The MSM wants to overthrow the Government

Summarised by Centrist

New Zealand’s MainStream Media (MSM) is perceived as manipulative and biassed, aiming to push particular narratives, which favour the political left according to Rob MacCulloch.

He writes that the MSM’s stance against meritocracy, portrayal of inequality, and environmental policies is disingenuous.  

“The MSM does not believe in meritocracy. The root of this country’s problems is that incompetent folks have been appointed to many influential positions, not because they were the best qualified, hardest working, or smartest, but because other agendas were at play,” he says. 

MacCulloch suggests that MSM is now at war with the coalition Government with opposition parties and questions its respect for democracy.

Biassed and manipulative opinions are dressed up as analysis and fact-checks, he says.
