A great example of media bias

Edgeler nails it with this comparison. Winston's hyperbole has been a major story in every news outlet for many days. There has been many columns about how this is a major issue for the Government etc etc.

But the far far far worse hyperbole from the Party gets a total free pass. It is reported once, without comment. Where are the columns decrying Ngarewa-Packer? Where are the shouted questions to Chris Hipkins demanding he denounced Ngarewa-Packer's comments? Where are the opinion pieces decrying such extreme language?

The media have been so uneven handed, that it actually proves the underlying point Winston is getting at – we have a media that overall is hostile to the non-left.
