Left Wing Blog now running paid for content SHOCK HORROR

I really love it when people throw mud, in the hope that it will stick, while doing themselves exactly what they are accusing others of doing, without any real evidence only conjecture.

Well I have a little more than conjecture to offer as this is clearly an advertorial for Laila Harre’s new business venture. It seems her walk around New Zealand with her sister talking about socialist politics has left barely a ripple on the public consciousness so she has gone back to what she is really good at…..making money as a hard nosed capitalist.

One of New Zealand’s left wing Blogs has promoted her restaurant today in a blatant advertorial piece. I wonder how the writer was paid? A free meal or two? or a ‘ donation ‘ to the running of the Blog or was there an actual invoice for advertising?

According to all the left wing blogs it is ok for journalists to be paid for content but not bloggers. It is dirty apparently to hide the fact that you have been paid to write a piece or have received some other form of compensation. Even MSM these days hide advertorials and call them news because they do not want to be seen to be writing to order. Remember, being paid is dirty and if you are a Blogger then it is down right filthy.

An interesting point to add is that last year Laila Harre was all about paying her employees a ‘ living wage ‘ but only if the business environment allowed it. I have a funny feeling that it won’t.

Ms Harre’s restaurant, O’Sarracino in Mt Eden Rd, hosted the announcement of the accreditation system yesterday but still pays two employees below $18.40. Another director of the business, Maurizio Piglia, said those two would be paid the new $18.80 rate by June or July “if the business environment supports us”…

…Labour Minister Simon Bridges said the figure seemed to be “much more what they feel rather than what good evidence suggests is right”.

He said raising the legal minimum wage to the original figure of $18.40 would cost employers $2.3 billion a year and wipe out 24,000 jobs.
