Brian Edwards on NZ Herald’s photos

In a list of bouquets and brickbats, Brian Edwards notes a brickbat:

To the New Zealand Herald which accompanied a report today on the National Party Conference with deliberately chosen, highly unflattering photographs of Paula Bennett, Hekia Parata and John Key (with double chins) and a laboured attempt at a humorous caption. There can be no journalistic defence for this sort of offensive demeaning of public figures in a news story.

It did seem rather stupid.
