BadJournalism

By Steven | May 2, 2011

Meant to write about this last week.

How is it that the Sunday Star-Times can believe that a rehashed UK book on criminal justice (Badlands, NZ: A land fit for criminals) is important enough to be front-page news, but that the claims it makes are not important enough to seek out some New Zealand experts to evaluate them?

    Never mind the lack of balance – what about the lack of basic analysis of facts?

    “The fact is that all governments since then have gone out of their way to introduce policies that have encouraged criminals to become more criminal.” Really, how?

    “Almost every piece of criminal justice legislation passed during the period has made it easier for judges to avoid sending criminals to prison, by expanding the number of non-custodial alternatives available to them.” Such as what?

    “In addition, other acts of parliament, as well as procedural and administrative changes, have put numerous obstacles in the way of finding, arresting and convicting offenders.” Examples, please?

    Instead we get: “He cited how in 2003 Prime Minister Helen Clark visited the family of a boy injured in a dog attack, and politicians promised to introduce tough new laws and give dog control officers greater powers. But he said the same response wasn’t made towards the victims of serious crime.”

    This actually makes me long for the days when the SST was obsessed with celebrity-related stories and mortgage rates.
