Anchor “and now we go live to whatsherface outside the High Court in Christchurch to tell us the latest in the Weatherston trial”
Whatsherface “the prosecution is saying that Weatherston committed a grave breach of the Crimes Act but, look, I know of this other guy who killed someone and he was never caught. It happens all the time. So maybe Weatherston’s only mistake was being so obvious about it. Let’s not be too hard on him”
Horrible. Dispicable. That reporter would never work again.
It’s the line we got from Garner and Mold last night, and Patterson this morning: ‘we’ve been getting secret leaks of personal info for years. Bennett’s only mistake was doing it openly’.
No. Her mistake wasn’t getting caught. She broke the law. It was illegal when ministers did it on the sly. You should have dobbed them in. It’s illegal now.
Obviously this was fed to the media from Key’s office. Garner and Mold didn’t magically come up with the same line to round off their reports. Do better guys. Don’t be apologists for bullying ministers who have broken the law.
Even if you know others have broken the law. Even if Taylor suggested it really nicely and promises you some titbits in return.
