I Almost Gagged at This ‘Advert’

July 14, 2008

I thought I was watching TV3 News but must have been mistaken since what I saw appeared to be a paid advertisement for a new brothel opening in Dannevirke.

Pray tell — if I decide to open an art gallery in Karori, will I also get similarly positive nationwide and prime-time television coverage?

I just about gagged at the exclusively glowing response from the locals — no uptight, obviously sexually repressed prudes in Dannevirke, eh? Or were they edited out?

If this glowing example of “journalism” becomes the standard for TV3, we shouldn’t be surprised when it follows TVNZ’s slide in the ratings.
