Fourth Estate Reigns Supreme

The Fiji Times has a new Boss,

ANNE Fussell has been appointed managing director of the Fiji Times, taking over from Rex Gardner, who was deported by Fiji’s interim military Government last month.

Congratulations Anne Fussell.

The term Fourth Estate refers to the press, both in its explicit capacity of advocacy and in its implicit ability to frame political issues. …something the illegal regime cannot comprehend and why Voreqe Bhainimarama and his side kick Khaiyum scream blue murder whenever truths about the ig are revealed in the print media, and why they are both helpless under the reign of their egotism.

    Hey SV,
    “The term Fourth Estate refers to the press, both in its explicit capacity of advocacy and in its implicit ability to frame political issues. ”

    …that is called plagiarism….. you think Kutu would have put that in quotes and given credit to whoever wrote that.

  4. Lata Yaqona Says:

    Kuku, benhur,vuki and epeli didn’t we tell you to make up for the number of people using our site for you to have an email address for each name you use.

    Check out your avatar it is the same. It is a tell tell sign that you are the same person. We didn’t need the password to check you out.

  5. DELTA FORCE Says:

    @Dugong – why don’t you just tell us the name?

  6. Nostradamus Says:

    Speaking of the press, why is only the Fiji Post announcing the release of the “final” charter. I am interested in obtaining a copy to see what changes were made from the original Samy draft. In other words, did the massive and expensive effort to “consult” the People on the charter all over Fiji actually result in any changes, or was it just a whitewash from the beginning, a phony attempt to pretend that the People had a say but in actuality just another way for Baigani to dictate to the People, and way to falsify some statistics on the amount of support the Charter had.

    In particular, I want to see what it says about the role of the military. This coup is all about military paramouncy and immunity for crimes against the People and the State, so I want to see how they snuck that into the Charter.

    For Bainani, who would not understand an electoral system or constitution anyway, this effort is all about ensuring him of permanent power and wealth, not about democracy, corruption, or racism.

  7. Budhau Says:

    Hey SV dude, why don’t you give this back to its rightful owners.

    “The term Fourth Estate refers to the press, both in its explicit capacity of advocacy and in its implicit ability to frame political issues. ”

    That creative writing…..…that is called plagiarism…..

  8. OjO Says:

    Budhau:

    Why are you hell-bent on wanting to return this site to its owners apart from it’s the right thing to do besides it’s neither yours nor mine to concern ourselves with their infighting?

    It is important for you not to be concerned with the fourth estate but to be concerned with the misery that has been inflicted on the third estate (the people).

  9. Budhau Says:

    Ojo, you idiot – this is not about in fighting. This is about back stabbing.
    Kutu started this site because he/she had a cause. He trusted these buggers and what did they do, stab him in the back.

    BTW – why should anyone be concerned about democracy in Fiji – based on your reasoning. It is some Ratus fighting to power and money.

    Oh that fourth state – my concern was with blatant plagiarism.

    There are some lowlifers running this site, that is what pisses me off. I don’t give a rats arse what the thirds estate is doing to itself – you should have thought about it in 1987.

  10. OjO Says:

    Budhau:

    Are just downright vacuous or just straight out of devoid of intelligence try and cognise what was said.

    Your sub-normality precedes you thus was said “Why are you hell-bent on wanting to return this site to its owners apart from it’s the right thing to do” whether is infighting or back stabbing its six of half dozen of the other.

    You need to extract you head from your rather burned out arse dipstick.

  11. OjO Says:

    In my excitement to land a king fish I may got bit abrasive in my chastisement of budhau nevertheless his incessant ranting of wanting to return this site to its rightful owners is annoying.

  12. Budhau Says:

    Ojo – hey dude with all them creative writing words, I had to go on Dictionary.com first.

    Did anyone tell you, you should keep it to an eight grade level in here.

    As far as extracting something a certain part of one’s anatomy – have you checked recently – I think it is Bainimarama who has his boots up your arse, I think you should me more concerned about that.

    ..and that excitement that you were talking about – don’t do that dude, its not good for your health – take a deep breath before you go at it.

    If this gets you this excited – you need to get a life Ojo.

