Canon Media Awards- an exercise in progressive cynicism and vanity

Read through this and have a laugh at the outrageous and cynical self congratulatory artifice on display in an industry already dying for an excess of those very indulgences. A few talented people but the majority are outside of their enthusiastically back slapping peer group, largely irrelevant to any ongoing social discourse.

  1. Well what did you expect? Other than a few blogs, NZ has no politically centrist media to speak of, let alone anything approaching right-wing.
