I like reading the Midweek to find out what’s happening locally and I only read the editorial and thumbs up and down bits to see if there’s just one thing I can agree with. But when I read Kath Brown’s recent vitriolic piece about Meteria Turei, I was gobsmacked. Aren’t editors supposed to at least pretend to be impartial? Now this week Kath tells us she can’t stand TV reporters who give us their opinion on the news! (I did not. KB). Something seriously wrong here. Pip Abernethy.
An editorial is an opinion, as is Ups and Downs of Life, Pip. They are not news items. Those need to be unbiased. I cannot help how you interpret what I write, but please do not accuse me of saying something I quite clearly did not.
