PM's Electorate Chairman to decide political doco fund

The Prime Minister's electorate chairman, Stephen McElrea has been appointed to the NZ on Air board to decide who gets funding for political documentaries about health, education, welfare and law and order.

I wonder how my application for 'National party rich pricks we slavishly love' will be received by NZ On Air now?

Brothers and sisters, isn't allowing John Keys electorate chariman to decide what political documentaries get funding a bit Orwellian?

What documentaries do you think will come out of that board now?

Great things John Key has done for Health?
Gosh John Key is handling corrections well?
Why teachers are wrong and John Key is right?

We need political documentaries that challenge policy not parrot them allowing John Key's electorate chairman to decide the funding for documentaries isn't NZ on air, its political propaganda.

I can understand National's attitude. While they are riding high in the polls they will feel they can do what they want....and nothing anyone says will have any effect.

So they can use that impunity to lock in things to their advantage...and block things that may not be.

Exactly Steve, Orwellian! So if we could somehow get everybody to revise 1984 rather than watch some chewing gum for the brain on the box... oh, that's the catch isn't it, how do we get people to do that.

I hope that the recession does have a motivational effect Bomber, but watching American apathy through this crisis and placing our belief in the American Dream about on par with theirs, I think we'll lie down and take it like good obedient proles.

Starting to be a little obvious now. When will the media start doing their job?

Oh hang on, its all controlled by Steven Joyce and his mates.
