Adolf happened to walk past the TV set while The Cook was watching One News.
The lead story was the flooding and consequent loss of life in Fiji. It was being fronted by Barbara Dreaver and any casual observer would have believed she was there.
Of course she's not there. She was chucked out by Commodore Frank. A quick phone call to TVNZ confirms that she is in fact in New Zealand.
So, TVNZ uses someone else's footage (???) unattributed, dubs in a voice over by Dreaver and cons the public into thinking that their reporter is there on the spot.
Then to cap it off, they moved to an on the spot reporter giving us live action. Not from the floods. Oh no. He was in an Auckland ethnic radio studio which is about to launch an appeal.
What a bunch of pathetic mendacious fools.
