I am on the Huddle tonight with Larry Williams and Josie Pagani.
Our topics are:
- The allegations facing Brendan Horan - a mere family fight or a devious man willing to steal from his dying mother. Either way it doesn’t look good for him. (Not that he’ll be missed in Parliament because no one can recall that he’s actually done anything there!)
- Jetstar’s latest cock up. This time cancelling flights on Christmas eve. This airline appears to go out of its way to court bad publicity! Seriously you think they would have learnt by now?
- Apparently Phil Goff didn’t get a fair deal in the last election. The release is below.
New research to be released this evening concludes that four of the country’s top newspapers were biased in their coverage of the last election.
The research by Massey University Associate Professor Claire Robinson finds that the Herald, Herald on Sunday, Dominion Post and Sunday Star-Times all exhibited substantial bias in their selection and use of images during the election campaign, most of it in favour of Prime Minister John Key.
“Labour and Phil Goff have real grounds to feel they were unfairly treated in print during the last election campaign,” Dr Robinson says.
