Today’s political “news” from Fairfax Media – draw your own conclusions:

The lastest Roy Morgan poll shows that the National Party’s support has now fallen so far that, if an election were held today, Labour-Greens-NZ First would be on their way into Government.

But, there isn’t a single word about it on stuff.co.nz.

Instead, today’s political headlines are: “Kiwi’s are tolerating moderate austerity”, above a nice picture of John Key, and “Smart performer’s healing touch”, with a picture of health minister Tony Ryall wearing a surgery gown and a big smile, standing beside a hospital bed.

I’m not even going to comment further, because intelligent New Zealanders can figure the implications of all this out for themselves.

All I’m going to say is, if you think it’s time Fairfax Media stopped insulting us with National Party propaganda vaguely dressed up as news, please share this blog, join us on facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/fearfacts/, and let’s get some genuine journalism back into New Zealand’s biggest print and on-line news media corporation.
