A mate of the Hound's thinks it was more than a bit dodgy when DairyNZ chair Jim van der Poel recently announced the director elections for the industry good body.
Two examples of this were recently played on the forever-going-broke tabloid TV channel Newshub.
The first was footage of a security guard appearing to kick an anti-marina protestor in the face at Waiheke Island.
However, trouble was the video, supplied by the protestors, cut out the part where the same protestor had first kicked a security guard in the head numerous times and nearly drowned him!
The other footage shown on Newshub was of cows deep in mud in Southland, displaying terrible winter grazing practice.
However, this video was supplied by an anti-winter grazing activist who is funded by Greenpeace.
Questions have now been raised about this footage being doctored and not even current, but from last year.
