see http://stuff.co.nz/4005097a11.html where we find towards the bottom of the article:
"The bill has split the country, with opponents planning marches through New Zealand this week while supporters including Barnardos, Plunket, UNICEF and the Children's Commissioner created a flyer congratulating politicians voting for it." - By Irene Chapple - Sunday Star Times | Sunday, 25 March 2007
Well, no, you're getting *stuff* wrong. When the country is split over an issue, it will be obvious - ie. fewer than 85% of New Zealanders will be opposed to such a bill.
Heck, I once considered journalism as a sweet job, but when I see the sad things these "reporters" are being forced to say, it makes me think again.
THE BILL HAS NOT SPLIT THE COUNTRY.
85% OF US SAY NO.
Just report ok, don't filter all your articles through the Greens and Labour's sieve before releasing them to the public.
