When headlines go wrong, Mike Williams is Bay’s worst crim?

Not from the Herald but it is also an APN title.

I don’t think “Fat Tony” is going to be pleased with that.

    As the immortal C Montgomery Burns would say ” Excellent!”

    he looks like a fat crime boss.

      well – he is the ex. President of the Labour Party… and they are all related to the Aussie Labour Party… and just look what the ICAC is finding out about Labour’s ethics, morals, honesty and corruption free ethos…
      Birds of a feather…

    That is so funny, thanks for publicising.

    It is said that 80% of all readers will only read the headline, too.

    Worse, for him, not only does it link Williams to that derogatory headline it also puts a further derogatory bit below the photo in heavy black typeface. While the correct data are there but in pale and italic typeface.

    And, worse, the correct data are phrased at a senior high school average reading level, like for example 15 syllables within 10 quite obscure words. The great bulk of the population would not grasp their meaning, even if they read them.

    Which quango is he installed in now? He’s getting old. He should really aim to have at least one real job on his CV before he retires.

    Bays worst criminal? His behaviour while Labour Party President qualifies him for a much higher honour than that – New Zealand’s worst criminal maybe?
