This item about Voqere Bainimarama's alleged assault on Pio Tikoduadua was a topic on last night's TVNZ 1 News, and has since spread to the social media. This is what I wrote on Facebook in reply:
"This is not News. TVNZ took two weeks to report the incident that was reported in Fiji, on the social media and on my blog, www.crosbiew.blogspot.com, on 9th August, two weeks ago.
"On TVNZ Barbara Dreaver said the Fiji Government refused to comment, but failed to mention that it would be improper for it to do so as the matter is before the Court, as the Attorney-General made clear at the time.
"Irrespective of whether Bainimarama is found guilty or not, this is either lazy or irresponsible journalism."