    And that second post explanaing why you were such an arsehole in the first one – “Explanations should be as simple as they can be—but not simpler.” – A Einstein.

    BTW..if I pissed you off……good, that was intentional….and I think you should give this site back to Kutu.

  13. OjO Says:

    Budhau:

    With these words I bid you goodnight and time for me to enjoy my fresh curried harpuka and kingfish.

    “Words differently arranged have a different meaning, and meanings differently arranged have different effects” (Blaise Pascal)

    BTW your mate Franco would have to have a long leg to reach my arse and this repartee is over. Am just someone who enjoys evoking the senses of people and dont have any thing to do wit this site.

  14. OjO Says:

    Anne Fussell’s appointment to the top job in the Fiji Times can only be good for the people of Fiji though it may be prudent for her to re-educate some if not all journalists they employ.

    It is important for these journalists not to adopt a biased mentality but adopt a fair and balanced approach to all articles they disseminate, though it is far more important for these journalists to cognise these facts one cannot balance truth with lies.

    It is on them to expose deceit and lies all the while maintaining a fair and balanced approach the public’s interest are not served by verbal misrepresentation of the truth.

    “Fair and balanced journalism must not be a fulcrum on which to destroy democracy by leveraging away farther and farther from the truth”

    It is on these journalists to conduct themselves in a decorous manner and not skew the truth for the truth enhances Democracy thus fair and balanced journalism is a precondition for Democracy.

  15. Budhau Says:

    Ojo, screw you and the horse that you rode in on – those journalists in Fiji most of them, they know what they are doing. You ain’t going to teach them a lesson in Journalism 101.
    And that Fussell appointment – – you don’t get a job like that if didn’t know what you were doing.

    As for biased journalism – go read up on what the Interim Government people had to say about journalists after the 2000 coup.

    Where were you when the Fiji Times with its “fair and balanced” reporting brought down the FLP government.

    ..and that quote and that discussion about that “one cannot balance truth with lies.”

    You sound very intelligent, with all them big words, how you place them and all that – maybe I can go read this story on http://world.mediamonitors.net/content/view/full/16852
    and then rewrite a piece on fair and balanced – and make myself look all intelligent.

  16. OjO Says:

    Budhau:

    I thought there for a second you were accusing me of plagiarism, the plagiarization of anyone’s work without acknowledgement is infact prohibited such are the rudiments of plagiarising it is a known fact journalists within the Fiji times are not only biased but ill educated.

    As for fair it is thus stated “Free from favouritism or self-interest or bias or deception; conforming with established standards or rules” and as for balanced “Being in a state of proper equilibrium” it is therefore noted these journalists do not or partly conform to the basic principles of Fair and Balanced journalism.

    For their lack of education is document in the courts, their lack of fair and balanced reporting is reflect in the articles they disseminate.

    Recently they were found in contempt of court whether it is through lack of discernment of facts or just downright negligence for the facts are recorded against them as for their lack of fair and balancing reporting it is due in part to their lack of journalistic skill.

    Anne Fussell may turn around the somewhat distorted mentality within the Fiji times, and if she succeeds the people of Fiji can only advantage from it, rather than been fed half truths.

    “It is common for university researchers and or journalists to rephrase and republish their own work, tailoring it for different academic journals and newspaper articles, to disseminate their work to the widest possible interested public. However, it must be borne in mind that these researchers also obey limits: If half an article is the same as a previous one, it will usually be rejected. One of the functions of the process of peer review in academic writing is to prevent this type of “recycling”.

    Make of it what you may regard the above but one thing I am cognisant of is the fact If I may say so very very Intelligent something some people are lacking.

  17. OjO Says:

    Hey Bud:

    How’s that horse of yours am just curious do you use a saddle or spike to sit on for it seems your third eye is rather unsettled you might consider doing away with that spike for it also appears you have a bad case of strabismus.

  18. OjO Says:

    Hey Bud:

    Further to my piece I would like to point out no one person can claim exclusivity to the words “Fair and balanced” for the meanings of such words can and almost always utilised in various ways with various meanings.

    I will venture off to relax and watch rugby, please try and cogitate the reused quote below because it is pertinent to this issue.

    “Words differently arranged have a different meaning, and meanings differently arranged have different effects” (Blaise Pascal

    This is it for now Ni Sa Moce.

