“REVEALED: Parts of New Zealand to be hit hardest by our next big quake”

That heading is currently the lead item on the New Zealand Herald’s website. I think you will agree it’s unequivocal.

But does it reveal parts of New Zealand to be hit hardest by our next big quake as the heading proclaims? No, instead in a detailed account it outlines current efforts to do so and includes this line: “Presently, there’s no way to predict where, when or with what force a large earthquake will be unleashed in the future.”

The article was written by the Herald’s Science Reporter Jamie Morton. If Jamie bowls into the Herald’s office and viciously attacks, indeed even murders, the drooling halfwit responsible for that heading, no court in the land would convict him. Go to it Jamie. Do your duty.
