Last weekend’s Financial Times web-site ran its usual large number of articles. They included a “Brilliant – Jacinda leadership” themed one we’ve become so wearingly used to, given it’s utter drivel.
But note this. It was the only article without a by-line. Now why do you suppose that was?
The answer doesn’t require Einstein. You can bet your boots it was written by a New Zealand journalist. Doubtless this was in hope of another report back here of the “World stands in awe of Jacinda” etc. We copped that nonsense a fortnight back in respect of such a piece in the Washington Post. But far from “the world” it transpired it was written by a Kiwi journalist quoting Kiwi comments.
Dishonest journalism won’t wash with the public when all about is economic devastation come election time.
