Penny Wise at NZBC deplores the local so-called news media; she compares the recent childish reactions of the two main channels to the global economic crisis, which they both treated with all the gravity you'd expect of a story about a cute cat stuck up a tree.
As she points out, the problem of flatulent content is exacerbated by the plonkers who regularly appear all over most of the media, spreading their expertise like manure across a parched paddock.
Plonkers like this muppet, a one-time senior political advisor with aspirations to that same job again, who in his most recent blog peddles this crap: "that Franklin Roosevelt [led] the world out of the Great Depression in the 1930s."
This is bullshit on stilts upon Acrow props. Allow me to recommend again to him, and to every other commentator who opens their mouth on this topic just to let the wind blow their tongue around, that they try to divest themselves of the many myths about the Great Depression and about how the world eventually escaped it.
On the former, Lawrence Reed's 'Great Myths of the Great Depression' is ideal reading. And on the latter, Mark Skousen's 'Saving the Depression: A New Look at World War II' is the most succinct explanation.
Print them out and keep them by your phone so you have them to hand when the media come calling.
