The Kiwi Gun Blog has been campaigning for more accurate reporting of the gun issue in our media. We have yet to receive a response from a single news editor. More details HERE.
Instead – they appear to be doubling down on the fake news.
Check out THIS effort from the NZ Herald:
Gasp! GUNS and drugs!
The real story:
A BB Gun…
But for any reader skimming the headlines it would appear as if guns really are the continuous threat claimed by the Police Union.
We have made a formal complaint – you may wish to as well:
Lets shame them into actually doing their job.
Our formal complaint has been ignored so we will lay a complaint with the Press Council.
One of our readers received THIS reply from the Herald:
The snide reply of course gives the literal definition of why a BB toy is NOT a ‘Gun’.
As if it really needed explaining.
