It’s not because the NNA nominees are out that I am reminded that we have some of the best media in the world. Not at all. I think, like Jerry Seinfeld, that award shows are horseshit.
No, I believe that – for such a small country – we have some of the best reporters and editors in the world. We are extraordinarily well-served. How well? Well, my view is that Donald Trump could not have happened here. Our media would have been calling “bullshit” a lot sooner than their U.S. counterparts did (Paul Godfrey’s gutting exercise notwithstanding).
Anyway. To my former journalistic colleagues, I say: you are among the best of the best. If that makes me Pollyanna, so be it.