  19. Budhau Says:

    Hey Ojo, you idiot – so who you trying to impress in here, those journalists in Fiji they at least have an audience and they have a job and a life – trying to give them advice, you ain’t in that league, dude.

    I really got you going in circles this time, didn’t I? In an earlier thread you had also got very excited. It seems you really don’t have a life and this is the most excitement you have had in some time.
    You seem to go out of your way to tell us that you have a life – that rugby match or that lunch and all that.

    As for your above post – you got this whole idea from that mediamonitors.net article “What Does “Fair and Balanced” Journalism Mean?
    Your line “..though it is far more important for these journalists to cognise these facts one cannot balance truth with lies.”
    That is straight out of that discussion from mediamonitors – “What does “fair and balanced” mean, when applied to journalism, anyway? Does it mean balancing the truth with a lie? Q: What do you get when you balance the truth with a lie? A: You get a partial truth or a partial lie. Is that what good journalism is about?”

    Hey Ojo, some of this might be helpful:
    “….writers using long words needlessly …… are seen as less intelligent than those who stick with basic vocabulary and plain text — suggesting efforts to impress readers by ……searching through a thesaurus may have the opposite effect.”

    This was not about me complaining about those “big” words, what I was saying was that you were using those words needlessly. If you made the above piece somewhat simpler, people in here will probably rate intelligence much higher and find your piece impressive – since it looks like you are out here to impress folks.

    I also see some underlying psychological issues that you may also want to look into.

  20. Dugong Says:

    Bud
    You won by 3 points

  21. OjO Says:

    Bud:

    You have not realised that I have chewed you up and spat you out a few threads back, I don’t know whose running who around in circles it appears with all the reserved word power I possess it has you befuddled.

    Now to a more serious note, give the people of Fiji credit for they are not as crackbrained or as stupid as you think they are not withstanding those biased journalists which by the sound of things you are one it seems your irascibility has the better of you take a chill pill.

    It has me gobsmacked how someone with your supposed intellectual ability can’t comprehend what is written and as for psychological issues you can bet your bottom dollar you are in dire need of such help or what it’s called when a person similar to your level of mentality that is incognisant I think it’s known as mentality deficient.

    Now like a good little boy get on your tortoise and take a very slow ride into the sunset oh watch out for that spike on the hump.

    Oh just before I go life here is great don’t know so much about yours.

  22. Willy Says:

    It will be very hard for Fiji´s press to keep it up and I wish Anne all the best. With economic decline accellerated by an incompetent regime the only answer they will have is more oppression, violation of civil and human rights and violence against everyone who does not agree.
    God bless Fiji

  23. epeli Says:

    Ojo, you da man! or woman! Its about time someone really gave that puffie budhau, a taste of his own medicine? Please don’t encourage him to ride on the tortoise spike hump, he might want to try to see how’s it feels like, in his poffie azzole?

  24. Nostradamus Says:

    Why doesn’t Voreqe appoint himself managing director of the Fiji Times?

  25. Hector Says:

    To serve the people you should be transperant, accountable and be able to be scrutinised and interviewed by the media at any time, any where and any place, irrespective of the venue because the media is the eyes and ears of the people who pay for your salary.
    The media is responsible to the people by being their mouth piece in voicing their question and opinion and getting answers from people who serve the people especially as ministers.
    If you cannot abide by this then you are not worthy of the position you hold in public office.
    You as a minister must at all times, be accountable to the people that is why you are there because you were choosen by them.
    But if you have forced your way in by the barrel of a gun, you are also accountable to the people who pay for your salary.
    So all this mumbo jumbo about critisiing the media people is a load of crepe, because the truth hurts when you face the questions which affects your personality and your job description.
    If you cannot hack it do the honoruble, thing step down and give it to the proffesionals.

  26. Nostradamus Says:

    Or Vuniwanker of all of Fiji?

  27. Dugong Says:

    OJO
    yOU DA ONE HIJACKRD HELL BENT GIVE BACK KUTU WHAT KUTUDEBE NEI PIG OWN, OJO BUDHAU SAY YOU STOL;E DA SITE YOUDO?

