Reporting Brain Farts

Y’know New Zealand Herald, just because somebody says something retarded, doesn’t mean you have to report it, let alone put it at the top of your page.  Case in point:

…SPCA chief executive Robyn Kippenberger told APNZ it was also vital he was kept away from any animal.

“He’s had a conviction for bestiality and so it would seem to me that as his crime was against animals, they also are victims of his and so they should be considered and have protection from him.”

Who cares if Stewart Murray Wilson buggers his pet dog?!  Surely that is the least of anybody’s worries?  The SPCA clearly have too much time on their hands, and need to get some perspective, but you sort of expect them to say stupid things.  What we shouldn’t expect is that the Herald makes a story out of them, and treats the complaint seriously.

It seems Granny Herald is not alone in this either.  The Daily Mail has a whole story about racist tweets at the Olympics.  What next?  Are they going to start reporting on the crap people say when they post comments on YouTube videos?!
