Move over Mediawatch.
Thesproutandthebean have outed more biased reporting in Granny Herald:
the abysmal attempt at rationalising the retention of a monarchy in this herald opinion piece was made interesting by what was omitted rather than included. the authors were Sean Palmer and Simon O’Connor and this was the declaration we got of their interests:
“Sean Palmer is completing a doctorate in political studies on the monarchy and the implications of a shared head of state at AUT. Simon O’Connor has a background in political philosophy and an interest in constitutional issues.”
what the herald forgot to mention was both of them were part of national mp jackie blue’s campaign team in 05 and that sean palmer worked as jackie blue’s parliamentary agent. hmmmmmmmm thank you for informing me google, fork you new zealand print media
