Shame on the Herald! Shame on editor, Shayne Currie! Shame on the kiwi MSM!
UPDATE: Stuff have an abbreviated version of Manukia's sacking. The Herald on Sunday have published an apology and retraction:
The Herald on Sunday apologises to Mr Anthony Solomona and retracts statements said to have been made by him in an article published on October 16, 2005...Not enough! I want blood!! :-)
Editor publishes a lame, whiney defence of journos (snicker!) and sneakily tries to shift attention to the indiscretions of various US journalists. What can you say? Anti-American to the bitter end.
