2PP086 – 23 April 2013

There was a lot in the news this week, and we start with the Boston bombings. First, Jason asks how it was reported in New Zealand? We then move on to the generally poor newsmedia coverage.

From there it’s on to a happier topic: The enactment of marriage equality in New Zealand. This lets Arthur talk a bit about how the legislative process works in New Zealand, and how it differs from the US.

    Hey Arthur and Jason. Great show this week. I enjoyed your take on the media coverage of the Boston bomber situation as well as the rest of the show. I thought you would find it funny that I was listening on my iPhone speaker dock outside while I was painting my Mom’s deck in South Texas. I’m sure the conservative neighbors enjoyed the discussion just as much as I did .
