The ODT and NZ Herald often run the same columns.
Today they both published one by Bob Jones.
The ODT subs did what they were supposed to do and edited out a paragraph in which Jones delighted in a protester committing suicide after he’d told him to.
But where were the Herald subs? They left the offending paragraph in until readers reacted.
The ODT column isn’t on-line. The Herald’s edited version is now with an apology for causing offence to some readers.
Keeping Stock has the original version.
Jones enjoys a reputation for blunt speaking and writing but he crossed a line with this column. The Herald subs ought to have realised that and edited it, as the ODT ones did.
