Radio NZ

National Radio runs an excellent “news” programme between 0600 and 0700 on weekdays. A run up to the junk programme Morning Report. (After 0700, Plunket and Co ensure quick use of the off switch.)

I don’t know what it’s called but I do know I greatly enjoy listening to it. It comprises Radio Left Wing news at 0600 and 0630 but in between these aberrations there is a host of interesting and very well presented pieces. Among these are a round up of news from Pacifica and Melanesia; a segment with the latest goings on in the rural sector; a piece called Mana Report which often features Derek Fox and most of the time maintains a pretty positive line; and some good commentary on business issues of the day.

Occasionally there is a Leftie invasion, like the morning Margaret Muru came on to reflect longingly upon her vision of Maori controlling all the mineral and oil rights to the seabed – including the whole continental shelf.

Which brings me back to this morning’s aberration. This morning, on the 0630 news I heard a breathless reference to “a report which concludes that human activity is damaging the world in which we live to such an extent that the world cannot be sustained for more than one generation. 30 to 40 percent of the world’s species are near extinction and within a short time there will be vast “dead spots” on the face of the earth.”

Not a mention of who spawned this quite ridiculous “report” or what organizations contributed to it. Another disgraceful example of the way a few loonies who inveigle themselves into positions of influence can get away with poisoning the minds of unsuspecting ordinary people who innocently think the Gummint funded news service in Outer Rower is reliable.

The story is very true Adolf.
The human activity they were talking about was Political Correctness and Socialism.

30-40% of the worlds entrepreneurs, thinkers and inventors are now extinct. The middle class of the species is also threatened.

There are vast desolate, politcally ravaged areas completely devasted by communists, and the sub-species, socialists (Although they have been controversely classified as a type of parasite, attaching to a host and leeching until the host is reduced to a vegetative state known as "beneficiarus lazinuss".

Some places are so over taxed, the entire economic habitat is failing.

The problem is they think the worlds taxable resources are infinite. They continue to raise taxes on the basis its good for the social environment. Then they squander those very resources, literally burning them off like it doesn't matter.

The problem has become so severe that many young people are migrating north, across the oceans looking for new havens. Some, unfortunately never return, and their fate remains unknown.

One solution has been to give a little of the tax resource back to the native species. It does seem to perk up a few of the injured ones, until they realise that their lifeblood is drained via new taxes.

A new tax comes into effect tomorrow, on oil, which is well known to assist the species in improving their lives. It helps with their transportation of food, getting their young safely to education ponds, and travelling to harvesting areas where many adults forage for a paycheck.

There really ought to be an awareness campaign or something, before the entire middle class working species is completely wiped out. It really is that bad, so give Radio NZ more credit for allowing the broadcast.

Heh. Those "recent comment" listings are dangerous.

Hey you had me going to. The 'report' has made it to all the usual suspects.

On a related note, Stuff seems to have the same editorial bent as the BBC Online. Even though Stuff has access to many interesting items, they always highlight moonbat pieces. Just like the BBC.
