• Where’s the Self-Respect?

    If we needed any confirmation, we have it in spades in today’s edition of the Herald; our supposedly leading daily newspaper is determined to do what it can to decide the outcome of the next election – to act, that is, not as a newspaper but as the mouthpiece for those seeking a National/Act government.

    The Herald will provide a platform for any story or story-teller that can be presented as reflecting badly on the government. Such partisanship constitutes a real – and unacceptable – threat to our democracy. It is astonishing that self-respecting journalists could lend themselves to such an enterprise.
