lettuce and alfalfa, according to TV3) and Aussie blokes' sexism. This after a timorous patsy interview with Iti speaking in Mordi. This after a news bulletin in which we learned that Melbourne Santas are being instructed not to say "Ho! Ho! Ho!" because it's "demeaning to wimmin" (come back, Aussie blokes, all is forgiven!) and a Maori woman has been killed by her whanau performing a Mordi exorcism on her. This mix of PC and superstition is precisely the sort of life-hating garbage which TV3 and other media routinely patronise and eulogise. Their world is here, and it's disgusting. They are disgusting. Letting us know what their Mordi-Fascist mates were up to would be a useful first step in the direction of redemption," Perigo concludes.
