    Abraham Lincoln didn't have to deal with Paddy Gower demanding he account for every piss splatter in the urinal.

    Eloquently put, Stephen.

    I think it's very ironic that the Herald's commenting guideline says:

    We aim to have healthy debate. But we won't publish comments that abuse others

    Why don't they apply that to their columnists? Although it's significant that the Herald notes that O'Sullivan is "A columnist for the NZ Herald" rather than a journalist.

    Not picking up on false equivalences, and subsequently falling for misdirection.

    Fran's not falling for anything. She's part of the misdirection.

    Oh for the good old days when I was the only me on the internet, now there are thousands of me – we gave our kids both our surnames, they’re still unique

    Exactly why I use nzlemming everywhere ;-)

    The Farrar angle is there now, under the heading ‘Dirty Politics’.

    It's entirely possible that 'the Fish' (as Russell called him) was alerted to it after the initial report, perhaps through these very pages ;-)

    Interesting that the heading includes single quote marks. Is that because it is quoting somebody (ie it is in speech marks), or is this a use of scare quotes.

    Not scare quotes as much as lack of proper style options in composing headlines. Single quotes are often used to denote book titles, as is underlining (but on the web that would look like a link). Double quotes are used to indicate someone else's words, rather than the reporter's.
