SST apology

The SST has apologised to its readers and those groups targeted by the allegations including the SIS.

However instead of leaving it there they defend what they did saying they acted in good faith and that given the nature of the claims they believed they had a duty to put them in the public arena. Totally untrue. Untested claims have no duty of publication. I could claim that Jim Anderton broke into my house, stole all my money and gave it to Kiwibank. I wouldn’t expect the media to run that story without getting it verified.
