Oh, You'd Know About This...

... you're [insert minority group].

The TV3 News is really starting to bug me. I'm getting annoyed at the way every article that has an Asian, or Maori, or Female slant on it has a reporter that matches the demographic.

I think I would find that really insulting. "Oh, look, we're going to do a filler on Asian medicene. Get me an Asian reporter." "Oooh, this is a Maori land rights story. Get me the most Maori-looking reporter we have."

Bah! I would like see and hear from the best reporter for the job regardless of their skin colour or racial heritage or gender or weight. If the report is objective then the reporter's viewpoint and history should be inconsequential.

Then I think, hey, why bother taking TV seriously? TV is just entertainment. All my real news comes from the papers available on the internet.

Yet still it irks me. Irk Irk Irk.

I hate TV News... especially now it is sponsered by insurance companies... What IS that? Do they encourage coverage of deaths and disasters so people will buy more product?!

lol yeah. And I'd love to try to claim from AMI for a weather-related loss, a la the ads. Don't most insurance companies classify weather as an Act of God and refuse to pay?
