Out of Dontext


Why out of all the possible shots of Don Brash at Rod Donald's funeral did TV3 (media player link) chose this one? Every other politician was portrayed in a manner one would expect to see at a funeral, Helen was crying, others siting there solemnly heads in hands. Yet Don Brash gets a shot taken out of context implying that he was glad Rod Donald was being buried today.
You may or may not agree with everything Don Brash says but (unlike Peter Dunne) he is a decent man and this choice of shot was most unfair.

i totally agree, it is just another portrayl of how our populist media works. no one in their right mind (with even the littelst decency)would be happy over a persons passing and if they were im sure they would not have the gaul to show it at their funeral!
