Thugs to Port, Thugs to Starboard

It’s not just POAL and MUNZ slugging it out at the port, on the streets and on the airwaves, the PR battle also sees blogs thugging it out – or trying to out-thug each other.

Whaleoil has been posting daily about various aspects of the Ports of Auckland dispute, and while less prolific The Standard has also having a few bashes at the PR battle too.

It all adds to the general mayhem of misinformation.

There’s verbal thuggery to port, and verbal thuggery to starboard.

And the workers caught in the middle still get thumped in the wallet.

This post can’t do much about, but it’s been written to prove a point about sensationalising headlines.
