    • I watched that interview with Jennings last night. What a complete bell end he was. With people as arrogant as him in charge it’s a miracle they lasted as long as they did. It’s actually worth watching for a laugh if you get a chance and like seeing crocodile tears.

    • revy, its almost as if viewers and advertisers are sick of being propagandised, told what to do and constantly lied to by media also not to mention the forced te reo on the masses.
      they tried their darndest to mold viewers into what they wanted instead of molding their business into what viewers wanted… go woke go broke!!!

      its hilarious that really this has jacindas poo fingers all over it, so many people stopped watching tv news when that piece of shit kept getting endless fawning puff pieces by reporters and her very own daily covid queen lockdown talk show.
      they wouldve went down the gurgler anyways but jacinda just sped it up by 5yrs
      DIE MSM DIE!!!!

      • I heard Jennings being interviewed by HDPA and I thought the same thing. He mentioned the $100m loss in revenue from advertising in the last 3 years which lo and behold, coincides with the time when the Ardern regime was dominating the airwaves with their “sustained propaganda” which Newshub was lock step with. That this corporate twat can’t join the dots on that suggests he is better off running a cake stall rather than a billion dollar media entity. I celebrate their demise.

          • I’d like to say his sheer lack of awareness and inability to predict a very obvious market shift was surprising , but after seeing the utter contempt he treats his customers with this result comes as no surprise at all.

        • Of course advertising is down
          A large part of teevee advertising is retail

          In 2020 when retail could not open there was no point in advertising and especially incurring cost with no matching revenue.
          the Goo-mint stepped in with fake convid lies pretending to be advertising- it was pure propaganda.

          People got used to zoom calls and buying on line in 2020/21
          People have continued these habits and store-based retail is down.
          They can only allocate a percentage of revenue to advertising.

          The world has changed massively from 4 years ago.
          This has been like an early 1930s Depression upheaval, or early 1940s War upheaval.

          Adapt or Die.
          for MSM… please die.

      • I have not watched the news for years all the propaganda was all too much for me to cope with and used to make me so angry I decided it was better for me to not watch. Most people get all the news they want by their computers so why watch propaganda. They talk about Russia when we are under the same regime it seems.

      • Why is Jennings surprised and why did he think Newshub presented an alternative news source? One of the many reasons I stopped watching TV news about 10 years ago was that I could flick from TV 1 onto TV3 and see exactly the same news/propaganda item on each station at the same time. TV3 could even set their own program timing to be different to TV1.

  2. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will step down as Senate GOP leader in November, ending a record 17-year tenure at the helm.
    The Associated Press was the first to report the move.

    Mr. McConnell has been Senate GOP leader since 2007. He was majority leader of the Senate between 2015 and 2017 and minority leader between 2007 and 2015 and again in 2021.

    Mr. McConnell reiterated that he is not leaving the Senate, though he said he will be in “a different seat in the chamber” as opposed to the seat in the front row where he currently sits.

  3. A potential merger involving former President Donald Trump’s social media platform Truth Social can take the company public and will give him access to $3.5 billion in funds—a deal which his political rivals are looking to thwart.
    On Feb. 14, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the merger between Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC) and Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG). TMTG is the owner of social media platform Truth Social. Once DWAC merges with TMTG, it can go public, with President Trump holding 78.75 million shares in the combined entity. DWAC shares were trading at around $45 as of 1:45 p.m. EST on Feb. 27, indicating that President Trump’s stake in the new entity could be worth $3.5 billion.
    The amount can be a substantial cash infusion for the former president who has been charged with a $355 million fine two weeks ago by a New York judge in a civil fraud ruling. Adding in interest, the final amount comes to $464 million.

  4. On Google AI.

    Google’s Anti-White AI Is Tech’s Bud Light Moment
    Andrew Torba, February 24, 2024

    As the CEO of Gab I’ve been in the fight to expose the bias and censorship of Big Tech companies for nearly 8 years now. Every few months over the course of those eight years there has been one story or another about Big Tech’s bias and their censorship of people on the right.

    Not once have they ever backed down after the right complained, in fact if anything they’ve always doubled down. For the first time ever with widespread backlash over their anti-White image AI: Google is scared–and they should be. This is tech’s Bud Light moment and they desperately want it to stop.

    1. The head of their AI project was on Fox News begging for forgiveness.

    2. He then had to make his X account private after his own posts were exposed.

    3. Google had to shut down their Image AI in the middle of the most competitive tech land grab for AI.

    We need to continue pushing this story for the next several weeks or even months. Force them to shut down Gemini completely to stop us. This story can’t just be last week’s news cycle, we need to keep up the momentum into next week and beyond.

  6. The corporate mainstream media dutifully plays its role as a paid-for megaphone of distorted narratives. Integrity is sadly lacking everywhere. The problem is that our governments prefer to be influenced by Corporatist Organisations (NGO’S).
    They call them “Stakeholders”, which is a word invented for hiding disproportionate, non-democratic influence. They do not listen to the People. Corruption in government and poor policies are the result.
    The politicians dress up this merger of “Corporate and State Fascism” with fancy terms such as “Public Private Partnerships”, “Corporate Partnerships”, and “Advisory Groups”, and hope no one notices.
    Then they usually end up working for those very Corporate “Stakeholders” after they have left office, with the country and the people worst off.

