Confusing as life may be sometimes I found this extraordinarily interesting.
Looking at democratic journalism in a similar way to NZDSOS (NZ Doctors Speaking Out With Science) that is a rebellion against insanity.
Insanity in its original definition was, a lack of relationships with what was deemed the real world.
Some journalists, like some doctors rebelled years ago and I don’t discount the work of the site owner before my adventure into the wilderness.
It’s only more recently through cancel culture and a period post 2020 that we identify journalists like Sean Plunket in The Platform and Peter Williams in Reality Check Radio in a more obvious public picture.
Do you place those individuals alongside the journalist above who was the fifth victim named in a boarding house arson in Wellington.
More than a public service … in a positive light you might say, a resurrection of sanity.
What I am curious about, aside from the platitude, is what work might have been produced and where it might be found and if any work had been actively censored in some way.
Why is there not more than a personal platitude when this week we see the mockumentary, Fire and Fury, led by media personality, Paula Penfold, glorified as ‘Documentary Of The Year.
