Compare & contrast

The left-wing blog The Standard have published their top ten most popular posts of 2018. I thought that it would be very interesting to compare and contrast their three most read stories with ours.

Our number one most read story was about conflict at The NZ Herald.

The Standard’s number one story was about conflict in the National party.

Whaleoil’s second most read story was about the hit job on Jami-Lee Ross by the National party.

The Standard’s second most read story was about rumours on social media about the prime minister’s partner Clarke Gayford being carefully squashed by the New Zealand police. ( The rumours not the man).

Whaleoil’s third most popular post was about the horrible text sent to Jami-Lee Ross by a female National MP ( who to this day remains protected by the National party)

The Standard’s third most popular post was about the leaker of Simon Bridge’s expenses. (Interestingly these leaks have not stopped since Jami-Lee Ross went on sick leave.)
