Focusing on the issues

By Steven | November 21, 2011

I know I’m straying from media law stuff again. Let’s call it general media ethics. But I’m staggered that we can have an election campaign without discussing the ideas in two recent and significant New Zealand books: Nicky Hager’s “Other People’s Wars”, which accuses successive governments of being much more deeply involved in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan than we were told, and Roger Brooking’s “Flying Blind”, which exposes our current approach to penal policy as hopelessly ineffective and cogently explains that if we don’t take serious steps to address the drug, alcohol and literacy problems of our offenders, crime will just keep cycling along.
