Which is the bigger liar, government or MSM?

Ministry of Transport “Minitrue” double-spins visitor drivers in crash tales
“… the Overseas Drivers in Crashes report showed the number of crashes involving overseas licence holders – less than 6 per cent of all fatal and injury crashes – had stayed relatively constant over the last 10 years despite the number of international visitors increasing by about 30 per cent”, according to MSM reporting Minitrue’s Associate Transport Minister Fraig Coss as saying. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11630818
The minister said despite the high number of deaths last year, the long-term road toll was falling [he knows that well enough because they are manipulating the fatality figures on a daily basis.]
Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent.
[However, Minitru wants you to falsely believe the numbers of road fatalities and serious injuries have fallen instead of rising…]
“We know the number of crashes involving overseas licence holders — less than 6 per cent of all fatal and injury crashes — has stayed relatively constant over the last 10 years when the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent”.
“The report shows that very few short-term visitors crash within their first few days in New Zealand, and of those that do crash, fatigue is generally not a contributing factor [can you believe this bullshit?] Overseas licence holders, including short-term visitors, crash for the same reasons as New Zealand drivers [DUI, driving while taking sleep-inducing antipsychotic medication, or forgetting to take the daily dose, operating a road-unworthy vehicle…]”

Fatal crashes: Only one report allowed today!
Motorcyclist killed in style. A motorcyclist was killed in a road crash involving a Mercedes car in Christchurch at the intersection of Pound Rd and Ryans Rd just before 1pm. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11630982
The State’s Deadly Secrets
To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, and unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.]
Today is DAY 134 of the latest TOURISTS or truth? campaign in NZ
To keep the fatality figures in line with last year’s, they’ll have to manipulate them on a daily/weekly basis.
Blog estimate: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year. [Most probably] up to 305 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016
Serious Road Crashes
Based even on the government’s heavily manipulated data, an average of 25 crashes occur on NZ roads each day, resulting in 31 reportable injuries including 14 hospitalizations (8 serious injuries) and at least one fatality.
That is 700 crashes in last four weeks (since April 2), resulting in 868 reportable injuries including 392 hospitalizations (224 serious injuries), and at least 28 fatalities.
However, no more than about three dozen so serious crashes have been reported over this period.
What happened to the other 660 or so crashes that have occurred over the past 4 weeks???
There’s clearly a reporting ban [also] on serious crashes in effect. If all of the serious crashes were to be reported, police would be unable to manipulate the road toll.
