Screen captured from Stuff, I think one of the sub-editors shares my sentiments on the over the top coverage of the Key-Obama detente.

  1. Maybe life does imitate art and John Key’s nickname is ‘Chance’ and he likes to do a little gardening.

  2. Even more so if you look at p2 of today’s paper ‘Obama says nice things about New Zealand’. Well, I laughed,

  3. The New York summit, as not brought to you by the New Zealand media:

    Actual UN Speakers’ Schedule, Afternoon Session, Friday September 25:

    3 p.m. – 9 p.m.

    Serbia
    Micronesia (Federated States of)
    Mali
    Congo
    Cote D’Ivoire
    Moldova
    Swaziland
    Mongolia
    Cameroon
    Suriname
    Liberia

    Papua New Guinea
    Norway

    Looks like Key will clash with the cocktails, or maybe the soup if the Archduke of Andorra won’t shut up.

  4. It was ever so…

    In Australia, the biggest impact of Qadaffi’s speech was that everyone buggered off, and left the room half empty when KRUDD spoke. But only news show mentioned THAT. Everyone else showed him getting photo ops with Obama, or close ups of KRUDD speeaking or people applauding. And no mention of JK, not even the hot water issue :)

  6. Another example of Fairfax’s ‘news for gerbils’ style of journalism.
