The NZ Herald has run an article today that is headlined “Candidates for the Mayor of Auckland give their views“.
I though great, let’s see what they all have to say, only to find that it isn’t all the candidates it is just Phil Goff and Vic Crone.
A reader emailed:
I was scanning the Herald this morning (for my sins) and saw this piece from the Auckland Mayoral candidates discussing the budget.
As I understood John Palino is a candidate so why hasn’t he been asked his opinion?
I don’t want to appear to be a conspiracy theorist but I think the left wing media are orchestrating this campaign before it even starts.
They know that Crone hasn’t a hope so they’re touting her as the right wing candidate leaving an easy run in for Phil Goff.
Am I alone in this thinking?
