this is a piece from helen bain in the sunday startimes..
she starts off rambling on how the media were bullshitted to by peters, mike williams and others..
that’s all well and good..then she veers off into an attack on the maori party because they refused to join in the chorus over zimbanwe…and because pita sharples made the salient point of…um, in the midst of all this outpouring of concern for the zimbabwean people and vilification of mugabe, could we look around a bit more and find other cases possibly even more worthy of international attention..um, darfur anyone..?
bain totally ignores this valid distinction drawn by pita sharples and attempts to paint the maori party as what ?..i’m not sure..(and i don’t think she knows)..it’s not a structured article..it’s a vent..
this total failure to address the point raised by sharples and to just launch into an anti-maori party rant is worthy of the most strident of the rightwing blogs..as has about the same credibility..
(maybe bain has been spending too much time at sir humphreys..)
