TV3 - They don't just present the news they get it.

Yup TV3 certainly do understand women alright, They like shiny things given to them by serious men folk. So I really do have to give props to the channel first for finding four men to write about the serious business of politics on their decision 08 site. It is so wonderful that the channel is embracing social networking with such gusto. Well done gentlemen.

But just to make sure us women folk don't feel left out, TV3 should also be given snaps for trying to make politics more 'female friendly.' They did manage to find a solitary young female journalist to blog about the election. Except the blo-jo in question is a fashion journalist because you know young women are like totally interested fashion. And if they aren't, well they like totally have no future in politics or apparently any other career.

Yeah, I'd noticed that.

Can I have some less patronising news, please?

Posts entitled "Wine Box or briefs?" ought to be career-ending, in my humble opinion. For whoever's idea it was to put a fashion journalist on the election team, that is.

New Zealand has plenty of intelligent female journalists who do political commentary- it couldn't kill either nooz-team to roster some of them on.

This is New Zeland the land of the lowest common denominator 'journalism', the place where people don't want intelligent incisive commentary and journalistic accuracy.