  7. “Allied Petroleum, Gull, Z, Waitomo and other fuel stops around New Zealand reported problems with card payments on Thursday because of a software glitch they say is likely caused by their systems not being programmed to deal with the date February 29.”

    Well you can hardly blame them for that. I mean who woulda thought?

    • We have motels. Younger people don’t watch TV. Even 50inch ones with free Netflix.

      Sky is a big expensive albatross for old boomers addicted to bread and circus football, and will die too soon.

      Nobody uses cabled phones either. Modern motels don’t put in phones.

      The influence mechanism shifted. Hence the big money has gone into subverting the new Youtube sensations: Joe Rogan, Pewdiepie, MrBeast. If you don’t take the money, you get labelled Anti-semitic and cancelled.

  8. New York AG Letitia James files a lawsuit against the worlds largest beef producer for “ misleading the public” about its impact on climate change.

    The USA has stuffed its legal system with these politically appointed nut case lawyers and judges.
    James has to be one of the worst. Oh and Fani.

  9. Nice one.

    Maricopa County Board of Supervisors just ran out of a public meeting when they were served the following:

    My name is Michelle Klann, and I’m here today to put you on public notice and to inform you that you are not our elected officials.

    None of you have never signed an oath to the Republic of Arizona.

    Instead, you have signed an oath of office to a foreign corporation which means this is an act insurrection.

    You do not have a proper bond carrying surety for your actions to we the people.

    Due to all the voter fraud, you have never been formally voted in.

    Acting as if you have any authority over the people is a direct act of treason.

  10. It seems that we of the boomer generation are resisting the efforts of the owners of retirement “villages” to pen us in boxes & crates awaiting cremation. In fact some of ” the largest and most financially successful generation” are getting quite stroppy about the proposition:

    …….” “They don’t want to settle for what was traditional retirement age here, they want more lifestyle choice, they want activity, they want to be who they are in the village.”

    The company’s head of retirement strategy Jill Birch said the new generation heading toward retirement villages wants to be in control more than their predecessors. “These are people that were picketing in the 60s … they want their voice to be heard and they’re in control and they will now tell us what they want and they absolutely do.”……..

    We shouldn’t worry about old age…….it doesn’t last that long!

  11. “In the same way that it flipped the Opium Wars of the nineteenth century and created the Fentanyl Wars of the twenty-first century, Beijing now works to create a Century of Humiliation and weaken the United States by fomenting division by putting weapon-enhancing technologies into the hands of felons and criminal gangs, but also fuelling social division on US streets.

  12. There is an article over on Newscrub titled ” why Guy Williams wanted to know more about Jim’s mowing”. I didn’t bother reading it – even I’m not that sad, but I would imagine the simple answer is he’s looking for a job and as he doesn’t appear to be any good at anything else he’s tried he might as well give lawn mowing a whirl. I hear Jethro and co made a decent quid out of it.

  13. Jims’ Mowing.
    The Aussie guy who started Jims Mowing fought the authorities at lockdown time as they weren’t allowed to mow lawns and he claimed what was wrong with mowing when you were out in the open and nowhere near people.

  14. There is a post on BDF saying Jack Tame gets $800,000/yr !! If that is correct or anywhere near correct TVNZ deserve to go the same way as Newshub. At the very least Melissa Lee needs to get rid of the Board and replace them with hardnosed, ruthless business people to shake the organisation up.

  15. I heard that the chair of Kāinga Ora’ has gone, Marck Gische.
    another Labour wastrel.
    I heard right.

    Housing Minister Chris Bishop announces resignation of Kāinga Ora board chairman Vui Mark Gosche
    Benjamin Plummer.
    Kāinga Ora board chairman Vui Mark Gosche has resigned amid an ongoing Government review into the agency’s performance.

    In a statement today, Housing Minister Chris Bishop thanked former Labour minister Gosche for his many years of public service.

    “Mr Gosche tendered his resignation as chair yesterday evening. He will remain a member of the board until the end of March.”

    Bishop announced the board’s deputy chairman John Duncan would take over the head role until a new appointment is confirmed.

    Bishop cited a report from the Treasury and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development that found Kāinga Ora’s level of debt had grown from $2.7 billion in 2018 to $12.3b in June last year.

    • ……” Kāinga Ora’s level of debt had grown from $2.7 billion in 2018 to $12.3b in June last year”…….

      Probably with receipts for a few hundred consultants’ reports & a myriad of huis complete with koha but no extra housing.

      It’s the Labour way.

        • Kaianga Ora is only a reincarnation of the State Advances Corporation charged with housing ungrateful, bludging gang members & career solo mothers in taxpayer funded slums.

          But “They should requisition sea containers” has long been on my wishlist for the vermin who wreck the houses they pay a peppercorn rental for. When Nasska assumes his rightful position as gatekeeper of state funding for fuckwits & no-hopers you will see row upon row of forty foot containers adapted for housing those not up to looking after taxpayer’s assets.

    Tucker Carlson Takes On Critics of His Interview with Putin | The Glenn Beck Podcast

    Tucker Carlson just did something that no other Western journalist in the world has been either willing or able to do in a very long time. He traveled to Moscow to speak to Russian President Vladimir Putin. And right on cue, the media accused him of being a Putin lover. Suddenly, journalism became a crime in the eyes of other journalists.
