The first issue of Incite Politics gave Bryce Edwards a very low rating on the trustworthy scale. His bias has been extremely apparent since Dirty Politics hit.

Pretending Whaleoil does not exist and wishing that it no longer has any influence, is not the same thing as it actually not existing and having no influence. Perhaps this is part of the problem with New Zealand’s mainstream media and one of the many reasons why Bryce Edwards has penned a touching obituary for it.
