As was predicted here early this week, the MSM?is now mining for “stories” about the Kaikoura earthquake.

The transition from reporting to manufacturing is already well advanced.

Stuff have gone looking for business people in Cheviot and surrounds about the possibility their trade will suffer.

The story is accompanied by at least one sad face and some waffly suggestions.

Stuff has led this morning with a twee pun headline “Quake Escape” “the quake brought us together!” so clearly the MSM?is working to self-justify and are opting for “human angle” stories.

They are always sadly predictable and more or less utterly irrelevant! I expect by the end of next week they’ll have panel-beaten any dignity or relevance out of this calamity.

They are so easy to detest.
