“Of course, it is a newspaper’s prerogative to represent a country’s government rather than its people. But, as it is “the people” who buy and read the publication, they should at least be warned when they’re being manipulated.”
New Zealand’s capital city is poorly served by its only daily newspaper, The Dominion Post.
Fairfax’s honeymoon with John Key’s Government has developed into a cosy marriage, and our democracy is suffering at the hands of the overseas-based media moguls who own this publication.
Every day, an unbalanced agenda is served up to the lower North Island and presented as objective fact. Opposition parties seem unable to gain any traction in this one-sided publication, but their reliance on the media means that they dare not confront this important issue.
Fortunately, we can!
It’s high time Wellington and New Zealand demanded some balance in their newspapers, and until we have it, Fear facts EXPOSED! will analyse the Dominion Post and provde a much needed critique into the angling, positioning, insertion and omission of stories covered – or, not covered – by Fairfax Media.
