Whaleoil on a favourite theme of ours

Whale Oil Beef Hooked logoA vigorous, voracious press would keep our country honest, unfortunately they are all as corrupt as Len Brown

Our media have and continue to act in an utterly shameful manner. Now chasing off after some irrelevant titbit that some National MP said something. It is pathetic… our media like to claim they are the ones who hold the powerful to account, instead they are gutless, shameful apologists. They should be embarrassed. Len Brown is playing the victim now and his Albert Street branch of the mayoral office is running interference beautifully on his behalf.
