What's a bigger story? Uffindell from 20 years ago or current bullying claims by Labour's own MPs?



Imagine if Gaurav Sharma and Louisa Wall did an interview with ol' mate, Jack Tame. The virtuous labour party would be scrambling pretty hard.

No media outlet that wants to keep its Public Interest Journalism Fund money is going to comment. Which is the whole point.

Godfrey isn't writing about bullying (hint: it's in the first paragraph of the quote) he's writing about how the system that we live in clearly favours one group over another, based on race. #pakeha.whataboutism

fixed_truth - that is not a good example. It is reverse whataboutism because it is a completely fabricated scenario - it is not reporting it is opining and story telling.

It depends on what the bullying is. If it's MPs bullying staffers, that's not acceptable. But if it's MPs bullying MPs, that's politics, right?

Politics being the alternative to actual conflict, murdering each other to determine who gets what resources?

This is how you can tell that the NZ media know who pays their bills now. When a brown MP makes complaints about bullying in the Labour Party, this is how the NZ Herald portrays it:
Quote:
Labour MP's claims disputed, no room for bullies at Parliament - PM
Ardern wouldn't say whether she thought Sharma was a bully or not.
Got that? By making Jacinda look bad, Sharma is the bully.

NZHerald run an opinion piece by Sharma with all his allegations and now they've run a story on the Labour Parties response to this. Problem?

It's like me posting a thread entitled "Ardern won't say whether she thinks fixed_truth plays with a non-inverted mouse". Jacinda is obviously not saying anything but it's pretty clear that the editorial position of NZG is that you're a goddamn stinking non-inverted mouse user.

But Jacinda didn't say anything.

Wait, Arden is running both RNZ and NZH?

You'll never know, because you don't read anything on the NZH!

Damn right. I don't eat McDonalds either.

Somehow I've been suckered into this idea of "health". Weird, huh?

This is some next level chess shit from Jacinda.

1. She gets NZHerald to run a story by Sharma about bullying in the Labour Party. At one of the worst possible times politically.

2. She then gets NZHerald to run a story (when obviously they should never have even asked for a response, hence why guilty until proven innocent) that Labour denies Sharma's claims.

3. Now she gets NZHerald to run a story with claims from Sharma's ex-staffer that HE was the bully. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/parlia...DPEVT7B4JT24Q/

Like sands through the hourglass...

Cleanest asshole ever doesn't mean there's no shit. Just that it's cleaner than the rest.

So basically, "we know there are key people that knew about this".

Luxon speaks pretty well and at moments comes across as a competent MP. But then there's way to much of this shit where he turns a relatively simple non issue situation into something revealing him as a numpty.

Parties line up against National for refusing to rule out working with Brian Tamaki's Freedoms NZ

Credit to the National comms team, dropping the Uffindell “youthful indiscretion, boys will be boys, learnings, put it behind us, healing” shitburger literally hours before Liz the Great’s funeral media frenzy is *chef’s kiss*