  28. Budhau Says:

    Ojo, that “it appears with all the reserved word power I possess it has you befuddled.”

    This ain’t about “word power”, this is about critical thinking not creative writing.
    As for you, I think you are educated beyond your intelligence. Learn to care more about ideas than words….unless when they are naughty words, then I enjoy real creativity.

    BTW, I was surprised that you were able to respond in just one post….and that underlying psychological problem that I mentioned, you may want to look into that, looks like a serious problem.

  29. anon Says:

    Hey Bud, don’t waste your time around here. Your contribution will be better appreciated on the other site.

    There is nothing exciting around here. C’mon Bud meet you on the other side.

  30. Millie Says:

    anon

    I agree! I have gone over under a different name.

    Budhau I am sure SWM will let you in.

    This site may just shut down because of the lack of interest. It will then solve the “password” problem.

  31. OjO Says:

    In the last forty eight hours it was reported two women fell victims to their spouses, while this types of flagitious crimes must cease I personally feel such organisations as Fiji Women’s Crisis Centre and all other NGO’s are delinquent in their duties and ought to concern themselves more with women issues rather than to engage in political issues.

    Our children are also victims of such heinous crimes and all the while we the people are fed lies from this disingenuous lot that they now believe the lies they spin, they are disgrace to all women regardless of age.

    The rape of innocence among the younger women is in fact a telling tale of their lack of sophistication within the morally bankrupt organisation which fails to educate the woman folks of our nation yet these people would gladly jump on the band wagon to politicise and perpetuate their somewhat distorted ideals.

    They are not worthy of the office they hold, they are less of a women than those women whom succumb to brutality among other heinous crimes.

  32. Dugong Says:

    Godby good bye me english fuck all.

  33. desparados Says:

    Those 2 flea-ridden dogs : dugong and millie, still trying to recruit Budhau for SWM… so much for smart strategies, LOL…

  34. Budhau Says:

    This site sucks….come guys just give it up. Gove this site back to Kutu – you bunch of back stabbing thieves.

    Come on Adi K…. the guy trusted you and gave you the password – and what did you you,
    Just send a email to Kutu with the password – and we set the funeral for this site for this Saturday.

    Ojo you idiot – you know why the Womens Center, the other NGO, the trade Unions and all them wanna comment of the state of affairs in Fiji – because all these guys and and the rest of us are better off in a Democracy. So it is their “job” to stand up for democracy.

    Also a a general rule when a democratically elected government is removed by a dictator – the crime rate goes up – maybe that is why the Women’s Center is concerned.

    I think the Women’s Center has always done a fine job, and an exceptional job since the coup – I suggest that the next elected government give the head of the Women’s Center the that Human Rights position now held by Shameem.

    Dugong…your English fuck all, me..I speak Hinglish…the guy with the English….that is our boy Ojo….but the guy cant figure out why we have so much crime in Fiji…. just blame it on the Women’s Center.

    OK guys, I will switch off the light on my way out on Satuday. JUST GIVE THAT PASSWORD TO KUTUSEBE.

  35. senijiale Says:

    Well, no updates for the last couple of days so I wonder if the moderator has no intention of maintaining Kutu’s blog any longer? If so, pls don’t let this blog die a natural death, as Bud keeps ordering – just let Kutu have his password back and let the chips fall where they may.

    Looks like that dirty ‘ol F.I.R.M/Dugong & groupie are still lurking around looking to spoil bloggers who hve decided to remain here or recruit others over to his money-laundering site 8) And he claimed he was sooo busy managing half a million followers. As Bud likes to say – Your a@se ga.. lol!

  36. Willy Says:

    Nobody gives a fuck anymore. That is what its come down to. Perhaps rightfully so. Come over to NZ or Oz and get a life. Let Frank govern his own croonies.

  37. OjO Says:

    Hi Bud;

    How’s my token Indian brother doing today, I hope you doing fine considering you must have endured a harrowing journey aboard your spiked back tortoise.

    Your colleagues in the Fiji Times are they still pumping out distorted articles maybe you need to lend them your tortoise or failing that adopt a pet Qitawa this form of therapy works wonders just ask yourself.

