Someone reads Whaleoil apart from Herald sub-editors

It looks like the editor of the Waikato Times reads Whaleoil:

Mr Shearer, however, is saying the sorts of things that may perplex some people. He seemed relaxed about working with Mana Party leader Hone Harawira, for example, declaring he would respect ideas wherever they came from. But Mr Harawira has a penchant for making contentious remarks about Pakeha. Phil Goff (when he was Labour’s leader) ruled out going into coalition with the Mana Party as long as Mr Harawira was in charge. 

On the other hand, Mr Shearer ruled out NZ First MP Richard Prosser as a minister in any administration he might head.

Mr Shearer’s tolerance threshold was tested also in an FM Breakfast interview. Asked if there was room for MPs with homophobic views in the Labour Party, he hastily replied: “Oh look yes, absolutely . . .” He struggled from there to explain he didn’t think there were homophobes on his team, although some disagreed with same-sex marriage.

I wonder where they got this material from?
