Thats A Bit Back To Front, Team Red.

Complaining about the "ref" is pretty normal but after the game, surely.

Labour are getting in early and complaining about TVNZ appointing Hosking as moderator for the upcoming Political debates.

I suppose if it had been Shane Taurima or Corrin Dann it would have been OK.

Most sportspeople I know understand it is more likely to bite your arse to bitch about the ref prior, it can make them cross.

As for TV3 I guess Little Creep Campbell is more worried about Key than the other way around.

It certainly does highlight how a state broadcaster tends to support the government. In terms of partisanship, they could as well get me to run it as Hosking - I don't hate National any more than Hosking hates Labour, after all.

I see the Nats have come back with not minding having to deal with John Campbell on TV3. Well, of course not - he has a bit of journalistic integrity. It's kind of funny that the 'Little Creep' insult you ridicule him with was rumoured to have been applied to him by a Labour prime minister...

PM ... John Campbell and journalistic integrity are a bit like oil and water .... but I don't mind that in the sense that with Campbell you know what you're getting.

I think that, by and large, the media do a professional job.

I can recall the bleats if despair by National in 2002, echoed by Labour today, when neither thought they were being fairly dealt to. However, when it's clearly a case of 'dead man walking', you can hardly blame the media for focusing on the looming debacle.

It doesn't really matter who TVNZ put up to MC the debates. Labour are in full blame everybody else mode.
How Cunliffe could let this become a story is mind boggling.
He just looks pathetic.
