The Nation and q+a review
They have climate denying nutter mad Lord Monckton on. WTF?
Watching a show as right wing as The Nation attempt to explain the failures of the free market meltdown is hilarious, it's like watching a panel of lepers attempting to judge a beauty contest. What the hell do these clowns at The Nation know? They've been championing the free market since the beginning and are attempting to explain the meltdown of their ideology now?
Like so man NZers, why do I bother watching this? Seeing as Rupert Murdoch is eyeing up buying TV3, how more right wing can the network go?, turns out the $43 million Steven Joyce lent the company he used to own against MOE advice to pay for Paul Henry to join radio Live! wasn't enough to keep Mediaworks from collapse. Watching The Nation you can see why. Will we get our $43 million back now?
China is on explaining why NZ shouldn't fear becoming the new Tibet of the South Pacific. The Nation obliges in a piece so uncritical I wonder if the embassy edited it first. What about the artists and bloggers you lock up China? No word on that? No questions on that?
Of course not.
When is Futurama on Comedy Central?
Now they have some economists on, seeing as this is a crises of capitalism akin to the 1929 collapse, this is all outside their paradigms. That is why they all look so confused.
Having the mad climate denying monk on is the intellectual equivalent of having a Holocaust denier on. A new low even for The Nation.
I'm watching Futurama. The Nation is a joke. Not a very funny joke. A pretty dumb, stupid one. Listening to Sean lie about supposed climate gate bullshit is beneath our collective intelligence.
Thank god Comedy Central have Family Guy following Futurama.
This just can't get funding from NZ on Air next year with ratings like this can it?
If I want to know what The Nation thinks, I can just read the Herald or John Key's facebook page or National Party press releases. Can't wait till Rupert owns it, maybe Sean and Duncan will get replaced by Michael Laws and Paul Henry?
Seriously Richard, at least make the panel interesting, make Chris Trotter and Matt Nippet permanent regulars, if you can't make current affairs at least interesting via a panel of people with strong opinions, if it is just this dry dusty version, you could actually drop below what Citizen A rates, then how will you feel?
They are debating the price of Milk? In the week the economy melted down and the US were credit downgraded? How blinkered, sounds like the dull stuff pundit.co.nz bores us with.
The terribly safe Pagani is on with Katherin Rich and Jon Johanson.
Opening monologue is off and running. Goffs argument with Tucker is debated, they believe Goff, Keys letterman appearance is lauged at.
Milk chatter. Can't care when so many other issues are happening. As NZers we pay a massive environmental cost for dairy industry, tha cost should be factored into the domestic cost, that's the way to look at the milk cost issue. No more greedy farmers screwing the domestic market.
Guyon covers NONE of this.
Fonterra is simply too powerful to question properly, and q+a do a shitty job of holding the buggers to account. It's like an interview with the Government, but less milky white.
This is an industry as out of control as the mining industry in Australia is.
