Someone needs a hug.

Prime Minister has hurt fee fees. The media is being cruel and unusual. Two papers who could be relied upon for forelock tugging and bowing an' scraping have been rudely asking questions and concentrating on "scandals". Honestly, it is all he can do to get off the fainting couch some days.
And why, why why, the poor Prime Mincer asks in anguish? Obviously, it is to sell papers and plus there were genuine news stories, which is totes unfair.
Note where the Prim Munster was having his weeping fit. On the radio show of one Leighton Smith, an unctuous, pompous, and spectacularly mediocre radio person. Just the sort of person to soothe poor Keysies  troubled brow. "There, there, Prime Minister, your godship, BAD MEDIA see what you've done?" 
But brave Johnno is not complaining:
"I don't mean that as a complaint, I'm not moaning about it, it's just a statement of fact."
"And it's a fact because I said it" he did not add.
I hope the media's mother is proud of it.

UPDATE for great Justice: 
Prime Minister John Key has denied criticising the media...
However in a press conference this afternoon, Mr Key told media they were "doing well".
He denied singling out the New Zealand Herald and the Sunday Star Times for criticism.
"We've got a lot of policies we're implementing. There'll always be critical appraisal of that. It comes with the territory. Doesn't bother me."
So when he said that he wasn't being critical. uh huh.  Just wondering if anyone has been checking on the Library pixies lately, this has the hallmarks of one of their black flag ops.

Word of advice, John. If you're going to say "to hell with his ethics, I'm not going to sack Banksie from the cabinet until he is convicted of crimes and thrown out of Parliament anyway," then it is probably not a good idea to say as the next sentence:

"The Local Electoral Act, which is the act that governed taking of donations for the mayoral campaign is a very liberal and loose act."

That sounds a bit like "Ha ha, all those loopholes so it's NOT GONNA HAPPEN, bite it!"

Also legal: nose-picking, yelling at grannies, bow ties.

Black Flag ops are interested in getting their party back on the ballot.

When does he go all Tricky Dick on them?

"You won't have P.M.J.K. to kick around any longer!"

Maybe the Finns would be more likely to hug him.

On a rug, with a bug, while doing the frug.

I wish I had heard that interview. Shonkey is bad enough on his own but being soothed by that boor Smith would be like the blind leading the blind.
