It is blatantly obvious that there is a media conspiracy to destroy the public’s perception of David Cunliffe and the Labour Party

Every policy announcement made by Labour is met with a headline or talking points about a single line in the speech or announcement making fun of Cunliffe or twisting what is said to show him or the party in a negative light. It is not just, it is also The Herald, Newstalk ZB, Radio Live and the television.


An accurate headline would have been something like 'Massive Funding Boost Promised For Family Violence Services' This would have focussed debate on the policy being announced and accurately summarised the content of the policy. Instead the media give us 'I'm sorry for being a man ' which is now the main talking point on the radio talk shows, not the actual policy itself, turning it into a personal attack on Cunliffe.
