Adam Smith points out that both the NZ Herald and Radio NZ have repeated the incorrect assertion in Labour’s press release that Jacinda Ardern’s employer (Sir Ronnie Flanagan) is the UK Home Secretary.
What has happened to fact checkers in the media?
Sir Ronald is in fact not even an MP. He is a professional cop working in the Home Office.
Note that I am not in any way suggesting Ardern is respondisble for promoting her boss to Home Secretary. I suspect someone in Labour just summarised her CV incorrectly.Tags: Jacinda Ardern, Media, Ronnie Flanagan
