So I visit the NZ Herald site today and I see this:
OMG! Key was misled by the US?! This is a scandal! So I click on the link, and…
Note that the key words “claims Dotcom” were left out of the headline. This is quite a crucial bit of information, wouldn’t you say? Changes the story somewhat, don’t you think? Just a little?
Actually, there is a MASSIVE difference between John Key being objectively misled by the US as a provable fact, and the mere opinion of Augustus Gloop here. One is big news worthy of a headline. The other is not news at all. We know what Dotcom thinks. We don’t give a f*ck. Why is that news? Why pretend it is news? What does the Herald think it is doing?!!!
