Susan Pepperell of the NZ Herald
While doing research for a rather lengthly post, that
I may or may not end up posting, I came across,
Susan Pepperell writer for the New Zealand Herald.
She sums up the disingenuous writing style of not
only the New Zealand media, but the left wing
Feminist blogosphere and the relationship the
Herald and the blogosphere keeps quiet.
I discovered during my research, that she had written
a piece on someone, and in her piece she describes
this woman as inspirational and goes on to mention
all the hardships she has gone through and how
brilliant this lady is.

to get across.
One of the more sneaky tricks used by the
writers of the nzherald is too quote these
writers, but again not telling the public of
the previous relationship they have.
For myself this is almost like some repulsive
form of viral marketing, in fact it's downright
If as a Journalist you want to make a point,
how about getting someone neutral, or
at least, at the very very least, LET the
public know, you know the person your

how about you guys, stop being sneaky and being
