Herald tries selective cropping


In an article the other day by Fran O'Sullivan above
the headline Peters Meets Rice over US Ties the Herald
used a photo attributed to Reuters.

Here it is.










The actual photo as supplied by Reuters however tells a different story.


It also has this caption;
New Zealand's Foreign Minister Winston Peters (2nd R) stands in his
position on a podium as his counterparts (Clockwise L-R) Brunei's
Foreign Minister Lim Jock Seng, Indonesia's Foreign Minister Hassan
Wirajuda, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Singapore's
Foreign Minister George Yeo gather for a group photo after their APEC
Ministerial Meeting plenary session in Pusan November 16, 2005.
Leaders of 21 economies will gather in the South Korean city of Pusan
this week for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.

Eventually they get to this photo.

However still missing in action are any photos of Condi and Peters
actually together, not pretending as the Herald would have us believe.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
