Mostly I despair at the quality of NZ TV news.
I do however give kudos to TV1 for its coverage of the
Canterbury quake throughout the Saturday.
Equally, I condemn TV3 for not having the wit nor intelligence to 'pull' their continuous run of infomercials that morning to cover the developing situation.
And now in a further demonstration of insensitivity and crass stupidity the TV3 website is promoting as its lead article coverage of another website that alleges ChCh Mayor Bob Parker 'engineered' the quake. See
Yes, the site may be a spoof. Equally, this is not the time to give it oxygen.
TV3, you've blown it yet again.