    The weather here has just turned south there goes my fishing trip so I decided to drop you a line I hope you don’t mind

  38. Budhau Says:

    No Ojo, you don’t have this token crap – either you consider an Indian a brother or you don’t….unless you are asking the “brother” to for spare change.

    That fishing trip – yeah, Ojo – we believe that have a life.

    I think that Fiji Times editor is doing a fine job (for a Fijian, he seems to be doing OK).

    That suugested form of therapy – why had it worked wonders for you – it does not like it.

    BTW – those Fijians in the media in Fiji and the few expats – I don’t think someone like you can tell them how to do their job, just like those other folks in with the NGOs. (unless you think the best and the brightest have left the country – and that would be mostly Indians – so you think that Vijendra Kumar as editor during the Rabuka coup did a better job then this Netani dude)

    Senijiale – this site will die, and I will be here to turn the lights off when that happens.

    I just can’t figure this out – that Adi K and her gang were all concerned about justice and democracy and all that crap, they gained Kutu’s trust by showing their commitment to the cause and than they stab him in the back. Now they will just let this site rot. Some real insecure bunch of M’fckers.

    And that Dudong guy – thats our good buddy Natewa Prince, remember him – slightly immature, but overall a sharp guy… unlike this idiot Ojo.

    Hey Willy – so the heat is just getting to be too much – you want folks to just pack up and leave – just like those Indo’s had been doing since 1987 – Kali Bhago.

  39. Dugong Says:

    3pts Bud -1pts ADI k also known as Ojo.

  40. senijiale Says:

    Bud – if the site goes then I guess its tough luck for us. Unlike you, I don’t believe Adi K or whoever did hijacked this site did so to get back at Kutu but to get it off other ‘insignificant creeps’ as they referred to them but ain’t wasting another sec trotting down that road again…

    Whilst the “causes” of ‘justice, upholding the Constitution/rule of law & principles of democracy’ are important to me, I’ve not one to readily jump aboard some seemingly popular bandwagon all because its convenient to do so… the ‘end justifies the means’ and all that.

    Hear that Dugong? Your hanging out here advertising yr SWM reveals more about you than you care to show – minus 50 points vei iko, lol!

    Willy – I hear you and I disagree for I would absolutely encourage everyone to stay on and see this impasse through. It ain’t gonna last people! I would encourage particularly our young professionals not to leave if they can help it for FIJI NEEDS YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER … for these PIGS can’t rule Fiji for the next 10 yrs esp. one that’s already spiraling out of control into abyss of bankruptcy.

    And when we do get back to parliamentary democracy and yes we will! you will all be NEEDED to work your asses off and help THE PEOPLE pick the pieces and build us all a much stronger foundation.

    Nothing wrong with being an idealist, is there Bud?

  42. Budhau Says:

    Seni, I know that FIRM was a dickhead, and that he should not have gone around deleting Adi K’s posts. I also understand that some people were pissed off at Kutu for doing this merger with Tui Savu, and now the SV.org has basically become a mouthpiece for SDL and Qarase. BTW, when Qarase goes on this Australian trip, I am sure he will visit our boy on Townsville – and I am sure there is enough money for the magiti.

    Having said that – I don’t think t that these buggers in here had any right to change the password and lock out Kutu. There is this thing called proportionality – where the punishment should fit the crime. Just because FIRM screwed up does not mean you lock out this guy who started this site – Kutu did not do this for himself, but for a cause that we many of you believe in. There were others who started their own site, but this Kutu guy had one of the most successful site. As for me I think most of these anti-IG sites would have banned, but this Kutu guy stood but for this “freedom of speech” thing and explained as to why I should be allowed to have my say in here.

    BTW talking about proportionality – How about if a Fijian youth takes off with my wallet in the street of Suva, would it be justified for me to run him down with my car…. you get my point, that is what happened to Kutu.

    ..and look what has happened to this site since – they took it away from Kutu and have run it into the ground – whereas those other guys are up and running. We have had one new thread started in here since Feb 4th, and most creative guy in here is that idiot Ojo.

    BTW…before I was paid by the goons to post messages in here, now I take a percentage off of any money raised on the SV.org site.

  43. Dugong Says:

    Bud
    You are in the habit of saying running people of the street in your car..I remember you said that last year about running over JW.
