News with nudges and winks

Actually, the coverage of important events and issues in New Zealand is so poor, the media could be accused of criminal negligence. Their preoccupation with sport and other trivia, at a time when the world is hurtling towards destruction, is nothing short of insane. Yes, that's what the people want. But would they want so much, if they had an understanding of the dire situation we are in? Are people going to turn round someday, and say, "Why didn't your tell us?" or "Why didn't you give us more analysis, so that we could have made sounder judgments?"
