Bias at the Herald? No-o-o-o-o-o!

From Sir Humphrey’s

Here’s an interesting game. Search news sites for the frequency of the terms “far-left” and “far-right“.

The NZ Herald – far-left: 87, far-right: 432 (334 of them from its garbage Independent and Reuters-oriented international news section). That’s a ratio of nearly 1:5, even including results from the sports section as part of the far-left count (!!).

So in a world of socialist regimes and social(-welfare) democracies, the NZ Herald’s International editorial stance apparently results in… many references to the ‘far-right‘. Because of all those Ayn Rand-worshipping nation states popping up around Antarctica, obviously.
