Green Party Media Spokesman ‘Does a Bennett’

The Green Party’s Media spokesman Martin Dobson did his best to make his leader look comparatively clued up on policy when asked about his proposed “20% cap” on media ownership on the Media Show yesterday:

Steve Hewlett: You say there should be a 20% limit on ownership. Can you help me out here? Ownership of what? Sales, readership, titles, what is it?

Martin Dobson: Well… it’s about organisations that own television stations, radio stations and newspapers for instance… So we would put a limit on the amount they can own…

SH: But the amount of what?

MD: Well… I’m not entirely sure… I mean it’s an aspiration… I guess it’s to do with listenership and readership?

Return to base Agent Dobson, the secret Green plot to make Natalie Bennett look less incompetent in interviews is going well…

Quote of the Day

Logging company Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau suing Greenpeace

“A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober admissions after years of irresponsible attacks.”
