Going yellow!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: The Hound was gobsmacked to learn that the NZ media's love affair with 'our' Jacinda took another great leap forward - or more correctly backwards - during the recent visit of Australian PM Scott Morrison.

Apparently, Ardern and her PR lackeys demanded that the NZ media submit their questions in advance before a press conference between the cuddler-in-chief and her Aussie counterpart.

By all accounts, our 'open and transparent' PM was concerned about the 'China issue' being raised and the embarrassment any tough questions might cause to our relationship with the communist powerhouse.

Ironically, Ardern's controlling of the media is identical to the totalitarian Chinese regime, where one does not ask embarrassing questions of its leaders.

However, what's worse was the gutless toadies in the lamestream media who complied with her demands.
