Why is it when these guys are presented with enough facts to uncover a REAL story of corruption & blackmail, they appear to be a non existant news entity which prefers to present tabloid garbage over corrupt practises ......

The toothless media of NZ, is afraid of their own shadows .....

There is only one media company that is doing any work of any significance at the moment, and that is TV3.

The problem is for them the same as for the rest of us, ACC is a huge corporation with great wealth, with many spin doctors and legal resources at their disposal, certainly more than enough to blow a cash strapped and struggling TV3 out of the water.

I would rather have TV3 around nipping at their heels, and reporting the odd small victory that we have, than not have an independent news source at all.

Because they are governed by legal boundaries... hence sometimes they are not able to ask the most direct of questions, so they have to pussy foot round the subjects. So very very frustrating, I agree. But from the 'Horses mouths' this is exactly what the case is.
Also if ACC get wind that a channel is gearing up to do a doc on them, they get their legal team in straight away to squash it, practically before it is in maiden waters.

Yes it's all about politics, government coffers and global money racking.... tsk tsk tsk
