Former ACT MP Deborah Coddington isn’t a journo anymore. Shot her reputation with the infamous ‘Asian Angst’ piece. Just does opinion pieces now. Strange, then, to see her by-line on 2 Herald articles attempting to vindicate disgraced conflict of interest judge Bill Wilson. Turns out her husband was Wilson’s lawyer.
Honestly can’t understand what the Herald editors were thinking. What’s the point in publishing two articles defending a guy accused of a conflict of interest written by someone who herself has a conflict of interest?
If anything, it makes Wilson look worse. The only person the Herald could get to write nice things about him is the ex-journo wife of his lawyer.
What a total waste of time. Where’s the professional standards?
