Unbalanced journalism

Stuff has an article (first in a series) on the issue of whether or not child support payments from fathers should be used to offset the cost of the DPB paid to their mothers. There are pros and cons to both the status quo, and the mooted change.

But you would not get to understand any of those pros and cons from the article. Every single person quoted in it is in favour of changing the law. There are eight people quoted in the article and all eight support a change. There was presumably no attempt made to get comment from someone who supports the status quo.

And this is why trust in media keeps falling.
