Quickie: What the Fucking Fuck edition

Seriously, NZ Herald? This is what passes for election coverage?

I was going to write a whole screed here, rant and rage and encourage people to write to you or boycott you or something. But actually, seriously, I give the fuck up.

    It just gets worse… then worse again…

    Kind of makes me wish for the good old days when the news was all about rugby.

      You know what, I don’t think that “spoof” poll was quite as clever as those Whitirea students think it is.

      What did it actually prove:
      1) Crap polls with self-selecting samples aren’t statistically credible?
      2) The lamestream media is obsessed with trivia, with a big side of sexist objectification of female politicians?
      3) Way too many political hacks need to get a life, preferably one of their own?

      Three statements of the bleeding obvious that could have been made without sexist, obnoxious and generally shitty dick-baggery, I think. I’m not even that pissed off with the students, who after all are just that, and arguably don’t know any better. The school head Jim Tucker, on the other hand, should.
